Hi you,   Well look at that, better yet, look at you. You’ve made it. You’re still making it. And I know you will continue to make it. You could say I’m biased because I am you, but sometimes convincing yourself of your accomplishments is the most difficult. You’ve grown...

One thing I swore to myself that I would do when I came back home was to travel and do more things locally. I also swore that I would walk more places instead of driving, like i did in Australia, but that definitely has not happened...
