Life is Messy

Here you will find words, pictures, thoughts, and observations on life. Anything that doesn’t neatly fit under other categories ends up here. Sometimes it might be a piece of sage advice, some crazy rant or even a hormone surge. Take it for what it is. It might be a random thought I have in the night. It could be something just freely pouring out of my head that might not make sense. It could be a very well researched essay with footnotes and everything. Who knows? Life is unpredictable. All you can do is hold on and enjoy the ride. Maybe you will learn something interesting along the way.
