The past month and a half have been a whirlwind of emotions and unfortunate events that I still haven't fully processed. I don't do well with stress and tend to bury it in an effort to keep going with the daily responsibilities of life, which eventually leads to burn out. What can I say, that's… Continue reading Patience and Prey | Sprite Story Update
