A New Start

Well, where to start? I’ve had a year. A hell of a year. A year of hell. I’ve had a lot of trips to a lot of different doctors. I have lost touch with friends and reconnected with friends. I found out that you can be doing well and then the world can crash in […]

Lewis I found easier to connect to but Endeavour has been the real highlight of the group for me. A fourth season has been announced and I decided to re-watch […]

I always try to give as much as I can but this year I […]
