Here's What February and March 2017 Looked Like For Me

Ok. Ok. OK! Is it too late now to say SOOOORRYYYYY? I’ve been working really hard this last month and a half.

I have to start this blog post by humbling apologising. For those who were following my journalling series back in January. I started something that I knew I couldn’t finish.
