“Oh, well, um; I’m not really sure?” *Pauses, stutters words, and in a second goes from a confident grown-up to a bumbling moron who can’t seem to string a sentence together* Yes, that’s me. All of the above. If I am honest, I am pretty sick of that question and what it means. It wasn’t until … More So, What Do You Do?
September always gives me back-to-school vibes, always. It doesn’t matter how much time passes, it never fails to have me longing for a new pencil case and digging out those tights from the bottom of drawer.
