Why I Can’t Sleep

This is one of several blogs I've been writing in my head for months now. But I feel it is finally time to fine-tune and post it for all the world to see. As memes and graphic tees have been reminding us for years, there are three things that humans are naturally...

My Physical and Verbal Bullying Story

I first starting writing this blog in October but I had to stop as typing it out was getting too much for me. However, it seemed apt to finally complete it as today is the start of Anti-Bullying Week. You see, I was bullied both physical and verbal bullying for over...
