There’s no good excuse for not writing anything for a month, except I had nothing good to say and I suppose I’ve been busy. I still don’t have anything good to say but sometimes writing nothing at all helps your brain to think of more things to write, so let’s hope for that. I want…… Continue reading Excuse
To a friend, who’s going international and not returning, to clarify. And the short answer is, you can’t.
