Posting Delay P2

So I just started a new job this week which has me driving farther and having less time at home, I’m going to try to catch back up on my posts.

My name is Lucas and I’m starting this blogs (obviously) because life is too short. To explain what i mean live is to short, several people close to me have passed away over the last few years and after this most recent one I found myself questioning how many of the things I’ve wanted to learn will I actually get around…
