TV Series Review: Z Nation

  Just finished watching seasons 1 & 2 (all that is currently available) on Netflix and … I liked it! I should probably preface this by saying that I’m not really into zombies. They make no sense.

36-Point Font!

People often ask me how I write when I’m legally blind. The answer? I use 36-point font and my monitor is on an arm that swings into my face so I don’t hurt my back! Or just look at the picture … apparently, they’re worth a thousand words. (Oh, and I know my desk is […]
