    Fighting The Elements

     It’s cold out there these days. The air has a little bite to it now, December. Wear layers we’re told, to fight the cold.I’m indoors more than I am out. It’s cozy, and I’m happy in here most of the time, but occasionally it gets too quiet and my thoughts subvert every...

    I've always been the girl

    who doesn't need a relationship to be happy. For some reason that is changing, and I have a desire to be with someone. I need to be strong to not fall for the first guy to tell me he 'loves' me. Not going to make that mistake again
