I felt a little over average stress yesterday for who knows what core reason and as a result, I couldn’t sleep at all at night. It’s not surprising given the number of things that are happening around. Some of the thoughts among many when I was trying to sleep were…

It’s amusing how one’s action at some point in time leads them to seemingly unrelated actions at a later point. A few weeks ago, I was thinking about how robotic my life is. I work, eat, watch TV, and sleep among the other…

We often excuse ourselves from picking something up or taking a new step in the quest for perfection.
