Time to get off

When my sisters and I were little, our mother would often take us to Kress', in historic downtown Montgomery, AL.

It never happened

I've never been a fan of insects, particularly flies, mosquitoes, and bees. They're annoying yet impactful little bugs, that never seem to go away, no matter how many times you swat them.

A once impoverished student, I share the adversities and oppositions I faced, but overcame to become a success and not another statistic. It doesn't matter how embarrassing, terrible, or difficult your story is, TELL IT! Somebody's always … Continue reading Somebody’s always listening
