Hello, dear readers! Lately, I’ve been on a mental roller coaster. I’ve gone from feeling great–like super confident, pumped, and in control–to feeling like I’m wallowing in quicksand. Every time I move, the thoughts in my brain would only drag me down further. While I’m continuing to make more personal changes in my life–seeing that… Continue reading At the Bat with my Brain
Hello, dear readers! I know you’re busy, but this is important. Extremely important. Election day is fast approaching, and I’m getting anxious. To be honest, I’m well past sick and tired of the mud-slinging ads and debates. In all honesty, I just want to get vote in as quickly as possible. But. But if I… Continue reading Holding the Conch Shell
Hello, dear readers! I’m currently outside, sitting by the firepit. There’s plenty of sun, puffy white clouds, and blue sky. Birds sing for mates or to claim their territory. Bogan and Bentley are at the end of their leashes, eager to be by us. Gramma and Grandpa are clearing out the detritus underneath our row… Continue reading Graduation Preparation
Hello, dear readers! My twenty-fifth birthday is steadily approaching. While I’m excited to turn a year older, it’s also dawning on me that I am getting closer to hitting thirty. (What? I can’t be getting old yet!) While I’m still twenty-four, I want to reflect on this poigant year in my life. Good things, like… Continue reading I am 24, going on 25

If you’re wondering if I’m talking about the amazing Broadway play, you’re right! My family and I are going to go see Hamilton. When Abbie texted me, I thought, No, Abbie, Mom said that we couldn’t… Continue reading “What’s your name, man?”
Hello, dear readers! I’m a writer. These days, I feel like I’m severely loosing my touch with slipping poetry into my prose. I struggle to write poems. (Granted, my Microsoft Word 2011 isn’t working on my new laptop–so I guess I’ll have to upgrade.) Still, writing is where I created worlds and characters as a… Continue reading Censor****
Hello, dear readers! In 2001, my family and I moved about four blocks to our new–and much older–house. I kind of remember the moving process: we would haul some stuff to our new house, and then go to sleep in our old house. I was reading Old Yeller at the time, and was ten years old. Abbie,… Continue reading #8 Things I Love about my Parent’s House
Hello, dear readers! Three days ago, I successfully drove myself to and from my recent alma mater, the University of Minnesota Morris. While this may not initially seem like a big deal, it’s important to me. See, this is the first time I’ve driven a somewhat lengthy distance–at least in my mind–by myself. 🙂 I… Continue reading Ah, so *this* is how you Adult!
Hi, dear readers! It’s been at least a month since I last posted. I think I just got swamped with work and life–and if I’m honest, laziness–which caused me to not go on WP as often. Clearly, a lot’s happened to me since July. First, I went on vacation with my family in late July.… Continue reading Family Vacations, a Stolen Laptop, a new Haircut: Oh My!
Hello, dear readers! Today, I get to see my sister preform. For many years, Abbie has been in dance.
