What I’m Into (Feb 2016)

February was all writing for two weeks, then all people slots for two weeks because of Jon’s Significant Birthday. (So probably makes sense that March involved so much resting – hence why this What I’m Into February is so late… More on Immobile March soon!)

What I’m Into (January 2016)
