At last, a blog.

I’ve always loved to write. I’ve always had so much to say but not once did I ever think of starting a blog. I just knew that it would be tedious. (And I never liked tedious. :P) Now, however, I feel like there’s reason for me to finally do this. The inspiration to finally start a […]
