501.. Oh and one last thing …

I wouldn’t normally do this, but it’s been on my mind since the weekend.

 

Like everyone else (well, a majority of us anyway) I got to watch 501 when it premiered on the weekend.

Also, like a majority of everyone else, I wrote a reaction blog.

 

If you’ve not read it, you can do so here:

 

https://ranpotjam.com/2020/02/16/my-thoughts-on-501/

 

For those that have read it already – thank you for your thoughts and feedback. If you haven’t and wish to give feedback – I’d very much appreciate it.

 

Let me start by saying that as of this morning, I have watched 501 four times. Chances are I’ll fit in another two viewings before 502 drops Sunday afternoon. I haven’t done constant re-watch of an episode since season 3. I missed doing it.

As I have already stated in my original piece, season 4 put me off doing a re-watch. In fact, it put me off watching a single episode.

 

Naturally, after 501 went to air, my social media went off the charts, text messages flew back and forth and everyone I knew was basically sobbing their hearts out and applauding everyone involved for a job well done. I haven’t seen that since season 3 and it left me feeling very confident that something special was about to happen. I really want to believe that. Truly.

After the absolute dumpster fire of season 4 ( and I can say that now I feel, without guilt because even the cast thought over all it was shit) to see season 5 come out of the gates as strongly as it did – made me happier than I felt in a long time.

 

And then it started. All aboard the hate train!

 

Facebook, of course, was the first to kick off with its “I was left disappointed. Anyone else?” bullshit. I call it bullshit because as well all know, it’s not possible to have an amicable conversation with someone without getting shut down. I should know. I tried. On one FB forum someone commented:

 

“I hated it. But then, I’m used to being left disappointed

 

I made the mistake of politely asking what they found so disappointing… Let’s just say the response I got was the verbal equivalent of the 200 lashings BJR gave Jamie. *Shivers*

 

It was at this point I began to wonder why. Why, if a show that leaves them so disappointed, why do they even watch? What’s the point of paying for a streaming service to watch something they obviously don’t like? I will never understand that.

 

Twitter on the other hand was one part THIS IS THE BEST EPISODE EVER ON TELEVISION and one part WE’RE GOING TO DRAG RR/ROGER MAC THROUGH THE MUD OF SEASON 4, FOREVER.

 

This. Shit. Is. Exhausting.

 

Look, here’s the thing. Let season 4 go. Just let it go. Let it burn in a fire. Let it rot in a hole in the ground.

 

Stop bringing up season 4. It’s done. It’s dusted. Caps locking over twitter and yelling about it will not make them go back (through the stones * Ba-boom tish! *) and fix that shit show.

With the exception of one episode, I could only tell you a hand full of things that happened from last season and that’s probably just as well.

Do you want to know a secret? I don’t actually hate Rik. I’d never heard of him till he started working on Outlander. He plays a charater on the show. That’s about as far I am prepared to go.

What I do know:

  • He has a very loyal fan base
  • He speaks his mind
  • He’s not Sam. He never will be. If people could stop with their side by side comparisons please. They are two totally different people. It drives me nuts and really isn’t necessary
  • I’m not sure what I make of him as a person – but I guess time will tell

 

That said, I will give Rik this: He has played Roger from the books to perfection. He is exactly Roger Wakefield/ Mac/ McKenzie from the book. His attitudes, his beliefs, the way he’s been taught to view the world. Everything is Roger from the books.  I personally thought he did a corker job with the character – especially seeing what he had to work with. But that’s my opinion.

So far, his character in Se 5 seems to be heading in a positive direction and I’m hopeful that he can pull it off and really show us his skills as an actor. I’m all for second chances here. (Just quietly, I really hope that some of Sam’s influence rubs off on him. I’d like that)

 

Seeing all the differences of opinion about Roger though, made me wonder… Why is Roger not considered a man of his time…? Yet, Jamie is?

Jamie is taught from an early age that he will be the man of the house. He will be the one to provide for his family and his Wife will bare him children and do what she’s told. Then he meets Claire and everything he’s ever been taught is thrown out the window and he learns. Claire teaches him and he changes his ways.

