Hue

Scott McCrayola Hue was a man whose heart was made of gold. His crystal blue eyes could comfort all of the people around him; they cradled you like the ocean cradles a boat. The wispy white hair on his head was a constant reminder that age doesn’t have anything to do with youth since he …

8: Sleep

Even though this is probably one of the more boring topics I've covered so far, I think it's one of the most important. Getting sleep can help to start your day off on the right foot, and give you that extra bit of energy to take on the world with all that weight on your …
