Seeing me in you.

Looking into your eyes, I lose myself in their depths, My hands in yours, Seem to melt all my troubles away.

Psst! I passed.

Remember those exams I had two months ago?

Sincere advice — Next time you’re freewheeling around like me, just observe what’s around you. One of our stopsContinue reading “Contrasting Worlds! (For better or for worse?)”
