The BIG 3-0

In exactly 2 months it will be my 30th birthday! I was looking back on posts on my old blog and came across a post about me freaking out about turning 27. Hahahaha. (help me) But jokes aside, age really is just a number. A big scary number. I think I’m more freaked out about […]

What I’m listening to

Ever since I was a child/teen, I’ve never worn both my earphones. I hated the idea of not being able to hear what was going on around me It’s also why I prefer the TV volume on a low setting, so I can juuuust hear what’s going on and I guess why I always sleep […]
