Taking a Break

Hey gang.

I realize it seems silly to make a post like this here, where I post once every three months tops anyway, but it seemed like the easiest way to write a message I can post across platforms and I am nothing if not lazy efficient.

And the simple explanation for that is I’ve posted so. Many. Wrap-ups. Lately, and even I can get sick of myself when I’m that repetitive. And I’m never sick of myself. Which is why we’re about to spend the rest of this post talking ALL ABOUT ME! Continue reading
