New Year And All That

So New Year, new me and all that jazz… Happy New Year, folks! 2018 had been a rollercoaster ride for me – between finishing up the internship year in the Pacific Northwest (still one of the BEST times of my life!), and then readjusting back to the Midwest, plus all the ups and downs, it […]

It’s the Little Things

Yesterday, I got the grades for my Fall 2018 semester back. I had bitched and moaned about this semester all semester to Elle – up to the point of her death. She had told me that she knew that I would do fine, and that I’d thrive. She commiserated in the shitty class that I […]
