I’ve had this idea for a long, long time that I’ve never really put into action.

I think 2021 is the year. Because if there was ever a year that really needs to not suck, this is it.

Here’s the idea: I want to have a personal theme for each month. I’ve tried this before and gotten as far as creating the themes. But in the past, I think, I’ve always gotten too caught up in the planning to really dig into implementing.
