    For The First Time...

    I am approaching 40 and this is the first time I am living by myself. Partially. 3 to 4 days a week, I have my son so he makes up for the quiet nights and lonely days. It's nice to have my own space, do anything I want, decorate however I want. I realized that I like the...

    Good And Bad

    It can be so great at times having the ability to do what I want and not having a lot of responsibilities along with less stress. Other times, I feel so alone like there is no one else like me or that people won't accept me for who I am.
