Been there, done that (BTDT) is a phrase often heard (and often joined with “Got the T-shirt”).

30 days to serenity

September has been a month where things came to a head for me. I don’t function well when I’m tired. Ever since childhood, I’ve always gotten cranky when tired. After a weekend of little sleep, I got cranky at work last Monday, and the person I was cranky with (a regular co-worker) took it so […]
