Formulas, Breaks, and Other Mental Battles

Cross-posted on Joyful Miles to save time. ;) Well, I did it. Something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time but held off because A.) it’d be a waste of money seeing as how I’m not ready and I lack the talent, B.) I’d most likely flake and quit, just like I’ve done [...]
