I'VE BEEN BLOGGING FOR THREE YEARS! I can't believe it. I've learnt a lot, and I'm still clueless about most things. But I've had fun. I love this space, and I love the people I've met through it. Here's to many more years!

I finally watched all three seasons of Stranger Things!  Ruby first insisted that I watch it months ago, but I only got as far as episode 5 of the first season because I was extremely bored and not invested in the characters.
