So for a long time I have been part of the LOST “fandom”. I don’t really do a lot with it – I post some at The Fuselage, but rarely. I go to LOST Weekend (formerly Destination: LA) and this is the 3rd of 4 years I made it out. This was another fun year! [...]

From the depths

March 25, 2009

Yes, I know I haven’t posted a single entry since October. Steph has kept me painfully aware of this. I haven’t read blogs, I haven’t listened to podcasts, I have barely left my house. I have never made it a secret that I have depression issues. It has been something I have struggled with for [...]
