    Something Important....

    So I've tried to be optimistic as of late, even when it felt like I was being put through a food processor. I've been on a diet and exercising frequently, and I've lost some weight. It's a start, but a good one. I smile and have been more nagging than usual, hoping something will...

    Missing Some Kind of "Human" Programming
