An Explanation of Sorts

Hi, hello, it’s been a hot second since I actually touched this blog in a meaningful way. I wish I had a solid explanation, but really, blogging has just been hard for me lately. In an attempt to justify an absence from reviewing, I will say these things: I took an off-roll (no course) last […]
