    Today'S The Day

    After 12 years of an emotionless marriage, amongst some other types of abuse, I'm moving out. I sign my lease today. It's amazing how the person that was suppose to love and cherish you forever is the one that hurts you the worst. Hardest thing I've ever done, I believe it's...
