First, I have to apologize for my absence. It wasn’t planned, but you know how sometimes you just don’t feel like blogging? Even though you have things to say? That was me this month, and I decided to honor those feelings. Sure, a good blogger posts consistently. But a good blogger also cares more about quality than quantity, so I chose not to post for the sake of posting. But now I’m back with lots to talk about, including my recent birthday.
