Wanting to try again

February 1, 2020

Bocas House, Coral Gables – USA

September 20, 2018

I don’t usually like milkshakes and I blame my mum for that. When we were kids we had our medication with strawberry milkshake and since then I can’t go near the stuff – and even the smell of the Mc Donalds ones makes me feel ill. However, I specifically went to Bocas House for one…

I don’t understand how this kind of bullshit still goes on, but I also don’t understand how so many people are surprised. Sexual harassment, assault and abuse happen day in,…
