Isn’t it funny how often we lie for silly and pointless reasons?
I find that I do this a lot, often throwing in my extensive acting skills in order to make the lies seem more plausible. Sometimes I lie because I am trying to be polite and other times I really don’t know why the lies come out, they just do.

I am trying to do more things out of my comfort zone in 2019, and last week proved to be much more uncomfortable than usual.
