Homecoming 2016 and First Place

Homecoming this year was way different than Homecoming last year. Last year I was so angsty and preoccupied with trivial social issues. This year was way more chill. (Check out my post from last year here.) Like last year, we didn’t go to the dance. Unlike last year, we wanted to (it’s senior year, you […]

I’m Back!

It feels like FOREVER since I last blogged. I’ve missed it so much. Honestly, there’s something so freeing in writing down mundane, day to day events.
