The Hamster Wheel that is Tyler’s Brain: 50 thoughts I had today.

Random Fact: Hamsters can store half their weight in food in their cheeks.


Focus is defined as “the center of interest or activity.” Some days it is easier to focus on one specific topic or item and other days it is difficult because we have so many thoughts and ideas floating around in our head. Usually when writing I have a clear idea about what I am going to share, but for whatever reason, this week I cant pick just one. So instead of having the preverbal argument with the hamster in the wheel that is powering my brain, I thought I would just give into it and share everything that is floating in my mind. 6359644500328600321787960773_Hamster-wheel
