The Ex Files

I’m not really friends with anyone I’ve seriously dated for … reasons. Bogart, on the other hand, is pretty good friends with his ex.

I’ve never committed to anything for six years, let alone paid it frequent visits…… Continue reading The Ex Files

Don’t Steph believing

I could not make this up if I tried. Life is funny sometimes; other times it is just so weird that your choices are to laugh or cry. I (usually) choose the former. I spent the last couple of days in my hometown celebrating my little sister’s graduation/contemplating my own future scholarly endeavours (I’m going…… Continue reading Don’t Steph believing
