Late to the Party

So it's been a while. The site has gone through a couple iterations including a switch to Squarespace where I blogged a bit, but was silly enough to not save copies when I switched back to wordpress. Oops. My bad. Anyway, catch up time! So for some quick bullet points as to where I've been, Read more [...]

Fooling around on mental playgrounds

I have always wanted to be the best. It's not uncommon for people to feel uneasy about criticism. It's natural to not want to open yourself up about it. I'm no different. I tend to remember the critical moments first before the happier ones and whether I mean for them to or not, those negative moments Read more [...]

On with the show

The last entry that I wrote is mocking me. The entry that said I was going to write more and was finally going to get serious about this blog is just sitting there, waving its hands in the air so it's impossible for me to miss. Jerk. I want to blame it on the whirlwind summer, and while this summer Read more [...]

Surprises Are The Devil’s Work

There's nothing special about me or my experiences. It was a thought that plagued me as I tried to consider what angle I could take to talk about Read more [...]

Letting Go of Fear

It has taken a long time for it to sink in, but I think I'm finally starting to grasp that I'm afraid. Fear is a truly nebulous thing and there are so many things to be afraid of, but I'm not afraid of being physically hurt so much as I'm afraid of failing. We are taught from a young age that there is Read more [...]

Novels that will punch you right in the feels

I was thinking about it last night when I really should have been sleeping and tried to figure out what kind of books I would recommend to people if they asked. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be to keep the list short. There are so many books out there and a lot of the ones I left off the Read more [...]
