End of the Year:
I reshuffled a few things on my site in 2018 that finally made me happy. I abandoned a standalone blog for Allergic Reactions and nestled it within zzarrillo.com, which I think was the right decision considering its lack of published material. I also spent time building out sections for the work I do, the music I listen to, the shows I attend, random theorems, and an activity log. These are areas I hope and expect to continue updating on a yearly basis as an antidote to my inability to consistently write anything.
Activity Log: A new addition! Featuring my favorite dining and drinking experiences of the year, every flight I took, plus new TV shows and movies I watched.
Music: Find my top ten releases, everything I listened to, and everything I worked on.
Shows: I went to 69 shows in 2018 (nice), which was a sharp decline from recent years.
Theorems: I have thoughts.
Works: Previously broken down by year (2009-present), reorganized into four categories: Miscellaneous, Media, Labels, and Management.
