  1. Congrats on reaching all your goals! I like how you’ve broken your overview down, it’s informative and aesthetically pleasing all at once :)

  2. Woot! Looks like a fantastic reading year. I’m working on putting together a review of my year and wishing I had been a bit more organized than I was… Would be nice if I had things put together well enough to post neat charts like you! Maybe next year :)
