First Time For Everything

Let me introduce myself.


Real Talk

I want to take a step back from my stories for a quick sec to talk about the realities of going out, drinking, and the dangers that it can present. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe that people should live in fear and not ever go out (obviously), but I’ve also had a few […]
