2024 Ins and Outs

Marlee Wallace

We’re not going to miss an opportunity to impart our voice and vision onto 2024. These Ins and Outs lists are fun to read and even more fun to write. In a way it’s manifesting what we want for our new year and a tongue in cheek response to previous one.


  • Dinners with friends
  • Maximizing weeknights
  • Game nights
  • Walking after work
  • Candid Photos
  • Trying new things
  • Harnessing creativity
  • Public transportation
  • Thrifting

Overall, the theme is “take every opportunity” whether that’s to spend time with people, do something you’ve never done before, or creating something out of nothing, take every opportunity to do so. As we have learned in a post-pandemic world, the days are long, but the years are short!


  • Complaining about parking
  • Shopping on Amazon
  • Asking for separate checks
  • Disposable bags, cups, utensils
  • Being uninformed
  • Littering

Most of these are self-explanatory but to put a bow on it: We’re not taking anything for granted, we’re using our voice for good, and leaving things better than we found them.

I hope you find humor and value in this list and share it with a friend. Cheers to 2024!
