Take A Breath and Hold It In

Take A Breath and Hold It In

Trapped, alone, tired, breathless, stressed, confused, etc. All the adjectives describing my life at points when I feel like so much is happening at one time.

Keep Turning the Pages

Keep Turning the Pages

Reading is quite possibly one of my favorite things to do. For pleasure, that is. I absolutely despise reading textbooks or academic articles, on the contrary that they aren't boring.
