It’s funny how life goes really – in every chapter you meet amazing people that shape your life and live out crazy experiences that change your life.
I’ve never been more terrified at the start of a new chapter… this one will be called “CHAPTER 11 – Real Life” – and that might just be the scariest thing I’ve ever done…. But it will be awesome. Every chapter is.
