Taking Time Out And Putting Yourself First

    Hey, hello, hi. How are you? It’s been rather quiet here this month, hasn’t it? I’m sorry, I’m not going to apologise for taking time out because I’ve very much needed it. Grab yourself a cup of tea, I’m going to have a ramble.

For me personally, I get infuriated with it, but it’s still the app I spend the most time on. Whilst Twitter is my most used app, I’m much more likely to be found scrolling Instagram because I am an incredibly visual person, which is what made me fall in love with Instagram in the first place – though my images are much better now than the early filter-to-death ones!
