However, once completed I felt liberated, brand new, and like a heavy weight was removed from my shoulders... never went back.Read More
Hello and welcome to my first blog post. If you’d like to know more about me check out my about page.Anyways, here’s a small tour of what my minimal room looks like:
As you can tell it has nothing but the essentials. White walls with no decorations. A bookshelf that holds some of my pictures, a small Buddha, my smart scale, and the books I’m using right now, 2 pictures, and a tiny bike my dad gave me.Read More
