Today’s prompt for Blog Everyday in May is to “List ten things you have accomplished in the past decade.”
Whoo then, alright. A decade ago, I was only 15, so I feel like I might have some trouble coming up with ten. Also, I always worry about sounding like I’m bragging, but I suppose that, since this is the prompt, it’s alright.
