"Free Falling!" Haha, the song is stuck in my head. I deleted 100 drafts yesterday. Yes, 100 potential blog posts. 100 pieces of drafted ideas, brainstorms, or entire essays in the trash later and I feel so free! There is something very satisfying about getting rid of things you worked on, especially when they just … Continue reading and I’m FREEEE…
