The list of excuses I have for not maintaining this blog lately is exhaustive. Ranging from “things were really busy at work” to “I am simply human garbage” to “it’s finally spring and I would rather be outside,” I obviously failed at carving out time to write…and that is okay. You heard it here first,… Continue reading I’m a Flight-er
Reasons I have cried in the past two weeks: A delayed flight. An episode of Grey's Anatomy. A poem that reminds me of a friend who passed away.
