    Update the title maybe the link also? I know it was still "Breaking" and flashing at the top of NBC news when I first posted.

    Do not underestimate what type of substances you put in your body. Alcohol alone is poison to your system. Sure a beer every now and then is fine but be very aware of how much you are drinking and such. If you have a family history of addiction it is a very slippery slope, because that shit will come back to haunt you.

    Be mindful.

    I rediscovered my love for exercise. I have been riding my bike almost every morning the past half month. I absolutely love the fresh air and the wind in my face. Also re-applying to college.

    I have a massive backlog and I keep going back to old games I've already beaten. I think I'm going to finally nail down Fallout 4 today

    I've been cleaning up my life the past few months. I finally quit drinking and am now beyond 90 days sober. Yesterday was a weird day (the 4th) because I haven't had a sober 4th in almost 2 decades. I quit posting here because I felt ashamed how I was just adding "noise" or just anywhere. One of my many many reasons I had to quit drinking for good.

    Anyway, today I am going to relax with some video games I got off the steam summer sale because wow, I've saved around $800 the past 3 months.

    *: I went on a 2km walk this morning and it felt great

    Just fyi, the green new deal is a resolution and not a bill. Resolutions are general guidelines for what we should do in the future

    Not surprising to me since colbert actually has real laughs with his guests and his monologues are great. Also he doesn't have to spend time playing games with a guest to fill awkward interviews.
