On Being the Least of my Friends

I’m not good at a lot of things. There are over a billion things that other people succeed at that I struggle with every day… cartwheels, patience, losing weight, having great hair, icing a cake perfectly, FONDANT, painting, basketball, photography, talking when I’m nervous…  Tons and tons of things that I’m just not all that […]
