2016 is here, and with that comes the traditional rush of New Year’s Resolutions: ways to improve in all aspects in their lives to prosper and make this “their” year.

Like most others, I too have resolutions for the new year. Welcome to the Year of Refinement.

Process Refinement

In 2015, I probably worked more than I ever have before. From school to journalism to producing videos on YouTube, 2015 was a big year for me, but I want 2016 to be a time where I focus on refining my process for producing content to be more efficient and have more time to relax and do activities like watching TV/movies and playing video games.


2015 was a big year over on Paw Print Media, with GameSentral having its biggest year yet and the launch of AutoSentral.

In 2016, I want to focus on continuing to grow AutoSentral and the rest of Paw Print Media’s sites, along with posting more often (I really slacked off throughout the second half of the year as school became a priority.)

Meanwhile, I’m going to retool this site. For one, I am cancelling both Photobomb and Awesomeness. These series will live on over on my Twitter and Instagram feeds respectively, but it won’t be on a predetermined schedule. This site will be a place where I vent and write long-form personal content on a weekly basis. For me, this allows for a site that’s more open and flexible rather than confined to the series that began to blossom here.


Here are some of my goals for 2016. Expect full recaps on these towards the end of the year.

  • Read 25 books.
  • Write at least 500 blog posts.

Alright, now let the year of refinement begin!
