  • Winter is Here! :)

    After a week of emotional turbulence, my mood is finally back to normal again. So I went for a walk today at Raudvika. It’s been a couple of months since I went for a walk here. I’ve been busy with work and school and exams are approaching fast as well so I’m kinda stressed out […]
