Get on my levellllll I have been thinking a lot about adulting and adulthood in the last couple of weeks since the new year.

The 5 Best Books for Achieving Your New Year's Resolutions

Be the change you want to see in 2019. How is it only mid-January? I feel like this is always the looongest month of the year.
