~ Lifebook #19 ~ Like many, I consume a lot of media. Be it social media, websites, research, daily & weekly podcasts, television, music, books and comic books -- altogether it's too much. Something's got to give because I need my own damn attention back. I need my focus. I need to make a change, … Continue reading Resolution: Regain and Retain Attention
~ Lifebook #18 ~ So I exited 2017/entered 2018 in a rather foul mood and before turning in for the evening (which was not long after midnight because apparently I'm an old man), I wrote this rather sour New Year's Resolution.
