Let’s Reevaluate

Day 19. This isn’t as easy as I originally thought. I missed two days of writing for legitimate reasons. But yesterday I missed because I succumbed to the I don’t want to’s. Yesterday could’ve been categorized as a “down day” for me. I woke up feeling down. Everything I looked at seemed to shout at me, you’re…… Continue reading Let’s Reevaluate

There wasn't much to be seen from them this year (sad face) as they usually dominate in the pool. I didn't see Katie… Continue reading Day 20: Breaking Records
