Numbers do not define. Not pants sizes, not numbers on a scale, and certainly not the ten digits of the phone number that you didn’t get from that attractive person. They don’t define your worth, or mine. You know what does define me? All those things you can’t measure with numbers. My work ethic. Everyone… Continue reading Today’s reminder
The Siren by Kiera Cass ***** It's been a long time since I've read a book that I couldn't stop. I started this at the recommendation of a friend after an eventful and mildly dramatic evening.
