Don’t Doubt Your Standards

Don’t Compromise Your Standards It was nice outside today, so I decided to et my mail (yes, I only get my mail when the weather is nice).  As I began walking, I noticed a guy looking at me.  It was uncomfortable for me, because I thought he might try to talk to me, and IContinue reading “Don’t Doubt Your Standards”
