Those noises just help illustrate how badly I need to unplug… Here are the blog posts I referenced: In a […]

Sometimes the Impulsive Choice Is the Right Choice

I have a new project in my life: I’m developing a TV series and writing a script for the pilot episode. It’s fun. SO SO SO SO SO SO FUN! You might say I’m in the multipotentialite honeymoon period right now. I’ve wanted to do this for years. It’s a goal that hasn’t always been […]
