“Not Until We Are Lost Do We Begin to Find Ourselves”

Okay so before I get into the actual topic of this post, here’s a life update. Don’t worry, it’ll give a bit of background to the point: I am still working and living at home. I was planning on staying here until the end of the summer, but that might change, depending on what I…
