I woke up early today with only three hours sleep, so eventually after 4am I crawl back in bed and fall asleep for about 40 minutes. That is when I started dreaming. I was in a weird old office building, but it was homier than that. There were rooms with little couches, tv areas, etc. … Continue reading A dark office building (dreams)

I just woke up from a horrible dream. Not a zombie, nightmare infested dream but one that could happen. We were at an older house, one that had fallen into a lot of disrepair. It belonged to an old lady who I never saw the face of, but we could hear in the background freaking … Continue reading Decrepit Building

I am lucky now, I am working in Arlington so its only a 30 minute ride each direction. The audit … Continue reading Battling Stress

At some point we were dropped off on a rather steep hill that was undergoing … Continue reading Long and Short Night
