To be truthful there has been so much to learn, I don’t know where to start.

Everything is so fast paced its quite scary.

Yes there have been times where I have wanted to give up, but thankfully I have somehow managed to push through. Continue reading

I don’t understand, my answer is very simple “change”. I know this sounds silly but it’s true, no one likes it but it happens, so here is my journey so far.

In a Galaxy far far away…..
