Am I Responsible or Regretful?
I have this weird thing about feeling responsible for someone else’s anger.
Finally putting my writing up on my own freaking blog
It took two years, but here I am finally putting a piece of fiction up here. I often write a couple hundred words here or there – little snippets that don’t become anything – and I wanted to put them up here for the longest time.
