Hi, it's me, Ben! It's time for my yearly blog post again. A lot has changed since my last one. The biggest thing is we got a house! It's been a lot of fun and stress but thankfully the stress is almost gone since we're almost 100% settled in/renovated.

A lot of people have been reaching out to me lately. I'm so grateful to be a safe place for so many.
