Nostalgia arrives in a hefty omnibus edition.
It's time to let go of a few things.
Another month down, so it's time to check in on the progress I've made. The quest for financial improvement is still ongoing. I've hit a necessary wall that will force me to tighten my belt and pay down some debt, thanks to some technological disasters. Windows 10 crippled my desktop computer, I purchased a cheap … Continue reading February 2018 Overview and Assessment
What is truth? When dealing with a character like Wonder Woman -- the most famous and popular superheroine ever created -- this question is at the very heart of everything that can be explored.
