My struggle with Insomnia

My struggle with Insomnia

August 7, 2018personal thoughts No Comments In this blog post, I 'll talk about something personal that I’ve been going through for the past 10 months: insomnia.

The year in review

The year in review

February 8, 2018News No Comments Usually, “year in review” posts are done in December and January. I’m posting mine in February because I shirk conventions. Last year, I was a bit disappointed with myself for only completing one project, “The Lost Falcon.” Part of the problem is my laziness, caused by anxiety. Anxiety plays a large part in all of [...]

Between my four week vacation, I've taken freelance jobs where I've had to travel and work long hours...As a result, I kind of feel exhausted.

Back from vacation
