Situation: Normal; All F*cked Up.

Bless me dear non-existent readers. It has been over 6 years since my last post Over the past 6 years, I’ve been tempted to re-vist and reboot this blog. But it never seemed the right time to pour things out. Partly because so much has changed in the last few years, that the previous focus […]
