Are you being taken advantage of?

When you take a good look at this kid’s face, don’t you feel sorry for him? I know I do. I’ve had that same facial reaction whenever someone used to use me. I call it the biggest drawback of being too  nice a person. In fact, these same people who overly use you also turn on you,  especially…

Best Diet Noodles:Try Bangkok Curry at Noodles & Company

I was in downtown Silver Spring this weekend meeting up with my old college bud  Rachel. Besides traipsing throughout the area, we were beginning to get hungry.
