Basic Black and blue jeans

I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so I can’t get too upset when I run into someone …

Wanted

Cate Mezyk - November 4, 2014

Life is catching up with me and I’m feelin it.  Running non-stop lately is taking it’s toll. I’m exhausted.
