    Words To Me

    Do You Not...?

    I grew up in not the most ideal conditions for a person who becomes highly literate, but that did not stop me from not only getting good at reading, but burying my nose in a book whenever I could. I also learned how things worked, how to fix things, did chores, learned to take...
