    Tall Tales From Youth

    I've had high school friends who can't reconcile their teen selves with whom they are striving to be today. Maybe that's Joe. Or maybe he and those others are trying to forget those mullet haircuts. 😄

    The ‘Currently’ Most Recognized Surf Song?

    I'm a bad person

    Isolating yourself, IMO, is probably a defensive posture to being frustrated or angry with your situation. I find that the best way to manage through frustration is with humor, and it's hard to find humor by yourself. Venturing out with an objective to share some humor will likely be more...