Roger, despite being 200 years in the future at this point – is also taught the same thing. He is a man. He will provide for his family and his Wife will do as she’s told. The only difference is, Rogers main influence is Reverend Wakefield and being a man of God, especially back then, the  views on how a relationship should be was even more narrower than most- having lost his parents at a young age, it’s no surprise he is truly a product of his environment. Then he meets Bree and the exact same thing occurs. Everything he’s come to know gets turned upside down.  He learns. He’s just a lot more stubborn (and stuck in his ways) than Jamie is (or ever was) and it takes him a while longer to change … but he does change his ways and I think a lot of people have forgotten that.  It’s why I refer to DOA as “For the love of God, leave Roger alone” and TFC as “Oh dear God, Roger, not again!” – because he doesn’t manage to start to sort his shit out and get a clue until midway through ABOSAA.

So, yes, for me book Roger and TV Roger are one and the same. And I suppose, if I was going to have one criticism it would be that this. Thanks to book Roger, I envisioned him with black hair instead of brown but that’s it.

 

But twitter seems hell bent on seeing him suffer in a similar way to that of his character and, after a year of that- I’m just tired of it.

So, I’ve decided I’m not on board with the “Let’s hate Rik” bandwagon this year.  (Ironically, his stans hate my guts – but that’s another story for another day) I’m going to see what he does this season with Sophie and as I said in my last blog – hope the two of them can wow me.

Oh, and twitter, you can back off with your Sophie hate. It’s uncalled for. She’s really come into her own lately and found her stride. We can thank our dream team producers for that! So, please take a seat where Sophie is concerned. She’s going to blow us away this season. I can feel it.

It’s at this point I should be getting ready to bring up some cray-cray shit that someone on Tumblr said but, seriously? I haven’t been there, and I am not going to but on a hazmat suit just to sift through the sludge to find something that pisses me off. It’s a cess pit a majority of the time and frankly, if there’s a place where the perfection of 501 can get torn to shreds, it’s Tumblr.

So, no. Hard pass. Thanks.

(Side-note: This blog also gets cross posted too Tumblr. I am well aware that there’s every possibility that this could be read and that as a consequence I will be handed a shovel to dig my own grave)

 

I also found a lot of folks coping clap back for those opinions and being told they don’t belong or are not a true fan.

Incorrect. Having a difference of opinion does not make you less of a fan than someone that does not. Constructive criticism (as I prefer to call it) is a way of opening up discussion and sharing thoughts.

Calling someone out because you don’t agree with that person’s opinion, calling them a lesser of a fan or a hater? That’s not only having a negative opinion – it also makes you an asshole.

So, there’s that.

 

That said, I’m hoping Se 5 will bring us together again. This fandom fell apart at the end of Se 4 and we’ve never really come back from it. Don’t get wrong, we’re stronger than we were, say, 6 months ago -but there’s a lot of damage that needs to be repaired and I think Se 5 is just the tonic we need to help us do that.

 

Thanks for reading,

My Thoughts on 501.

My thoughts on 501:

 

I’ve watched 501 twice.

The first time was yesterday afternoon. I was such a mess afterwards I could hardly think straight. So, there was no way I was going to be able to string to sentences together -let alone construct a coherent blog about the episode that wasn’t watermarked of virtual tears.

 

Now, before I go ahead (and be warned. This will contain spoilers. The episode has been officially dropped by Starz – Which gives everyone the green light to discuss the episode), I need to say I’m sorry.

 

I’m sorry I misheard the line, OK? I’m sorry I thought Germain said “Grand-Pere said you have hairy tits” when, in fact, he didn’t. What he said was “Grand-Pere said you have hairy ticks!” (Which is why, I hate to say, it took me quite a bit of time to figure out that Roger said “Your Father thinks I’m a Heretic”)

 

Naturally, when I initially made the tweet, I didn’t realise how wrong I was.

 

  • I misheard the line
  • I spelled Germain with an E. Thus, turning Fersaili’s child from a Boy into a Girl
  • And, of course, I got the spelling of Grandfather wrong, didn’t I? Because grammar and spelling mistakes… Why stop at one? … Am I right?

 

The Irony of this whole thing was that it’s usually me that is telling everyone else what was said. Either way, it gave everyone a good laugh and that’s all that matters.

 

Now……

 

Can we talk the opening credits for a second?

I don’t mind the orchestral arrangement if I’m being perfectly honest. It’s an interesting twist. I could really get used to it.

