Currently: Listening: Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours dropped 40 years ago on February 4. Friends, who doesn’t know every word to every song? How could it have been 40 years? I mean…
Love the one you’re with, and yourself, don’t forget to love yourself! Peeps, it’s Dreadruary, I mean February. There’s a reason February is shorter than all the other months. It’s (generally) cold.
