Posted on September 9, 2014 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)



I just cut myself off from Facebook and Instagram. I deleted the apps from my phone approximately eight minutes ago. It felt freeing...followed by a few seconds of panic, followed by relief.

Posted on November 6, 2013 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

I ran across this article and thought it might be a good read. Zumba is a group fitness exercise and sometimes a group can have it's own silent drama.
