The Little Things

I've always believed that it's the little things that make the big moments in life. In the last month and a half, that belief for me has only proved to be more true than ever. Almost 2 months ago, I quit my job to focus on art (my dreams) full-time. I then came home to… Continue reading The Little Things

Why I’ve Chosen to Restart my Whole Life

I don't quite know how to start this post. so many different routes to take, but I feel like this (whatever I'm doing) isn't the right way. I could start by talking about happiness and how we all have our different takes on the enigmatic term... I could talk about how life's too short to… Continue reading Why I’ve Chosen to Restart my Whole Life

Sick of people doubting me

But it’s fine. Because every time I hear doubt, it only puts fuel to the flame. It only pushes me harder. Only pushes me harder to prove them wrong. Stop telling me to play it safe. Stop lecturing me about putting all my eggs in one basket, and stop telling me that my dream is… Continue reading Sick of people doubting me

I think I just moved back to TN

It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything. So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well.… Continue reading I think I just moved back to TN

I Quit my Job to be a Full-time Dreamer

How do you make your dreams come true? Is there some secret formula that's been written and hidden in a safe in Mr. Krabs' office? I certainly hope there isn't. I'd be pretty pissed. Since I was a teenager, I've been pursuing my dreams, and for the last six years, I've been pursuing them in… Continue reading I Quit my Job to be a Full-time Dreamer

A Letter to Myself

Dear You, No one in my life has ever caused me more problems than you. They say nobody changes. With you, I’ve found that’s true, but it’s not. I’ve watched you change in the best way, yet remain the same in the worst. All you care about, all you see, is yourself. The hunger of… Continue reading A Letter to Myself

Why you should never give up

Albert Einstein said, “I have tried 99 times and have failed, but on the 100th time came success.” If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that we all have dreams, and we all have goals. Whether they be microscopic or too grand to wrap your head around, they reside within all of… Continue reading Why you should never give up

Changes

At some point in our lives, we've all had someone tell us "Change is good." Some poor souls have had to suffer as those hounding words were repeatedly hammered into them (ahem, teenage me, ahem). It took my angsty self awhile to understand and accept those words. And they were hammered with necessity--I was a… Continue reading Changes

Saying Goodbye and Signing Off

As a few of you know, for the past 10 days I’ve been on a trip in California. It’s definitely been one of the most adventurous trips I’ve been on—driving from Laguna to San Francisco to Eureka, then hiking all over northern Cali and staying in a camper... it has been a very loving, happy,… Continue reading Saying Goodbye and Signing Off

Poem: Words like Weapons

An assault rifle loaded with words holds the potential for murder Lines and rhymes like live rounds fire at life without a single sound With a single sentence one can teach love or place a period and simply end it Just one stanza can compel an army like a puppeteer and forces otherworldly With the… Continue reading Poem: Words like Weapons
