The Origin of Addiction

I have three godsons. Two twin boys that are 16 years old and one older, grown ass kid that’s 19. If you want to get them to do something. ANYTHING. Just say these three words: Xbox Live Points.

Monday’s Motivation

Put It Behind You   You know what? Last week was brutal. Many things that could go wrong did and it left me a little wiped out over the weekend.
