Think about it. You are leaving the house for the first time today.

Personal (and Blog) Update

What 2021 Has Taught me, and my New Years Resolutions


No, I do not have too much faith in New Year’s resolutions either, because often we think we are going to keep them, then we find it becomes too much, or even circumstances change making it practically impossible (2020 anyone).
