By Michelle

(some eternal productivity wisdom via Ron Swanson of Parks & Rec) One of my repeated lessons this year (I know I’m a stubborn student but I think I’ve finally learned it, let’s all cross our fingers) is that I have a touch of a tendency to overload myself. Here’s what was on my docket for […]
