Back to Basics

It's funny how often we can let things slide. Time has a way of getting away from us if we aren't watching it, and the next thing you know, it's been a week, a month, a year. Whether it's calling your mother, writing a letter to a friend, or even something as simple as cleaning up around the apartment, if you don't make a regular habit of reminding yourself to do things, suddenly they've piled sky-high.

My intention is for this to be updated weekly, at minimum, though I hope to update more frequently even than that, if time allows.

Hopefully, this will also allow me to focus my other blog entirely on my writing, and other things going on in my life.
