You see the exclamation point. You know what that means. It’s happy post time! Exclamation point! I’ve had an active couple days — “active” by my sad, low new standards — but active and happy and certainly worth celebrating. A […]

What Do You Desire?

I’ve been feeling quite introspective lately, which is always a good thing for me and a terrible thing for everyone else in my life. Conversations can quickly and without notice shift from “What should I have for lunch today?” to […]

I’m typically optimistic on Monday mornings. New week! Fresh start! Time to do some ass kicking! On Sunday night, though, I couldn’t sleep. I was stressed about work stuff and my brain was louder than the traffic out on Third […]

The Lessons I Learned In 2012

Date: December 31, 2012 at 8:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26
