So, you know how I mentioned in a previous post, that I had slacked off on working out? I did. For about 2 months. And one of those months was spent eating out almost every day. I'll wait while you pick yourself off the floor. ... Read more

Right now, I sit here, with an indescribable emotion flowing through me. This is good, but I just can't name it. I dunno. I've been thinking a lot about life, career, health and what I want out of all of them. I know what I don't want, but... Read more
