What's My Stage Again: Seriously Though
No one knew what to say when I was diagnosed with cancer. Immediately after finding out my diagnosis, I texted and called a few close friends.

The reactions were mixed, to say the least. There are some obv...

Being the oldest, I was the first to experience everything this school had to offer, and both my famil...

On these days, we often turn to cute cat videos, delicious snacks, or snuggling in bed with a book or Netflix. Smart Girl Sami Main recognizes that we have these kin...
