If Not Now, When?

All in all last year was a pretty good year for me; I secured two promotions at work, saved a decent amount of money which I’m always adding to, had an insane trip to Punjab with family and a fun holiday to Rome with friends, got addicted to The Mindy Project and Game of Thrones and … More If Not Now, When?
