But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep.

Sober Addicts Make the Best Students!

Sober Addicts Make the Best Students...    I bet you’re saying, “You’re kidding me right?” and I’d say, “No I’m not!” It’s true, a sober addict makes the best student! Why you’re asking? Well… there are many reasons, but I’m going to highlight a few for you. You could say we know everything about everything already. Or that could just be confidence; either way it works. We’ve taken a lot of tests… usually. And oh, don’t forget that chemistry class should be an easy one for us, and not to boot math and counting should be a breeze! So here’s...

A New Perspective on Boredom–Maybe it’s not all bad?

Many have said that boredom will kill you, or only time will tell. I think a lot have heard sayings like this.
