We are three months into the new year and the last time I posted on this blog was August 2019, so naturally, a lot has changed.

I'm in my third and final year of college which means I'm starting to think about the future, and by that I mean I have at least two anxiety attacks a day wondering where I'm going to live, how I'm going to pay my bills and whether or not I'll ever learn how to make anything other than spaghetti bolognese.

To kick off the new year, (three months late), I'm going to be doing the TMI tag. I did the same thing in 2018, (click here to read), which you all seemed to enjoy so I thought I'd make it a yearly tradition (two years late)!
