trying something new…a newsletter style post

hey – how are you doing? it’s been a while since I’ve written on here. we live in a culture where everything has to be perfect and airbrushed. i miss and pine for the days where you didn’t have to triple check and double think everything.

Here is some music I’ve been listening to! Shoutout to Maddy, aka Mr. Moist for the rec:
