    My Time For Escape

    I am usually doing multiple things at once. Texting, chatting, reading, writing, working, helping out my mom, taking care of my responsibilities, etc. Sometimes I just need a break to do one thing at a time and be care free unapologetically :) There is not a more freeing feeling...

    What impact does it have on people not to be

    able to find you at all? I'm sort of in that space. I'm deleting everything, all my social networks. To sort of re-group and then come back in a few months. I want to lose weight and find happiness. Is this dramatic of me to delete myself though? I just don't wanna be tempted to...
