I realized it's been a long time since I updated my archaic "about me" page, and decided to do something about it. Wanna check it out? Do! I think in a lot of ways it's important for me to look back on where I came from and take note of the steps that it took… Continue reading Updated ‘Me’?
As an over-thinker and a daydreamer, it doesn't surprise me about myself that I am always looking for a solution. To everything.
