Hoveringclose

PPP took me to the wrong side of insanity. Now I'm just hovering close. I aim to be the antithesis of 'Capable Louise'. The voice/unflattering photo of reality to make you feel better amid a sea of photoshopped adverts. To share failures, gaffs, what I look like when I wake up (spoiler: sh1t/insane/ludicrous) hoping that having confidence in my imperfections, laughing while making a mess of things, might help others judge themselves less harshly and feel confidence in their own imperfect selves.
