The US birthrate has dropped again, for the sixth straight year to be exact. But is that really a shocker? We all know that the economic climate in the United States has been volatile for quite some time, so I don't find this information to be all that staggering. What is interesting, though, is that… Continue reading No shocker here: There were more deaths than there were births in 2020
Dylan and I are playing Darts against one another on our iPhones tonight. Is this what our world has come to? Either way, we’re making the most of what we’ve got so, virtual date nights it is!! .....................
2020 could be a textbook of its own. Everyday is an accumulation of more historical events, and it makes me sick watching the evening news. The leader of our country incites violence and division. He defends white supremacy and encourages neo-facism. People of color are being gunned down in the streets by those sworn in… Continue reading Sincerely, A Sad American
It’s been a few days! Long days, it feels like. But in another sense, it also FLEW BY. I know some people are already taking down their decorations and that part of the aftermath of Christmas makes me sad. I’m not ready to let go of the joy that Christmas time brings me.

I'm feeling stressed tonight. I haven't worked at my full-time job since April... Mainly in part because I spent two months of that time working at a coronavirus testing site, but I've been home on unemployment since the last week in June because my company's volume is down 60% and there is not enough work… Continue reading Pandemic Problems
I made it home to my family Wednesday afternoon! I appreciate all of your guys’ encouragement and kind thoughts. Writing was truly the most therapeutic thing I had while away from my family for the last six weeks. That aspect of this craft is the reason why I made this page and why my love… Continue reading I’m home!!
Today I am feeling soooo thankful! So as I've mentioned before, my National Guard unit was activated to run a Coronavirus testing site for the last month and a half, and today I have finished the final step towards going home besides out-processing! So when we came onto this mission, we were told at the… Continue reading The Home Stretch
UPDATE 🙂 I've been gone from home since May 12th working at a Coronavirus testing site with my Army National Guard unit. Of the five years I've been enlisted in the military, this was the first time we had ever been called to duty. I'm thankful for that now since I've got a family. My… Continue reading 11 Days
