Tuesday, April 21, 2015      9 comments

I find that this is the hardest thing to do - asking for help. I tend to keep things very personal. I am not a fan of Facebook (who needs to know what I did today). I don't blog since I don't like the idea of people reading my inner thoughts (yo... Read more
