Fang Talks v3.0

Today marks another year round for this blog. I am so, so sorry.

It’s funny, I was actually feeling in the mood to write about the low bar of content that makes it on here again. You know, stir it up, bring back an old favorite. Then I remembered that hey, it’s the twenty-first right? That means we have a continued existence to mourn! Don’t you think that aligns nicely with the thing I wanted to do originally?

Rumbling

Nothing more comfy than bad weather.

There was a little bit of thunder last night. A loud rumbling up in the sky, somewhere in the distance. I hadn’t heard that in such a long time. And while it didn’t last long enough to lull me to sleep, it was still great. The sound of heavy rain has the same effect, it’s oddly soothing.
