Life Goals Achieved This Week

I actually don’t have that many life goals. I used to, but I either 1) achieved them already, or 2) gave up on them. The big one I gave up on was graduate school and becoming a college professor. At one time, it was my only goal; now it’s something I have absolutely zero interest…

My Neighbor and I Both Ate Our Emotions Today
