This season has been kind of intense. I work retail, and this particular November and December has been, frankly, insane. The hours are all over the place, and I simply haven't had the time to focus on this blog in the way I'd like. And while I do enjoy writing here, I just can't justify... Continue Reading →
So, I’m working on an updated and revised version of my Ranger class right now. I can’t make any promises as to when it will arrive. Unlike last time, I’m not working toward a deadline. I’m just going to work on it when I can (this season is hell on my free time) until I’m... Continue Reading →
