Facing The Demons

Okay, two things:  One, tonight, I am going to write about facing your fears. And two, it is currently 1 am. Dani and I are on winter break at the moment, but the clock is ticking. We have approximately 3 days left. We are determined to use this precious time wisely, and staying up late […]
