Welcome Our Newest Blogger, Leo!

Welcome Our Newest Blogger, Leo!

Life 7

  As Leo mentions below in the post, we’ve been planning on him joining the team for a really long time… so if you think I’m bad with procrastinating, well, then there’s Leo : P Leo is one of my friends from high school and college, and Caylin and I are super excited to welcome him onto the blog!

I’ll tell you why: First of all, we just finished up our finals and ended our freshman year of college. Why does that matter? Well, we’re on summer break until next September and we’ll have so much more time to read and blog, and most of all, actually do things with our lives.

Discussion 6

As a very shy, introverted person, blogging is a terrifying experience. I mean, I like it, but the amount of anxiety I have over very simple things, like expressing my own thoughts on my own blog, is absolutely ridiculous. I worry about everything. Lately, I’ve been trying to just do things before I can think them through or really worry about them to the point where I decide to not do them. So, as soon as I have an idea… Read more »
