Disappearing Act

I am notorious for starting blogs, investing time and energy into them, and then disappearing into the night. See, I didn't renege on my quest to do one new thing a week...I just didn't write about them. Truly, I did them. And some of them were incredible. I ate new things, went new places, met...

This Post is Inadequate

I know I've been failing pretty spectacularly at keeping up with my writing goal for 2018, but rest assured I┬áhave been doing one new thing a week.
