Buoyancy

Disclaimer: I apologize to anyone offended by the expletives in my posts. But my mom raised me to swear like a sailor, so you can blame her (Hi, Mom!).  I’m a little pissed off lately. Do you want to know why? I don’t care, I’ll tell you anyway: WAIT. Let’s backtrack.  Let me start with […]

Ink

Eating Disorders Awareness Week
