I Really Enjoy Being With Myself--No FOMO

I Really Enjoy Being With Myself--No FOMO
A lot of people think I’m always out and about, but those who TRULY know me know that there’s nothing I enjoy more than being cocooned up in my house, on my couch and wrapped in my Snuggie. Give me some Netflix or old sitcoms on YouTube and I am good. Those who know me... Read more »

Lemme Put You Up On Game 101: Writers Edition Part 2 feat. Elizabeth Gilbert

Pampering for a Purpose and the Fight Against Diabetes

I’ve been kind of sad lately because I haven’t been able to get out to as many events as I’d like to. Usually I’m always “somewhere” doing “something” but my financial circumstances as of late haven’t really allowed for that. I’m not sad about missing events, because really I’m kind of an anti-social person and... Read more »
