How was your week, friends? Kenny and the boys were out of town all week so I enjoyed those pleasures specific to having a space to yourself, namely eating all the fancy snacks yourself and keeping things very, very clean. 😉  I also saw a friend’s art installation, co-worked with buddies, and got to catch up with my BFF who was in town for a hot minute!

Do you miss the good ol’ days of the internet? Before all the listicles and how-tos, when people shared their stories and lives? You need to add Running Away From Home to your RSS feeds, my dudes.

Yes! How to exercise out of self-love, not due to fat-shaming.

Sad but true: Love is not enough.
Love does not equal compatibility. Just because you fall in love with someone doesn’t necessarily mean they’re a good partner for you to be with over the long term. Love is an emotional process; compatibility is a logical process. And the two don’t bleed into one another very well.
