Different year, same situation. Valentine's Day is soon approaching, with less than a week away! My friends who are in a relationship are excited, shopping for a cute outfit to wear and planning out their makeup. They are scurrying to find their boyfriends the right gift and some are even planning on what to say … Continue reading Preparing for Valentine’s Day, the Tinder way
Hannah Brencher has a way of putting my thoughts into words I can never fathom to put together myself. This post is truly beautiful, thought provoking, and painful.
