When the sound of chewing drives you crazy

I'm definitely one of those people who find the sound of chewing infuriating. I have moments when it's tolerable but, for the most part, it drives me crazy. Irrationally so. It turns out, this may be as much of a biological thing, as it is a psychological thing (and yet another thing to add to…

Nice, sunny day to be outdoors

I've taken a couple days off this week to decompress after what feels like a pretty intense six months or so at work. Today turned out to be a really nice, warm day (we have rain and cold weather forecast for the rest of the week), so I went for a walk this morning. This…
