I didn't realize how much I'd been blogging this year until I looked up at that number. I'm proud of myself, guys! And now that I've patted myself on the back... It's been a rough week. I feel like I say that every week, but at the same time, I know that there will come… Continue reading 80. How to… appreciate the past and still look toward the future.
It's okay to mourn people that come and go in your life... whether it's your second life, or your real one. Some people were meant to be there. They're friends, confidants, even lovers, and they leave a mark on your heart. But some people? Some were meant to only be there for a short time.… Continue reading 61. How to… remember.
My grandma and I talked at least once a week over the last ten years... except for the last two.

There's this thing I think some people need to learn how to do... myself being one of them. I wouldn't bring this up here if I wasn't guilty of it, too.
