    I have to admit, every time I read your posts I feel so motivated for my own blogs. Between balancing uni, research projects and my blogs, it can be quite tedious but you inspire me to continue writing and posting?? Blogging is definitely my passion and I am so happy I began reading your blogs where we all get to read about your passions too!
