50 days ’til…I give up on my New Year’s resolution.

136 days ’til…Texas Loves the Children Day, which actually is a thing.

145 days ’til…Penn State men’s basketball wins its first National Championship in team history.

158 days ’til…Easter, which falls on April 20 this year and I’m gonna stop talking now.

163 days ’til…(Ann) Arbor (Is A Whore) Day.
