You know when you've had one of those convos that leaves you telling yourself "o baby! Yeepa! (Jeez!) you must've been high as a kite when… Continue reading See me
I feel I've changed as a person. I still look like my smiley self but a few times I've had friends ask me what has happened to the softy me? Truth is, I don't really know. I do think I've come to the stage in my life where I don't want to be bothered bottling up feelings when stuff upsets me. I… Continue reading Who you epp?!
