It’s quite funny that for someone who is so generally “quiet” I have such a hard time just getting my mind to be still but I’m learning to just let things be, and take the weight of the world off my shoulders.
Here are some things that have caught my eye lately:
Postbourgie Takes a look at who can appropriate stories and culture

Random confession of the day: I am addicted to Nutella – it’s like crack.
