While the Feeling’s Still Fresh: A Letter to Those Who Wrote-In Harambe

I took this photo and meant to post it yesterday morning to encourage people to vote. I didn’t do that and now I wish I did. Last night, I thought that enough of my peers would cast their votes to continue moving us forward. I believed in our generation, and I believed in my friends, colleagues, and everyone who showed me their progressive and inclusive values. I believed in you. I also believed that you cared about your community. I thought that you would take the time to read up on what was happening in your own state, in your own city, in your own backyard.

Oh, hi! Look what’s empty again. I’ve got to stop building these things – blogs. I’m back on WordPress, self-hosted with A Small Orange. Whoop!

SS also doesn’t have a file manager, so my photos are just floating in the middle of Nowhere, Internet. This move was a lot harder than I thought it would be; thanks Squarespace. So, my posts are literally empty, just words. I may just delete all of the picture heavy stuff, random posts that I posted just to have something posted, and other stuff that I don’t care to have online anymore. At any rate, here’s to new beginnings, I guess. Welcome to an all new, back to basics and putting my life in a blog. Launch: We’re here!

Welcome everyone! This is the new place for my musings, ramblings, hodgepodge of crazy ideas, and all that I love and will share with all of you. For everyone who followed ‘The Book of Shayne,’ thanks for coming to my new home. To those who are new, welcome to my life! Can you tell with all of these exclamation marks how excited I am?!!!?!!!
