Oh Hai There

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. While I’m not super consistent about posting on this blog, know that there is always a lot going on around me.

However, when it comes to writing, I…Continue reading “Teleseryes… Podcasts… Pride… Mules…”

I had to let my snails go back into the wild. But I was glad to have one of my best friends go out snail hunting with me. SheContinue reading “Whoops. Time for the Lightening Round Update.”
