I’d like to say that I’ve managed well since March, but if my lack of posts are any indication, I would be lying. A lot of negative things have happened to me, and despite my attitude that nothing was going to keep me down for too long, I stayed “down” far longer than I would have imagined.

It seems my weekends have two repeatable themes. Do nothing but sit on the couch all day and night, or find myself at a concert. This weekend I managed to do both pretty flawlessly.
