The Day Before You Came

Yesterday was, without doubt, one of the most difficult days I've ever had as an adult. 'Yeah yeah, it's all hyperbole,' I hear you mutter BUT THAT IS WHERE YOU ARE WRONG. It was apparent, going into this year, there would be points where everything could topple, but what wasn't expected was the opposite to take … Continue reading The Day Before You Came

GSME #24 :: Stupid Girl

On Friday, I did something stupid, and paid the price by being soundly roasted to a crisp on Social media. What did I learn from this?
