200 Followers!

#8Sunday 06/11/17 WeWriWa Entry: “Intruders”

Yeah, it’s been like a month since my last snippet. In my defense, I had no idea how busy the last month of high school can be. And of course, after graduation I assumed that it was all finally over- I was gravely mistaken. Continue reading “#8Sunday 06/11/17 WeWriWa Entry: “Intruders””
