A #romanceclass experiment

January 8, 2019

First things first: Happy New Year, everybody! <3 Gosh–time flies so fast, doesn’t it? I hope everyone returned from their holiday vacations refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for the year ahead. So…fun fact: I had slacked off on writing early November. (Except that’s not actually a ~fun fact, because it makes me uncomfortable that I was rather unproductive toward the year’s…

video © Chi Yu Rodriguez I’m not sure where to start with this blog post, to be honest, because I feel like I haven’t fully recovered from what happened last Saturday.
