I haven't really been around Spark for a little while. That's certain. A lot of things have happened, and Spark seemed to fall by the wayside. But I would sometimes come back just for this team, because I loved the people I had met here and t... Read more

I haven't been around Spark for quite a while...of course, I've been dropping in to do the exact bare minimum with my leadership position in CoHP, but I haven't really be *there* for anyone or even myself. I've been chalking it up to being extr... Read more

Just a quick blurb... Today I walked for a full hour. It was tough, since I'm not used to it, and I almost gave up at the halfway mark. But I kept going by giving myself a pep talk. No, really. I just kept telling myself that it wasn't ... Read more
