If I’m being completely honest: I was totally uninspired and bored. I wasn’t in love with the layout, my content…ANYTHING. So, I put it off to the side and ignored it along with all of the other problems I had piling up.

A few weeks ago, I was looking at my credit card statement and noticed I was still paying for a subscription to Audible.

But, that’s not the overwhelming tragedy to me. The real tragedy is what I am reading in the aftermath of his death. Reports are saying that he was found in his bathroom, alone in his boxer shorts, with a needle stuck in his arm. It’s this last detail that has really made me sick; not because it happened, but because I know about it.
