I’ve got thirty days left in my twenties. That means I probably am not going to ever make it onto a 30 under 30 list, or publish a book before thirty, or get married and have *at least* two kids before thirty (lol childhood goals). And I know I’m being facetious. Like those things are definitely not going to happen. Continue reading
Happy Friday, friends! I’m starting to teach summer classes next week, so enjoying my last relatively free days with lots of reading, writing, and a long overdue deep clean of my room.
