When I was a kid, I was afraid that if the saying was true, “you are what you eat” that I might turn into chips and a bowl of salsa. I was young and impressionable, still eat chips and salsa like someone is trying to steal it from me AND I have yet to turn into chips and salsa. Sometimes, being something so simple might be a good thing.
This brings me to this Library. I do believe that we are what we consume; books, blogs, museums, television, gifs movies, erotica, etc. So that I can create a timeline of what I’m consuming, I am going to use this page and subsequently linked blog posts to round up where my attention has been focused.
My goal as a human:
Share, create, and enjoy life’s amazing experiences.
Hopefully that which I consume in my life’s library will help me accomplish these goals. Here’s some stuff I’d like to share.
