Just stop judging people for what they do. Let everyone live how they want to. If you want to have sex all the time with a lot of people, that's totally fine.

I barely believe myself when I say summer is over. But I’m back in Nashville, so I can’t keep being in denial.

I almost fell into that trap, I typed that out … Continue reading Commute Contemplations: The “Be Yourself” Edition
