But, then it just sat, unused on my shelf for a while. I thought this could be a fun time-capsule like journey. There isn't much space in the…Read more Personal Exploration (pt 1)
In January, I shared a bit of what was going on in my life. At the time of writing, I was not sure when the resolution, or healing, would come; the foreseeable future felt dark and uncertain.

I'm writing this from the past. I started this in the middle of July 2017, and have been piecing it together since.
