“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.”

The high-stress, change-in-a-flash, perpetual-deadline type profession is generally not a suitable one for someone who requires 50 75 100 mg of SSRIs to get through the day.

Alas, here I am, living out my everloving dream, falling asleep to scanner chatter, and attempting wildly ambitious home improvement projects.