Seeing Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser with his back to the camera takes my breath away. Every. Damn. Time. The broadness of his shoulders and that coat need all the awards for their efforts alone.

And just quietly, seeing my two-favourite people with the word Producer next to their name… makes my heart soar. I’m so damn proud of them and how far they’ve come.

 

My only criticism? That shot of Claire running in the muddied dress and all you see are her feet… from season 1? We need to be rid of that now. It’s no longer relevant. It’s been in the opening credits every season and frankly, it’s time to let it go. Truly. It doesn’t fit in anywhere anymore. I mean, what’s wrong with a quick peek at Adso? We know he’s part of the season so why not add him into the credits?

Just a thought.

 

First off, I’m going to preface this with the fact that I have gone into this season with no expectations whatsoever. I’m not carrying over any resentment or bitterness that was the train wreck of season 4. The writing was weak. We all know this. Thus, I believe that’s what made certain characters unlikeable and rather less than noteworthy.

 

Secondly, I’m also going to tell you that this Droughlander – I deliberately did not do a re- watch. Not a single episode. At all.

 

I know, I know. You’re all thinking I’ve lost my marbles and gone bat-shit bonkers, but I’ll have you know there’s a method to my madness. After the shit show that was last season, I’d lost all hope of the show redeeming itself for season 5. I was left angry at the choices made and I felt that overall, season 4 was lacking. So much lacking. There was no room for character development. A lot of what we’d hoped to see was pushed to the wayside and forgotten about. The only thing I will say is this. Given how little the cast had to work with last season, everyone bought their A game to the table and did a remarkable job.

The sets were great and even the costumes were amazing but nothing after season 4 made me even want to look at anything Outlander related – let alone sit through a re-watch.

 

Then Sam and Caitriona were announced to become producers for the new season – and I… well I began to hope.

 

It was at this point I decided to continue with my no re-watch policy. I wanted to approach season 5 with excitement. I wanted to feel like I did when I was waiting with bated breath for season 3 and well may I say – I’m so glad I did because I was excited, and I was happy, and I was emotional, and it was perfect.

 

Now we come to the nitty gritty of this blog. I’m well aware that there will be folks who will not agree with me here – and that’s OK. Different strokes for different folks as they say. I’d like an opinion if you care to have one – but please, leave your hatred and vitriol at the door.

So, without further ado – I give you my thoughts

 

 First. What I think of Roger and Bree.

 

(A/N I feel I need to say this and get this off my chest before I continue. My apologies if this isn’t your thing, but I just need to get it out there)

 

As previously mentioned, I am not carrying over anything from the 4th season.

 

So, too me this season, they are completely new. I’ve never met them (so to speak.) I’m willing to give them a chance and see if they can grow on me. I’m also curious to see what Sophie and Rik can do with their characters story line moving forward. Obviously, the McKenzie’s (because we’ve all read the books, right?) they have a hard road ahead as they get used to living 200 years in the past, finding their feet as newlyweds and as new parents. (It’s at this point I wish to point out that when I say I am not carrying over anything from last season – it does not mean I have forgot it. I am simply choosing not to tarnish my personal Season 5 experience with bad writing and character development from last season) Add to this, Roger, at this point has no real trade or skill and no real way to provide for his family. His relationship with his Father -In -Law isn’t exactly off to a good start either so you know, Roger’s got his work cut out for him.

As for Bree? Well…. How to put this as delicately as possible… She’s been through a lot. And I mean a lot. So, one of the things I’ll be interested to see how the writers will/ have handled that particular situation.

I want to see on screen how they struggle with that. How it affects their relationship and how, as Husband and Wife they work through it together.

On a positive note – I am very much looking forward to Brianna finally becoming ‘her Fathers Daughter’ and everyone on the Ridge showing her all the damn respect she so rightfully deserves.

So yes, I’m hopeful Rik and Sophie bring their A game this season and with, what I hear, stronger writing (I heard they hired a new writer and this one was already an avid fan of both the books and TV show) I’m hoping they can wow me. I really want them to wow me. Is it too soon to ask that they can do that? I hope not.

