I found out when I mentioned to a pen pal that I read this book and she said, she had been reading a lot of LGBT themed books to celebrate this month, so … Continue reading Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda- Book Review
I am blown out of my mind. What a book, and what a story!

I kept thinking whether people would be interested to know about my week and weekly chores or if I should just write a personal journal entry instead. In the end, I just … Continue reading Doing more with the same time- what a week!
