It’s Okay to be You

A few days ago, I was texting Ashley, a friend of mine from grad school, that I had fallen a bit out of touch with.  We’re not on bad terms; we’ve both been very busy and just haven’t crossed paths in a long time.  When she asked how I was doing, I admitted that I’ve […]

Mac-to-PC: The Great Conversionalizing
