Sorry for my absence for the past 2 years

I've not written a blog for close to 2 years, due to some comments I had gotten stuck on a loop in my brain during mental health month the other year regarding my one blog publication.

There was a disturbance in the force last night

  Last night we went to see The Last Jedi, Episode 8 in Star Wars. Yes, I'm kind of a Star Wars geek. Just ask Wicket W.

I have multiple Wicket… Continue reading There was a disturbance in the force last night
