    A Week in Review


    I learned a lot this past week. The Daily Creates were fun to go through and spend five minutes thinking about what applied to each of them. I had to spend a little time thinking about a phrase that I hear a lot in my hometown.

    To start off with, no I was not actually born in the 80’s, I was born in 1998. However, my parents grew up in that time and while they did adapt with the times, they still kept a foot in the 80’s. By the time I was 5 years old, …
