What I Did This Weekend

My opinions – offended by what I say? Meh, move along then. Instead of going over every show that was amazing (or not), I’m just going to give a rundown of the weekend. Isn’t that what I do every year? I’m too lazy to look back. I’ve had little sleep and my brain is overwhelmed read more »

January Burns

Since moving to Minnesota, I knew that January would be a difficult month when it came to weather. Actually, it’s January through May with February or March being the really difficult months.
