Milestones

Our whole life is about milestones, even death is a milestone - not usually celebrated the same way, as say your first kiss or bow chicka wow wow, but still a milestone.

Will You Be My Friend?

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wasn't exactly Casanova when it came to dating, well apparently that awkward, not picking up on cues and overall ignorance to the process, is also my style when it comes to making friends - something I didn't realize I was in want of.

My New Normal
