Earth Day 2022

Earth Day 2022

Happy Earth Day! (By the time you read this, it will already have passed – if you were unaware, Earth Day was on 22 April 2022!) In celebration, I thought we’d dive deeper as to why we celebrate it!  So, what is Earth Day? It was […]

It’s been so long since I have written an entry for ‘Urie Diaries,’ so I thought today would be a good chance to revisit the series. The 9th of April was the beginning of our Easter break, so I thought I’d come home. At first, I […]
