This week

This week.


Not fun.

And it’s only Thursday, give me a break.

Because of that and because I’m listening to my music playlist that’s actually named ‘Eclectic Stuff’ and I’m not in the least bit tired, I’m going to blog 100 things  (originally it was 50 but hey, we all need a bit of cheering up, right?) that are still great.

One Comment:

  1. Thank you for this. It was a nice reminder and it also made me look back through old files and find a list very similar to this that a group of Talons made almost three years ago. “Humanity is good. Some people are terrible and broken, but humanity is good. I believe that.” – Hank Green.
