I am quite possibly the worst blogger in all of history. I think I'll put that on a tee shirt. Better yet, I hope my future kids give me one of those ridiculous mugs with "#1 Worst Blogger in History" on it. It'll just be so fitting. But anyway. Here I am. Albeit, a little … Continue reading Wow, I suck.
Alright, alright, alright. I have to update you very very quickly on turkey. (I only say quickly because I'm finally moving all of my euro photos to a hard drive and have to get this shit posted before then.)

I live on an island off the coast of Alaska. For the last three weeks, the clouds have made it their mission to completely destroy any chance I had of spending the spring outside.
