    Twenty Nineteen

    Somehow we’ve made it to another year’s end. Wow. Well to start..I’m going to try to keep this short — but truthfully brevity has never really been my strong suit when it comes to reflections and I haven’t written here since February which seems both so close and yet so far away.

    On Being 21…

    and things I’m glad I learned in the last year. Yesterday I celebrated a long awaited birthday for many Americans: 21. Or the long awaited day you ditch any fake IDs, stop paying other people to buy alcohol for you, and no longer have to rely on your friend being the bouncer at the bar to get in. Now I’m not saying…
