Are you Okay?

I’m just asking because I’m telling everyone I’m okay. But I’m not really, terribly okay. So yeah, in first world things, I’m okay. Embarrassingly okay. But I miss people.

Making Mistakes

I’m reading a great book right now. It is one I had not heard of before a colleague started a book club.

Make Safe Online Purchases

I don’t know about you, but my online ordering has recently had an uptick. I’m waiting for my groceries to be delivered as I type. It’s something I have never done before. It’s really quite amazing to realize how easily we used to run to the store for small items. Can you believe I ran […]
