So I Was Cleaning Out My Drive…

how-the-grinch-stole-christmas-4_3So I was cleaning out my Google Drive the other day and came across this gem. I have no idea how old it is, but I’m glad I kept it.

I rarely go anywhere during summers unless the outing is scheduled and necessary (like mountain bike practice). It’s not that I dislike hanging out with people (I like that a lot), it just doesn’t occur to me. If I can spend my time writing, isn’t that more productive than going for a hike or out for coffee?
