Always fight with people/things your own size!

If not, the bigger one will win.

This post is somewhat different as I don’t have much to go on that topic. I went on a ride today, I’m trying to do at least 20 miles three times a week until I find work. I had an interview August 20th and I am still waiting to hear back.

Fight with those your own size or you will loose!
