back to the ol’ grindstone

I rejoined the working class today. Perhaps the worst part of starting a new job is all of the hand-shaking that goes on (I dread hand-shaking thanks to my clamminess).

The texts are from a boy named Jared. I know this because I responded to his first text (“hi Anh”) with “sup,... Continue Reading →

pilates video

Ellen, who is the main instructor, was competing for her leading role against the hotter girl with the braids... Continue Reading →
