If you come to my house, it feels like a home. And for the first time in my life, I am no longer running .... I'm happy here in this place, I made a home for me and my modern family.
I'm happy to be alive, writing this blog post because things could have went a lot differently. Upwards and Onwards #2020.

All I remember is me getting up from the desk feeling like a f***ing rockstar because I create things like a badass.
