When I was 13 years old, I couldn’t imagine waiting until I was in my twenties to get married. This was both because I was a romantic and because I was raised to believe that you shouldn’t have sex until you got married. At 13, I couldn’t imagine waiting seven or more years to have sex (twenty, […]
Today is the last day of my 20s. And so I’m doing a café crawl, going to all the coffee shops I can and writing blog posts… basically what I’ve been doing for the last six years of my life (I can’t tell if that sounds more braggy or embarrassing, but it is true).
