“One cannot expect to attain the highest point of exellence without hard work and perseverance.[…] Try to improve to some extent each day and to experience that satisfying pleasure in having conquered what at first seemed to be an impossibility!” - Clarke This is my theme for 2015. No resolutions. Just conquering that which seemed impossible!

Looking back on the stuff above, I feel it is safe to say, I accomplished what I set out to do.
