2021... Reboot... Restart... Continue?

Well it has felt that a lot of things essentially ground to a halt & stopped in March 2020. I'm reminded of an xkcd comic that explains how it has seemed to feel since the pandemic affected the world. There's another xkcd comic has a sentiment I also think people will be able to relate with after g…

2021 So Far...

Well so far the hopeful beginning of this year has been crushed by the weight of the recent news. All I can say is that I still am trying to remain optimistic & hopeful in spite of what's been going on & the pandemic we are still facing. 2020 was one tumultuous hell of a year... I'm crossing my fin…

Dawning of a New Decade

And so we begin... maybe it'll remind us of similar decades past like the 'Roaring 20's'? I'm sure that there will be plenty of defining moments that will leave a mark on the 2020's. We rang in the New Year with a nice small gathering of friends around here which really raised everyone's spirits I…

2019 So Far

So far 2019 has been going pretty well personally. (All the misc. news going on in the world notwithstanding...) But all in all things with The Tiger & i are just fine otherwise.

Howdy folks! Haven't made a journal in a while but figured I should remedy this. So far 2017 has been rather interesting to say the least... plenty of political turmoil since Jan. 20. (And that's about as much as I feel like expressing about it :P) Ralkor & i made a decision to cut down on some of…

Suffering

There's plenty of good quotes about this... but as of recent #LegendOfKorra has plenty of good ones... especially some of which... "Why do GOOD people suffer?"
