My birthday is coming up and the craziest thing has been happening: I've been telling people I'm turning a year older than I am actually turning. Either it's the old age, or the fact that my husband just turned that age (he's a year older than me). But I've been doing it. The fact is:… Continue reading I’m Offended. Here’s Why You Should Care.
Nope. I just don't. I just don't care anymore. I don't give a fig. For far too long, I've cared far too much. I've worried about what people thought of how I was dressed. I agonized over how people considered my hair, my make up, my outfits, the way my ass looked in those pants.… Continue reading I Just Don’t Care Anymore
