Reading Time: 7 minutes I’ve always struggled against authority; always danced to my own drumbeat. If someone tells me that I ‘should’ do something, I won’t. Even if on a rational level I completely agree with them. Kelley will say to me, “Wow, this book is amazing! You should read it when I’m finished.” Nope. Despite that book being…Keep reading
