Ask The BuilderAsk The Builder After all a minimum of now I haven’t got to carry a spare battery with me like it was with the previous bold since I’m certain this one will last me for the complete day. Downspouts are linked to the gutters and carry the water down to ground level. In […]
The first time I did heroin I got so high I could barely walk. I was 25. I knew, unequivocally, that everything else I’d done up to that point, whether alcohol, weed, cocaine or benzos, was all a waste of time. Heroin was what I’d been waiting for my entire life. I didn’t inject it […]

Yesterday was my last night with the boys as I am leaving for the children’s home today. I find it funny the moment I told Heena I was leaving, […]
Two new plants arrived in the mail this week–a Crandall Currant and a Goumi. I got them into the ground the same day, but they’re very much sticks-in-the-ground at this point.

This was my first essay of the year and my first Longread! I was inspired by how passionate everyone around me was about this interview. I had to watch it. I’ve cleaned the post up and I hope it is more enduring. If you have never met him, then meet Soulja Boy, self-professed rap legend: Soulja Boy and Donald Trump were the little kid […]
