Tawn’s Best Laid Plans

Day 8: Five Current Goals As you can probably tell, I generally don’t do well with goals. I can stick to a schedule if I really have to, but I’m usually a disorganized mess racing against the clock to finish my work.  I've come to the sad conclusion that I'm addicted to the adrenaline rush which, … Continue reading Tawn’s Best Laid Plans

Pride and Sloth… wait, what?

Guest Post: Leaving the Dog (and the Blog) Park (via Snoring Dog Studio)
