• The snippet and the day that was

    Today I drove a far far away in order to hang out with a friend (which was absolutely worth the whole drive) and then we got tennis rackets at 30% off, which was nice. Then we got pants for the…

  • when books fail

    I started a book today. Reading it, that is. I didn’t get far. Maybe two chapters, and I don’t really like it. I’m going to keep reading, because I thought the premise was so interesting, but I hope things improve.…
