I guess I worked some stuff out?

Hello, old friends and new. Sorry I haven’t been around for a while – in a typical Natalie fashion, I threw myself into the deep end and lost myself adrift. But I’m back! At least for this one post (and maybe a couple more, if I think of anything funny to tell you). To recap, […]
