My Open Mic Experience

On 11/21, I went to the second open mic night held in my hometown.  I posted this post describing my newest quest on the bucket list of life, which was actually performing at an open mic night.  Well, with the support and encouragement from friends and family, I didn't chicken out, lol! I performed one of… Continue reading My Open Mic Experience

So, I sort of went against my challenge to myself yesterday, but I am glad I did. I originally told myself that I would not buy myself a stitch of clothing until I lost a substantial amount of weight.  I was all for this, until I realized I have no winter clothes, and a pair… Continue reading I Bought Clothes. Lol