 

Second: What I liked about 501

 

  • The Marriage of Roger and Bree. Everything about this scene was lovely.
  • Jamie and Claire being so proud of their baby girl (MY HEART GUYS!)
  • The flashback to Jamie and Claire’s wedding made me cry
  • The looks between Ma and Da Fraser as their Daughter got Married (Do not @ me!)
  • Hello Jamie at 50 with the dry witty humour. I’ve waited such a long time for you, and you did not disappoint
  • Lord John sitting alone on a log while everybody else was busy getting busy – made me laugh out-loud  and call him “Lord John No Friends” for the rest of the episode
  • Marsali is the Queen of the tongue twisters
  • FREAKY FRASER SEX GETTING INTERUPTED BY THEIR GRANDSON WITH PERFECT TIMING? YES! HOLY GOD I NEEDED THAT AND THEY DELIVERED
  • The Music. Ugh! Why must Bear McCreary make leak my bodyweight in fluid out of my eyeballs like that? Huh? Why? Yet again his musical score is what makes this show and you cannot tell me otherwise
  • Roger telling Aunt Jocasta where she can stick her money. I’m happy they did this actually. I liked this part of the book and I was happy to see it translated well.
  • Jamie Frasers face when he hears his Daughter say “Je Suis Prest” Please give Sams eyes a standing ovation. They deserve it. Honest.
  • I want Germain to be my friend. He’s the GOAT
  • JAMIE FRASER IN HIS FAMILY TARTAN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER 20 YEARS AND HE LOOKED MAGNIFICENT! I WILL CAPS LOCK THIS MOMENT FOREVER AND IF YOU DID NOT GET DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND RECITE YOUR VOW WORD FOR WORD – WHO EVEN ARE YOU AND WHY ARE YOU HERE? I SOBBED! DO YOU HEAR ME? SOBBED AND I DON’T EVEN CARE BECAUSE THAT SCENE WAS EVERYTHING!!
  • Lizzy flirting was all kinda cute really
  • Jamie just out there eating an apple while he pretending, he not be know that Lizzy is flirting.
  • The final scene with Jamie and Murtagh. It tore my guts out and I lost it completely.
  • (Even as I type this, I am getting emotional) Also, Sam Heughan, again, needs all the awards for this. “Go. Please… Be hard to find” … will be burnt into my brain forever.

 

  

Third: What I didn’t like about 501

 

  • I got angry at our favourite Gov’ner. I didn’t want to, but I did.
  • Sometimes Roger says stupid things like “Maybe we can do this again when we go back, and I’ll be more prepared” Roger should be banned from saying stupid things. It never bodes well
  • There was not enough Fersali in my eyeballs. There needs to be more.
  • The way Bree found out about Bonnet.
  • It irked me a little that she didn’t tell Claire straight away
  • The fact that, after having watched all the live streams and the panels and hearing their stories about all the foods and drinks being real – I ruined my own viewing experience twice by wondering things like “Is that Sassenach Whisky in those glasses? How many slices of cake did they eat? How many times did they have to roast that pig? Does any of this stuff keep? What do they do with the leftovers? Does anything get taken home after a shoot?” … *Sigh* Why am I like this?!
  • Did anyone else look at the bricks and things laying about and wonder if they were just a little too modern for the time period? No, just me then? OK

 

Overall, there wasn’t that much to dislike about 501. For me it ticked all the right boxes and I, for one am VERRA excited for this season and what’s to come. I think the Regulators story line is a good addition and I’m curious (if a little concerned) as to what will play out. Also, Duncan Innes. He was mentioned but…. Did we actually see him? I don’t think so. So again, another story line that has me curious.

 

I’m looking forward to next week!

 

Outlander is back baby! Better, Bigger and Stronger than ever!

 

Bring on 502!

This Blog Should Have Another Title But….

Would it be alright if I labelled todays blog “The Day Sam Heughan Killed the Internet?” because honestly, that’s exactly what he’s done. Unashamedly and without a single ounce of permission.

 

If you’re new here (Hi!) and have no Idea what I’m talking about – then go and look at my twitter feed or go here:

 

https://noblemanmagazine.com/product/issue-no-12sam-rockwell-sam-heughan/

 

 

It’s OK. I’ll wait. I’ll give you time to catch your breath.

 

Not going to lie. This is, hands down, the most incredible photoshoot he’s ever done. The guys that did this for Nobleman Mag did an exquisite job and it left a certain fandom in a puddle on the floor. My only hope is that they don’t run out of copies. I can’t afford one right now and I really want one. (Can you wait at least two weeks? Please?)

