As a former journalism major, the love of writing has always been close to my heart, therefore, I am very appreciative to be able to share with you my thoughts on …
I’m working on a theory: People have always been crazy, we just haven’t known about it. With today’s 24-hour news cycle, every nutty thing we do is public knowledge. (I’ve always liked this saying: “Live as if every single thing you do will someday be known. Because it will be.”)
