I guess what I’m saying is that it’d be nice to not work myself to death trying to survive, I guess.

Change is always difficult, but sometimes it's well worth the discomfort.

This is a server for anyone, but particularly for those of us in the US Midwest that want to get away from the birdsite or to avoid the zucksuck. Have fun, don’t be a dick, and remember to eat the rich!
