Yes, I Have A Mustache

Neither my first nor my last, but at current I have the largest mustache I have ever had. There are many pros and cons to the whole thing, but I’d have to say the biggest thing you notice about having a mustache is that 90% of your conversations with people are about your mustache. All […]

From One, Two

It can take a little while for certain kinds of feelings to catch up with me after a breakup. It’s been a few weeks now, so I suppose it is about time. We’re adults now, we’ve learned to be honest when we care about someone, and we can look upon our dreams with sad eyes […]
