Vote For Your Brain

Vote For Your Brain I miss those days when a bagel and cream cheese was a healthy food option — Man, I miss a bagel and cream cheese!–  I miss Teddy Grahams and Cheezits.  I miss not having to read the food label for every item outside the produce aisle. I miss the freedom of […]

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is power I’ve been journaling since I was 13-years old. That’s about 32  years’ worth of journal-writing that says almost nothing. I’m not judging really. I’m just saying.
