Simpin' Ain't Easy
Play • 1 hr

We've all been one, no need to hide it! This week Steph and CoolBlkNerd talk about their simpin' experiences, how simpin' can bleed into other parts of your life, and what you can do to stop the simpin'. We also dig into apartment hunting, hip hop dance classes, and plate shopping at Target.
