Hello friends. I got a lot done that has essentially been looming over me for awhile. It really started with an impromptu organization of all my papers at home. I feel like a mafioso or grandmother (or both) when I say "my papers" and I quite enjoy that. Retirement statements, insurance policies, lease agreements, oh… Continue reading I Vant to Be Alone!

I can't tell you how many times I've gone on Wikipedia and started with one topic and ended up 500… Continue reading #oddlysatisfying

It's insane to think that the 90s pass for vintage now, but I have to say, it was a great decade to grow up. When I wasn't playing sports or throwing temper tantrums at my brother's birthday parties, I was playing video games.
