This is the new year!

This upcoming week is going to be a doozy. I've been at my new job for almost a month now and I think I'm starting to find my rhythm with it. It's not a hard job, it's not even that busy (yet) but it's a job, it's close to home and it's paying me good [...]

Obligatory End of the Year Post

Yes, you see the title, you know what this is going to be. A stoic reflection of all the events that have occurred this year and the hope I have for what lies ahead in the new year. I don't intend for this to come off as cynical but I've already seen so many similar [...]
