Another Sign of Things to Come
I’ve been nearsighted and in thick glasses since the 4th grade. I’ve needed them desperately to see anything every day since then. This morning, I had to take them off to read the small print on my phone. And so it begins…
Every Spare Minute I Have
I just looked and it has been over two weeks since I last posted. This means that I have been incredibly efficient at my job for the last two weeks and that I’m probably missing out on about 3/4 of anything anyone has posted since then as limited down time only lets me check in on my phone while waiting in line or just before I collapse at the end of the day.
