Trying to keep positive but the rain always brings me down a little and zaps my motivation. I'm plan... Read more

    5/24/2017 12:38:53 AM, by AEONWARRIOR

    I've hit a major bump in the road and have been smacked in the face with a reality check. Two months ago I moved into my first RENTED apartment.

Starting this low, I'm really struggling with my appetite and s... Read more
