My Gut Tells Me To Apologize For Writing This (But I’m Not Going To)

Apparently, I apologize a lot. I'm not just talking about when I actually need to; when I've messed up and I need to own up to my own mistakes. I'm talking about all the time. The phrase "I'm sorry" is apparently one of the main elements in my lexicon, to the point that I hardly… Continue reading My Gut Tells Me To Apologize For Writing This (But I’m Not Going To)

So infatuated was I by Arlen… Continue reading The Desert Spear

It started out fairly well, but as the months dragged on, it did become a bit draining. And frustrating. There were plenty of times I… Continue reading Weighing Value

Quest for Happiness: Week Fifteen

So, last week, I was sicker than I was the week before, so productivity wasn't exactly my strong suit. My groove was thrown off, if you will--and you can tell, with how many goals I didn't meet last week. Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week’s Goal: Complete Week Two and get… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Fifteen
