I’m Still Alive!

Hi, Internet! It’s been a minute. C recently mentioned that I should update the blog, and I was all, “what’s it been, two, three weeks?” Oh, a month and a half? Mmmkay. I didn’t intend to go dark for so long. I thought I’d take a little breather from posting while we prepared for the start…

Unplugging
