Happy New Year! It’s my favorite day: the day I get to put my reading spreadsheet to use and post a nifty infographic.
I must say, 2015 was my best year ever. Sleater-Kinney reunited for the first time in almost a decade, so I went to Minneapolis on Valentine’s Day to see them on one of their tour stops (and almost froze to death). Over the summer I traveled by land through Central Asia, a journey that took me along the Silk Road from Beijing to Istanbul. I’m happy to report that I did not have two sprained ankles this year.
I saw Sleater-Kinney again in Austin, then in September, I traveled to Milwaukee to see Rufus Wainwright perform with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. I fell madly in love with the city in the process. And I finally bought my Smart car, something that’s been a decade in the making; I’d been wanting one since before they were even available in the US.
