The Upside Of Unemployment

I have been quite silent as of late, in case you haven’t noticed. I’m a bit mad with myself over it, as I was reaching a good stride with regular posting. I have been going through a small crisis, you see, that has pulled me away from almost everything. Shortly before I posted my plea…
