What’s Up? & Randomness

I get it. I’m basically hit or miss these days. Also, quite busy trying to stay afloat and on top of all my other responsibilities, but then again, who isn’t? There’s been a huge uptick on my Facebook Page views (but no “likes” <teary-faced emoji>) and I’m not really sure where from or why… it’s driving me a bit mad. Also, random friend requests.
