Through out most of last week, I kept thinking about friends...and how we go our separate ways even though that's not how we ever saw things playing out.

Especially when we have all mostly been placed under lock down. What do you think about...and how do you go about talking about a topic that … Continue reading In the blink of an eye
Dear self, I now know a little more about depression.
