Storytime with Alex: Roommate Woes

Standard

If you’ve been paying attention to the blog the last week or so, you’ll notice that Amanda and I have started a M/W/F schedule with our posts. You also may have noticed (I doubt it) that I didn’t put one up yesterday. That is because I felt like death. Why did I feel like death, you ask (you didn’t)? I’ll tell you.

Who chooses to write 15 pages for funsies?) because procrastination is something I’m extremely good at. Hell, I’ll start doing chores around the house if it means putting off something school related. It’s a strange logic, but I can’t help it. Continue reading
