  • Moments in which I was bullied, but also moment where I was the bully. I regret both.
  • Update on Chloe (still here)
  • And oh SO much more

  8. What would you immediately do differently if you knew that no one would judge you
  9. What’s something nobody could ever steal from you?
  10. What would you like to forgive right now
  11. Happiness is not….

  17. What recently reminded you of how fast time flies?
