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
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
There isn't much that feels better than moving forward. When I set out to do something and then do it, there's just a feeling I get that's incredibly intoxicating. Productivity is something like an addiction to me, and I'm a fiend. That's why I'm so obsessed with lists--even if it's a list of small things,… Continue reading Progress
Home is where the heart is. My home--my family--is my everything. Really, it's funny I say that, because anytime I decide to move, I purposely make the decision to stay living halfway across the US from where my family is.

Like they have all the time in the world tucked safely into their pocket and life is just some video game they have all the cheats to. So I hate to be… Continue reading Get Your Shit Together
Day after day, each and every one of us has to deal with pressure. Right? I mean--unless you're held up in a mansion on a tropical island with money shooting out of your ass, chances are you feel pressure. It's a part of life as common and necessary as every gulp of water and every… Continue reading Pressure.
Hi peoples, After my last post, Black Ink and Dark Writing, I began thinking long and hard about a happy post I could write.
