I was trying to think of a chill idea for a blog post, and I thought it might be cool for you to get to know me a little better. One fun fact about me is that I like making lists- things I'm thankful for, things I need to get done, adventures I want to go on, moments that impact me- you name it, I probably have a little list of it in my journal.
