Three months

It's been nearly three months since I've been able to write anything substantial. Dealing with the loss of a friend, family issues, depression, programming projects and the holidays has really put me in a bad place that I'm desperately trying to dig myself out of. I've had to move yet again, even though I had… Continue reading Three months

Exhausted.

Exhausted, though this word doesn’t completely describe how I feel, it comes fairly close. Since the start of the new year I’ve been living in a hotel room thanks to some really great friends and my mother-in-law.

Devastated

Never before, in my thirty-two years have I ever been this completely devastated by the actions of a political figurehead.
