To Do Item for Week 2: Check in on loved ones

Hello hello rockstars, It is 8:46 p.m. right now, and I’m pretty much going to post as soon as I finish writing. Maybe if I actually posted at a consistent time then people would follow me and pay attention to the things I say… Alas, what is this blog besides a glorified journal, anyway? The…

2023 is the year I get my pilot, motorcycle, and racing license

Hello babes! Right now I’m sitting in the comfiest sweat pants (shoutout to Calvin Klein. Without fail, every Black Friday, I end up buying CK sweats. They’re just so comfy?!) and drinking a midnight coffee. I actually am taking a break from work (yes, I know it’s Saturday) to write this blog post. A few…

Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home

Hello rockstars,  This blog post should have been called “The World of Harry Potter: Child’s Dream or Oppressive Police State” because it’s the original title of the blog post I was going to write with my dear friend Shane. I got the news earlier this week that Shane is no longer with us. I wanted…

A passing side character in someone else’s life

Hello everyone 🙂 This is also not a travel blog post, sorrrry. But those of you that read my most recent post, learned that I just started volunteering at the Strathmore Music Center. I’d been going to the Strathmore for years as a kid – for festivals, for outdoor movies, and for music performances. In…

Middle of the Night Thoughts

Hello rockstars, Right now, it is 1:46am on November 4, 2022. I’m going to skip through the “wow it’s been so long” commentary and go straight to the point! I was reading this book, “The Island of Missing Trees” through recommendation by my lovely mom, and so far, I love the writing style and I’m…

Lessons in Chemistry = Lessons in Life

It’s a rare feeling – to be so engrossed in something that you want to keep it going, but all the while being heartbroken because you know that when it’s over, you’ll be devastated. Recently I caught covid – for which I am still recovering – so it was my time to quarantine in a…

Happy 10,000 Days to meee!

Yesterday I reached a crazy milestone — I’ve been alive for 10000 days. Isn’t that absolutely crazy?? Malcolm Gladwell said that if you do something for 10000 hours, then you become an expert at it. I have the opposite situation, where 10000 days have passed and I have spent 240000 being myself. I wouldn’t say…

Celestial Events and Ordinary Moments

Do you ever have those days where you’re filled with a warmth and you don’t even know why? That was me yesterday. On a Monday, no doubt, it was a strange occurrence. But that’s pretty much what my day today was. I woke up early and went to work, I did some writing and editing,…

Chance Encounters and Pocket of Perfect Moments

Hellllooo friends! So on a scale from 1-10, my day today was “not great” – rate that on the scale as you will. But I got to leave work a bit early today and my evening turned out alright! I ended up napping for quite a bit after I got home, and had a few…

“Let me soak in everything about this moment”

Happy Sunday lovelies, I hope you’re all having a good day and had a good weekend. Today my day is lowkey so far, I slept in and then went to a locally crafted maker’s market – what a mouthful! – with my friend Mark, but since it was raining, it was a pretty quick loop…
