Guys. I was so excited to start a new blog (which I did - and it's whatever, but I've decided that samfindsfaith.com is my blogging home and I'm back here now) and rant all the time about my messed up imperfect life, and I suck at that too! One post in, and its already like… Continue reading okay, so sometimes I suck at being a blogger.
