Twenty Fine.

Have you even just looked up and BOOM you're a whole year older?  That's what happened to me last Friday.  I am now 25 years of age.  Which is weird because I remember the time when I thought 25 was old...now here I am.

Got Balance?

Balance. I never understood the importance of this word, until I lost it.  Around July 2017, I lost my balance and in October of 2017, I totally gave up on trying to get it back.  How did I get thrown off balance?  There were a lot of moving parts.  I moved, I started school, I… Continue reading Got Balance?
