Prior to this moment, I thought the only hiking I would ever do would come after a plane crash, stranding me with a group of strangers on a deserted jungle island. I actually think about this a lot, and I have a number of concerns.
You know how Facebook does that creepy thing where it loads your sidebar with ads that appeal to you based on your browsing history?
My waist cincher is making me a monster. Let me start this post by saying there are very few things I won’t try when offered or dared. Like if you take a sip of soda and it tastes weird, so you’re all, “I think the soda machine is out this tastes gross.” I will then […]
And now if you direct your attention to the center of the show ring, I’d like to present the sporting group.
