Is love a mirage?

A wise person once told me a good relationship involves two kind/forgiving hearts coming together as one. I never really pondered over those words, as I have always been a strong believer/advocate of taking a walk when it isn’t right. Like.…Thank you, next! You are not the only booboo in town……Uhm bye, that’s my next […]

Nerdy ASF!…Rediscover YOU

One of my bests moments entering school was discovering that they had a well-equipped library and I could sign-out books to take home and read. I still remember the first book I […]
