Something my Dad taught me when I was small is that it’s okay to have strong emotions. Every day in this world there will be people who you struggle with, love, hate, etc. Some will make you want to grind your teeth to little stumps, some alternatively will make you want to eat everything in […]

A Million Dreams

I have always been the kind of person to take a lot of inspiration from literature and films. Ever since I was young I would write stories about things I saw, did or wanted to be. I feel that I have somewhat my direction of thought and ambition has changed as I’ve gotten older. Nowadays […]
