TYH promise: never stop speaking

wake up call

I woke up this morning on the wrong side of the bed. I didn’t want to spent my entire day studying, missed my family and friends back home, and felt as though my most recent gym efforts haven’t been paying off as I would like them to. I trudged into the kitchen to make some […]
