The Famous Women Project(7/19/2017)-Lucretia, the wife of Collatinus I agreed to participate in the Famous Women Project, because it sounded really fun.

I’m still sleeping way too much, although that may be more a feature of the lack of daylight and other factors that make Oct to Dec usually blah for me.
