I'm writing this from the past. I started this in the middle of July 2017, and have been piecing it together since. When I started this, I was less than a month into my relationship with my boyfriend. But this is published a few days after my wedding. I know that sounds weird, that this…Read more Wait.
I've entered a really cool time in my life, guys. I graduated from college a few weeks ago. I just started my (first) full-time job.
