I apologize first and foremost because I am going through mental HELL right now and I am in a lot of pain. I have been crying for the better part of now nearly 36 hours and I am so beyond tired and so beyond fed up with it all that I (also very literally) cannot … Continue reading Physical Involvement
My mom had a terrible childhood; I will not say too much about that because I am currently working on an interview "series" with her to hear her whole story and get it in writing. But to make a VERY long story short, she was adopted as a baby when her biological mother became pregnant … Continue reading An Anecdote
This one is breaking my heart a little bit. I sat down with my leg up and started watching a random film on Netflix which takes place in Great Britain ... and I swear I have been to some of the places in some scenes of the film.
