  1. The Norwegian Girl // March 1, 2013

    This was just the motivation I needed to begin writing my Victorian Literature Essay that I`ve been putting of for weeks now..

  2. Francesca // March 2, 2013

    I wish I knew where to begin, I only know the superficial things to change, the deeper ones I am stuck !

  3. Jolleen // March 2, 2013

    Francesca: baby steps. Pick ONE thing about yourself that you’d like to change. Make a list of all your options, or ways you COULD change, or do things different. How would the changed way look? Then, pick ONE item off your list you COULD do NOW. Baby steps.
