On Finding the Perfect Balance

Imagine this: The perfect day, starting with a cup of tea and ending with a book. Filled with mastering a new recipe (something involving chicken, no doubt), writing a short story, going for a run (classic cardio) (just had to google ‘is running cardio’ to make sure), keeping everyone in my life happy, watering a … Continue reading On Finding the Perfect Balance

On Friendships in my Twenties
