Solygamy. Yes, It’s A Thing.

So I actually just heard of this word for the first time and without even looking it up, I concluded that it was the opposite of polygamy, where people believe in marriage between more than one person, whereas solygamy is the belief in solo marriage, or marriage to one’s self.

So I’m off work today and I literally haven’t left my house—barely left the bed. I’m taking a few days off before I start my new position. In my new office. I’m really looking forward to it. 

I need this new start.  I think that it’ll be really good for me.  Continue reading “Desperate Love”
