Getting My &*#@ Together Series: I’m a F*&# Unicorn!!!!

We’re about to have a very layered conversation …                                 … One that is filled with nuisance … And perspective, but we’re going to have it anyway, damn it, because: 1.

Getting My &*#@ Together Series: USE – YOUR – WORDS
