Your Consequences Are Not My Problem, but…

I was taking a walk after bingeing the first 3 seasons of “The Good Place” on Netflix. If you’ve seen it, you know what kinds of moral dilemmas they deal with. If you haven’t seen it, suffice it to say they deal with moral dilemmas albeit in a lighthearted yet emotional world.

2019 In Memoriam: We Hardly Knew Me

If you’ve ever read anything of mine, which I assuming you haven’t, then you know just as much about me as the people in my IRL world. But that’s going to change soon.

So there are things going on in my life, as there always are; as there are for you. And these things are finally propelling me towards the edge of touching the beginning of achieving a starting kick in the pants to pursue my goals. Eventually.

So, this is my last post of the year. And hopefully my last “I’m finally gonna do it I swear stop laughing I mean it this time” post.

Happy New Year!
