They still tell stories about the time before, when we all lived Above. On top of the massive pieces of land that dot the face of our planet. The seven continents that are spread across the hemispheres of Earth. Some people still live up there, but most of us survive much closer to the core of our Earth.

The local homicide unit was called in and the unidentified man was taken to the police station to be autopsied.

I’ve always been a daydreamer. When I was a little girl, I was someone you could've described as having their head in the clouds. Constantly traveling to faraway lands in my mind, imagining all of the different adventures I would have and all of the exciting people I would meet. It’s funny how all of that daydreaming has manifested itself as a powerful tool to lead the kind of life I used to dream of.
Boss. It's More Than a Title, it's a State of Mind.
Let's get our facts straight. Moms are bad a** bosses. Each mom out there hustles, day-in and day-out to give their children the life that they deserve. It looks different in each mom's circumstance, and every mom has their own special brand of boss mom magic. They use their powers to teach us extraordinary life lessons. From self-care, to love advice, to moral guidance. Moms provide us with the foundation for our future, and we are lucky to have these boss ladies in our lives.

Dear Gemini, You are amazing. Your natural curiosity, thoughtful nature and adaptable personality, inspire me on the daily. Others might know you for your intelligence, and ability to carry a good conversation, but those who are lucky to know you well, are privy to the secret life of the Gemini.
