  1. Getting to learn more about you has been fun! It's so cool that you used to do ballet, and really sad that you messed up your foot. I used to be an amazing singer, and about 2 years ago my voice changed and now it's painful to sing, so I can relate.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about you! New follower!
