Difference Between Alone and Lonely?

What a long week! I am so glad it’s Friday! Although I am beginning to become an old fart, so that doesn’t even matter. My Fridays usually consist of me going home, making myself a nice dinner, eating it in front of my TV, then relaxing for the rest of the evening and falling asleep … Continue reading

New Moon.

That is book two of the Twilight series, which I finished last week, or the week before. I don’t know anymore, the days all mesh together.
