Save Me From Another Election Year

I'm going to work very hard here to not lean in any political direction. Being vague, yet opinionated is my goal here. Have mercy on me. It's not easy.

Where has all the kindness gone?

Over the past few months, I've noticed that I've become increasingly irritated at the general public as a whole.

They all come with varying levels of symptoms that I deal with on a daily basis. There are some days when I have to lie there in bed… Continue reading Particularly Persistent Parking Problems
