I’m 24 today – yay! Here’s a blog post to celebrate. Sometimes I do dumb things… And then I’m like, “Hey look at that! I just went ahead and did that thing… which was really dumb… Why’d I do that? If only I had thought for half a second first!” 😀 So. I’m going […]Read More 3 Questions to Ask Yourself before you do Anything Stupid :)
