As I mentioned in my post last week, I’m officially leaving my job. I’m optimistic about our financial situation in this change, but the day-to-day change will be a larger concern. I’ll be moving from a structured life, with a job setting guard rails and times to be at specific places into an unknown schedule […]
Are you a morning person? Chances are you’re not. Some reports say roughly 20% of people consider themselves “morning people” or “night people” – with the remaining 80% being somewhere in the middle.

What’s this site all about anyway? Well, if you want to know that, you’re better off reading the about page, which goes into who I am (hi! I’m Adam!) and why I’m writing about these topics.
