A year ago, I started a new blog because I was afraid that this one had become too personal. I wanted a fresh start. A platform that actually represented who I was at that point in my life. Graduating university was a life change I could never have prepared for, but it was also a … Continue reading Goodbye to Coffee Shop Dreams
Hello readers, I think it's only fair that I introduce myself again ...
