I’m going to attempt to do what no person in their right mind has ever dared attempt. People will no longer question my sanity, for there will be no denying the sheer irresponsibility of what I shall perform for you today. Yes folks, step right up for the amazing, death-defying act of combing both the Weekly Writing Challenge (some sort of cliffhanger blog), the Zero to Hero Challenge (changing your blog’s theme), and….
It’s almost too unreal…
Many have tried, but none have lived through it…..

I recently learned what a “browser” is, but much like my 17-year-old figure, it was not retained. Yes, dear readers… I am technologically challenged.
So with that said, I am amazed I have made it this far. Last year, I purchased a theme and started designing my blog. To this day, I still haven’t been able to figure out 90% of the features. Many alcoholic beverages were consumed, many cigarettes smoked, many pillows thrown against the wall, and then carefully picked up and placed gently on the couch again. Frustrating doesn’t cover it. I have come to the realization, that I need to change my theme, with the impending expiration date approaching.
While taking a shower last night, where I seriously get all of my best ideas, it hit me……
