My Newest Poem
I haven’t been writing poetry lately. Not since the book at least. But I wrote my first poem in quite some time today. It’s different and will annoy many of you. But for those of you who are tech-minded, you might like it. You’ll probably think it doesn’t look right, but it’s just as I intended.

I’m also convinced that every taxi driver in the world knows and takes the longest possible route from point A to point B. It’s just irritating overall, honestly.

In fact, I enjoy the cross-section that takes place. I’ve...

Why I Redesigned My Website...Again.
+ Readability- This layout flows horizontally then vertically, which makes flowing from one post to another easier. + Design- It’s simple, organized but more aesthetically appealing than the previous version (Heath 2.0). + Fun- I really love learning new html/css. As many of you know, I’m not a web developer but I do thoroughly enjoy playing around with code. I’d really love...
