what-a-realist-taught-me

  I’m married to a realist. He just can’t help himself. It’s crucial that every pathway of our lives, every decision, every conversation be grounded in what is true, what can be proven, and what is logical. It’s noble really.

So for an introvert who doesn’t like being uncomfortable, New Year’s Eve has to be quite possibly the worst holiday in existence.
