It’s two in the morning, I can’t sleep, and I’m tired of assuaging my progressively wayward thoughts with futile arguments.

The Problem The prospect of returning to work after the holiday break is like walking into an air conditioned room from the Mojave Dessert, it’s rather shocking, and might I add damaging to your immune system. But then again if I catch a cold I’d be forced to stay home? Bahaha “I’m so inspired after […]

“And the angel said unto them: Fear not, for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a savior which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you.” Linus I am as enchanted […]
