Spotlight 2017: Andrew

Forty-something Andrew,
still looking good

Something in 2016 that...

*you saw or did that was awesome:  Watching the Carolina Panthers with the NFC championship game, then play in the Super Bowl...even though they lost

*you'll remember:  Baptizing Caroline

*you want to forget:  Being asked to lead the HR piece globally for a major restructuring across our entire division.

*scared you:  Realizing that Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton would be our next president.

*you're good at:  Fantasy basketball

*you're proud of:  Watching Andrea and the kids succeed at things

*made you happy:  Going on our family cruise over spring break

*was exciting:  Playing doubles tennis with Andrea and finishing second in one of our tournaments

*you earned, won, or accomplished:  Going 9-2 in my USTA tennis league

Any other notable changes/events for 2016:  I started working from home.

Follow-up from last year's hopes:
Win my fantasy basketball league:  Nope
Finally enjoy BYU football again: For the most part
Get comfortable in my new role at work:  Yes
Let the Lakers get the #1 pick:  No
To see significantly improved home teaching across the High Point stake: Priesthood leaders are having more discussions and conversations with home teachers to help them fulfill their responsibilities, so the quality has improved.

Hopes for 2017:
Hold my own in tennis after getting bumped to a 3.5.
Have the Panthers return to the playoffs.
Win my fantasy basketball league.
