a personal reflexion on Christmas

It's officially a week until Christmas. Which means there are only about two weeks of 2018 left. Which is crazy.

Dreamland, Margate: Childhood Fears vs Adult Throwbacks

Life is a roller coaster, come on in, and join the ride! We hear this so many times in life. Such a cheesy saying, don't you agree? It's like "follow your dream!", " don't stop believing", and etc., etc. They are cheesy incredible cliches, but who doesn't like to hear them once in a while … Continue reading Dreamland, Margate: Childhood Fears vs Adult Throwbacks
