If you are anything like me by the time Sunday afternoon rolls around you are already planning out your week. While the thought of grabbing your lunch pail and heading out the door Monday morning is a drag, you’ve at least got a grip on reality and you are readying yourself for the workweek. Part of my Sunday ritual is checking out The Nine Club’s Instagram account in the late afternoon to see what guest they’ll be hosting Monday morning. Chris Roberts and the gang have been bringing us these amazing episodes every Monday morning without fail since January of 2016. I certainly don’t speak for every desk jockey but their show definitely brightens every working skateboarder’s morning.
2017 is nearly a wrap and for the first time in ages I feel that collectively we can all breathe a slight sigh of relief. Why? Well, we made it out of the dumpster fire that was 2017, guys. While that is reason enough to tie one on and celebrate, let’s not get too excited. Regrettably, 2018 is revving up to be just as turbulent. Whether it’s the constant barrage of bad news or social media overload, it’s apparent that it is harder to focus now more than ever. Like many, my mind has was cooked by 2017. So that’s my excuse for why my very cliche year-end “best of” or “listicle” may be missing some very noteworthy things. With that said, in no particular order, here are somethings that made some crumby days brighter in 2017.
