It’s time to begin, so count me in … 5,6,7 oh I give up

There comes a point in adulthood when your hopes and dreams are met with reality...

Like many of my friends, I spent most of my childhood pretending to be an adult. From fake marriages in the playground to building the perfect house on the Sims, growing up in the 90s saw crop tops, tamagotchi's, transfer tattoos, platform Skechers and more make-up than the Spice Girls put together as my vital… Continue reading Adulthood is coming, so is the Vengabus
