Small Adventures

I've been feeling hopeful lately. Maybe it's because I finally broke down and started reading FiveThirtyEight again after swearing off polls forever in 2016.

An Update: Caverning, Adulting, and Some Crafting

Hello everyone! I'm still struggling with finding a good update schedule for this little blog as I delve deeper into test mode (now less than two months away, gulp).  After doing yoga this morning, I grabbed a cup of coffee and here I am.  If there's anything I've learned in my life, it's that progress… Continue reading An Update: Caverning, Adulting, and Some Crafting
