Dear 5-year-old me, Look at you, you dancing, laughing, happy as Larry little girl with the world's biggest smile on your face and an even bigger heart. Look at how happy you are and stay that way for as long as you possibly can. Keep smiling and laughing and dancing to your heart's content. Your… Continue reading If I Could Talk To My Younger Self
What's the best way to prepare for next weeks' mocks? Go to Manchester for half the week! To be honest, a little bit of chill time never hurt anyone and seriously, this was the best decision I have made as of late. A lot of my friends are still in Manchester, some cycling friends, swimming… Continue reading Manchester Madness
