I made a mistake a year back,
choosing my addiction to oxygen
over less demanding things.
I’m sick of trembling for problems
that aren’t mine and I’m sick of trying

80's Training Montage.
That actually didn't work out, though, because I fainted on my run up the stairs. And then Russia won. So we did the next best thing!
All the admins here at tWR who worked with Sol collaborated on a poem - since I guess the written word is something that we all appreciate here, who knew - in order to give our most heartfelt of thanks and
