The last question I’ll pose to you this week in the form of a song? The same question I ask of my opposition when I conquer yet another obstacle meant to hinder me.

Well, The Walking Dead Season 9 Mid-Season Finale has come and gone, and as usual, I enjoyed it. There was a definite horror film feel to the directing of this one and as the storm began to roll in, night began to fall, and the fog began to thicken, so did the suspense.

…what we’d all look like if we wore our emotional/psychological scars on our flesh? It’s funny how people focus so much on “fixing” their physical issues when it’s their mental issues that make them feel and act out negatively. Think about it. Where do you think the negative perception of
