Today is 2015’s New Year’s Eve Eve.

The eve of New Year’s eve, December 30, 2015.

The 14th anniversary of the last day i drank alcohol.

So tomorrow, December 31 (the “real” New Year’s Eve) is the 14th anniversary of the first sober New Year’s Eve in the previous 28 or so.

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
