It's official - the government has been shut down.

The Republican Party, in its seemingly endless intransigence, has thrown a procedural hissy fit because they couldn't extort the changes that they couldn't win through the legislative process, through the courts, and through elections.

Not much is known about the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), known widely here in the United States as North Korea. The country is frequently referred to as a "Hermit Kingdom" - one that has walled itself off, intentionally, from the rest of the world.

For over a year I have been unhappy with my job, but powerless to leave it.

I haven't been unhappy with the hours I work, because I have the ability to set my own schedule.

I haven't been unhappy with the money I make, because I have made more money these last few years than I have ever made in my life.

I was unhappy because I didn't like the work that I was doing, and in the grand scheme of things I felt like I was working in an industry that is a big part of "the problem."

I could make five diaries an hour about this...
