Personal Revie of the Day
I had a personal revie. Something I needed, and something I don't plan on going back on.
I will NOT be a slave to make-up, hair care, or any other "thing" that is the "thing" of the day.

Shock and Awe (Lessons from the King)
Being someone coming from a seriously high calorie diet (mostly fast food and take-out, re- inspired by 1. my unwillingness to spend hours cooking every few hours and 2. being totally sick of sharing a kitchen with five other people) I was amaze... Read more
