How to Get Fit Without Exercising

I hate exercising. Seriously, I find treadmills and exercise bikes boring, weight lifting utterly pointless, and jogging? Ugh. About as exciting as drilling holes into my own skull*. That can’t be comfortable. There’s a huge worry in our society about the costs of inactivity, ranging from the fact that sitting on the couch all day watching TV is socially frowned upon to the fact that a sedentary lifestyle can lead to premature death. Studies keep coming out saying that being

Becoming Who I Already Am

I found some old sketchbooks of mine that I filled up years ago, and decided I’d go through them from the very beginning and see how my drawings have changed.
