Random ramblings

This post is not going to do well. I know for a fact it won’t, simply because it’ll have no direction in any way, shape, or form. Or maybe it will and it’ll surprise us all. Who knows? Just keep your expectations low for this one, folks, because today, we’re just having a little get […]
