I hate the post office. It literally gives me a panic attack. The postal people (locally) are one step above the DMV in their scary-ness. I always do it wrong and my packages look like they were wrapped by a five year old because I start freaking out while addressing […]

School started back yesterday and today was my first full day off in a quite house in a long time. Of course I had big plans but ultimately this is what I got done today. I’m not going to lie. All the badness and sadness in the world right now […]
