Makes you think

So it's almost been a year since I started this blog and I guess I've just been reflecting on how it's changed over time. I started out writing about serious topics but instead of criticizing or trying to inspire a call to action, I just wrote about how they affected me for the most part.… Continue reading Makes you think
