The scene: Saturday, Ali and Brian’s apartment. It is dark outside. 6 AM: My alarm goes off. Apparently I hit snooze. My bad. 6:40 AM: I wake up. I realize I didn’t hit snooze but rather hit “off.” It’s fine. […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Staying Positive

Date: October 20, 2011 at 8:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53
