Rollercoaster Do you find rollercoaster rides scary, exhilarating or somewhere in between? I would answer my own question with “it depends.” I have been thinking a lot about rollercoasters recently.

Have a System I have a system for just about everything. I am fortunate that systems come naturally to me. They are my coping method for life.
