17. I Already Want to Slap You
Hey everyone! Yes, we're alive. Well, actually we're just surviving. The year 2020 has hit the team really hard. Every time we thought we were back on our feet, something has happened, and continues to happen, but we're desperately trying to get back into the swing of things. Anyways, this episode is full of our usual shennanigans, with Nat being EXTREMELY hyper and Meka bringing that nap energy. This episode is a bit old if you can't tell, but the order must continue! We hope you enjoy this one, and keep an eye out for the next episode! Find the ladies at their respective social medias!

A Teaspoon of Good Exclusive: What Really Happened
Hi everyone. Nat decided to take a slight detour from uploading the normal episode, (don't worry, new episode drops TOMORROW), she did want to talk about what happened in regards to her guide dog, Dodson. From moving, to the hospital, to the horror and fear she experienced, it was too much emotion to put to words in typical blog fashion, so she decided to talk about it instead.
