God Bless the Child

This will be my last blog post.    I came to the realization these past few weeks that I’m nervous about graduating because I’m now in the same position my parents have been while I was growing up. I grew up constantly reminded of how poor we were, my mother would write out the budget […]

Going. Going. Gone.

Content warning: death I found out recently that a childhood friend of mine passed away. It happened a while ago, I only found out recently because I don’t follow anyone on Facebook, so it was after I purposefully started looking up high school friends that I found this out.
