I'm 28 years old. That means a lot of things to a lot of different people.
Every conflict or emotion in your life can all be tied back to the self. In other words, it's always about you. Always. If you dissect a problem, artwork, fight, or even a happy, positive feeling down to its skeleton, you'll find yourself staring right back at you.
