Word Wednesday – All Good Things Must (Eventually) End

Pregame Shenanigans

It’s no secret that change is hard for me. I like the familiar, I find comfort in routine. I’m an introvert by every definition of the word so I don’t like big groups of new people so once I’ve joined a social activity, I’m likely to stick to it because the initial investment was so… Continue reading Word Wednesday – All Good Things Must (Eventually) End
