  3. Thanks for checking in on my video blog at NotebookM.com. I’m not sure if you knew of Johnny’s Dance Band, but I hope you enjoyed the post anyway. Keep up your good work here. In my opinion, some of the best writers are from South America. It seems you also have discovered that.

  6. Sometimes I find that the universe conspiring to help me feels a lot like it conspiring against me. haha. I so often find that when I set my heart to a particular goal, the universe challenges me, tests me, and refines me, forcing me forward so I can become the kind of person able to actually handle that goal.
