Weekly Wrap-up – March 8th, 2020

Happy Sunday, y’all! I’ve had a fun morning filming and editing a new video for my YouTube channel. This was my second choice for thumbnail, and I think it’s too hilarious not to use somewhere. It’s been a strange week for me as I’ve been sick and my moods have been all over the place, but […]

Sunday Wrap-up – May 5, 2019

Thoughts Yesterday I took a long drive down to the town where I grew up. It’s probably been close to two years since the last time I was there, despite the fact that I currently live just 45 minutes away. Part of the reason it took me so long was that I have such a […]
