    1. I'm glad you liked it and thanks for sticking around! I really suck at maintaining this blog, don't I? :\ Life has been pretty hectic and difficult for the past year and I've found myself pulled in many different directions (especially in spiritual matters!) at once so it has been pretty overwhelming. I'll probably post about that at least. :)
