Jan 23, 2012 | 7 Comments

Blooger formula for remaining mysterious: Write a post one day, then completely contradict yourself the next day.

Works like a charm.  🙂

Yesterday I wrote a post about not allowing people to stand in the way of your dreams.  I strongly believe in this idea.  HOWEVER, does it mean we can do anything?