 

Right. Now to other news.

 

I think I’ve mentioned more than once that I am a human science experiment. And now is a good time to give you all an update on that.

 

 

For those playing at home things are actually getting better. Slowly. There was a time where I seriously began to wonder if everything, I was doing was actually going to get me anywhere. For the longest time It always felt for every step forward – there were 19 steps backwards.

That was until towards the end of last year. At the time I was seeing an Osteopath, a neurologist, a physiotherapist and a dental surgeon. There was a lot going on.  I was (and still am) working 3 days a week (part time) and not being able to make as much money as I used to – it was straining the hip pocket, so something had to be done.

At the time, my Aunt was visiting from Perth, Western Australia. She was staying with my Father for a period of 7 weeks – while they went on an over seas trip together.

 

Upon their return, my Aunts sciatica was playing up and, after some searching-  found a chiropractor just down the road from my Father’s house – so, she went to try them out. After two sessions her sciatica was all but gone.

Suffice to say, I was convinced enough. After all, I had thrown everything else at Me and it wasn’t really getting anywhere.

 

My first session left me able to move in ways I hadn’t been able to since March 2016.

 

(Interesting observation: They also claimed my jaw pulled to the right. Much like my Osteopath said it did. Most people comment and say the right-hand side of my face appears slightly droopy and my jaw pulls that way. The only person who says it doesn’t – is my Dental Surgeon. Go figure)

 

So, as a result I’ve been able to drop the Osteopath and the Neurologist. I’ve stopped taking meds (I was on Lyrica 150mg x 2 a day) and apart from a fluid retention tablet (for other reasons) I’m off all other medications moving forward.

 

I’ve been seeing these guys for a few months now and things are genuinely improving. (if you live local you can check them out here  http://www.knoxchiropractic.com.au/ ) They’ve worked wonders for me I can’t speak highly enough of them.

 

As well as this, I have a new Physiotherapist. She’s really nice. A former Olympic Swimmer.  She’s taken over from my previous PT who left Active EP just before Christmas last year. Her focus with me is core and strength. This is going really well. (Between this and MPC – I’m gaining more of my mobility and strength back every single day. I’ve written blogs about MPC before. Just scroll through my entries and see for yourself)

 

So yes, things are finally getting somewhere. I still have to find a way to shift my jaw back into its correct positioning – but something is bound to happen soon.

 

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Ceej.

 

PS These links are not in any way a promo. Simply wanted to add them here to show you what I was talking about ^_^

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, I didn’t write anything today ….

Have you ever struggled to write anything?

 

Have you ever found yourself sitting for hours in front of your computer screen completely stumped how to start something?

 

Take this blog for example. I have struggled since I woke up this morning to write anything even remotely decent.

 

In fact, I have done everything but write anything remotely decent.

 

For example:

 

  • I made a half ass attempt at a hearty breakfast … and failed for two reasons.
  • There was a massive long hair in it that belonged to neither my Husband or myself or my cats that was equal parts disgusting and terrifying.
  • I started Aunty Flow and she makes me hate everything and everyone and every-what and every-who and every-fucking-wotsit anyway and well, guess what? I just had to hate on my muesli, didn’t I? Of course, I did! Did I eat it? No! Why? Because! That’s why!

 

 

  • I was the dumbass with the log in situation.

 

So, this year MPC gave their website a glow up and it turned out you had to re-create your profile to log in. It took me two hours to work this out! TWO GODDAM HOURS?! Why am I so dumb? Why? It was so obvious after I finished it all. I wasted two hours of my life being a git! Ugh!

 

  • I got lost inside the Twittersphere…

 

 

Yeah, you know, you be known it. I see you. I see you nodding your head and trying NOT to give me THAT look.  Twitter. The one place you love to hate and hate to love. It’s where your obsession can either grow and flourish like a garden and be green and lush and full life, love and promise … or it can set its own ass on fire after lighting one fart to many and turning into a dumpster fire of epic proportions.

Today was reasonable.

 

I read some fic and both of them tore my guts out. (Much love too you both my wonderful fic goddesses. You know who you are x)

I rolled my eyes at a troll. Even after a gazillionty blocks and being shouted at by everyone in the fandom for being a prize-winning dick – they still found it necessary to extort money from people by means to their own ends and that’s a truly shitty thing to do

I read an interview which was bullshit.

I got bowled over by a sea of dark velvet hues. That blended in beautifully with the rich red carpet at an event in LA (I think)

 

WhatsApp kept me entertained

 

I love my girls in my group chat. Truly I do! They make me laugh with their silliness and carry on and I hope one day to meet them all.  (Yes, I am working on a passport!) I must admit I am worried though. I wonder what they’ll think of me. The wonky, backwards, broken Aussie – who can’t go anywhere without her trusty pink walking cane Edna. I hope they won’t be disappointed.

 

  • Watched Season 1 of Fleabag

 

After taking ages to work out how to get Amazon Prime to work on our smart TV – Hubby and I finally sat down and watched Se1 of Fleabag. While I had seen Se1 before, Hubby had not. So, we did that. Enjoyed it muchly. We’re about to start Se 2 soon. So, yay that.

 

 

  • Spent money on the Office Works online store.

 

When work gives you a $100 gift card – you spend it. And I did. On everything I’m going to need for the first few months of MPC 2020. It’s all going to get delivered on Tuesday 4th Feb.

 

Looked up flights to Brisbane to visit my Bestie in March

 

Flights are expensive fuckers. That is all.

 

 

And there you have it. Why I have written absolutely nothing of consequence all day. Nothing decent.

Christ, I still need to write a short story on a bizarre piece of furniture I’ve called Norm.

 

Might leave that till Tuesday, I think.

 

Ceej

 

 

 

 

The Struggle is Real

Tuesday, 9:30am

 

I’m sitting here trying desperately to find something to blog about.

 

It’s the worst feeling if I’m honest. Knowing I’ve promised myself to keep to a weekly posting schedule – despite having nothing happen over the course of that week – to give me anything to write about.

 

By my side sits my iPhone 11. The Red Dressed Lady. Well, she will be once the case I ordered six days ago from China ships out.

 

That said, given the nature of what’s happening over there – with the spread of the Coronavirus – I suspect that it’ll be shipped after the quarantine has lifted or, if not, I shall simply need to look at other alternatives because I’ll never see that phone case for as long as I live.

(Which is fine btw. Really don’t want a package full of virus thank you very much!)

 

So, my letters to people is going well. Another three shall be posted this weekend – bringing the total to eight so far. I’m communicating with one person via email – which I don’t mind doing. It’s a novelty and bit of fun

 

I’m hoping that by writing letters, it’ll help with my blogging situation.  I mean, as in, keeping regular practise.

 

So far, I’m struggling to piece anything of significance together and it does frustrate me.

 

I mean, there’s always Outlander fandom stuff. There is always stuff going on there – but let’s be honest – everyone else writes about fandom stuff and they write about it better than I ever could.

And besides, the only thing I want to say there is – WE’VE GOT 2.5 WEEKS LEFT TILL SEASON 5 … WHERE IS THE SEASONS PASS ITUNES?? GOD DAMN IT!!

 

*Ahem*

 

Where was I?

 

Oh. That’s right. Here. Right here. Blogging about nothing.

 

Goodo. Excellent.

 

At least I’ve written something today… and that’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

And So It Came To Pass

That I looked at the time and said  “Shit me! I better get my ass into gear and write a blog!”

 

So, here I am …. Trying. Honestly.

 

At the moment I am writing letters to people. It’s been a lot of fun. I’m enjoying it and finding it easier to write with each letter. So hopefully, that’ll help with this.

 

There’s not really much to cover this week. So, I’ll give you a run down in a series of dot points

 

  • Sam and Caitriona have killed us all 84,000 times over.
  • I’ve discovered I’m not muted and the Universe is my friend
  • I’ve worked lates this last week and its been the worst ever. I got told to either Fuck Off, Fuck You or Go Fuck Yourself so many times .. I am starting to wonder if i am a truly horrible person
  • Toothpaste is not my friend. ( Long story. Next weeks blog for sure)
  • More Dr’s apts
  • Fluid Retention tablets are a thing now. Woo. ( Again, another blog for next week)
  • I’ve lost 4.1kgs since Jan 01.

 

And that’s about it

 

This blog isn’t really anything. It’s simply to keep me to a posting schedule and accountable

 

Thanks for reading anyway,
