Wait for It

The average person spends five years waiting.  If that didn't just make a single tear fall down your cheek or make your head wanna pop off, you have more patience than I will ever know in a lifetime.  Five years is a really long time.  I will have spent more time in traffic than I...

Impact

I was thinking about all of the people I've ever met in this lifetime and it got me wondering what kind of impression I give.  How do I make people feel?  What kind of vibe do I emit?  There is so much concern about which path to choose but I'm equally curious about the path... Continue Reading →

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

The older I get, I find myself becoming more and more opposed to change.  Is this an age thing?  A mentality thing?  A combo?  Our lives are bubbles and we live happily inside of them fearing anything that might pop our closed-off shelter of a cocoon.  I actually have a shred of empathy for old...

The All Girls School

I moved to Cincinnati the summer before 7th grade.  I learned very quickly that I would most likely be going to an all-girls Catholic High School.  That was the "thing" there.  It was in that moment I figured out we had actually moved to Hell. All girls?  Let's be honest, half of the reason I... Continue Reading →

Forever Young

  If someone would have warned me what being a "grown up" truly entailed, I would have taken a detour to NeverNeverLand in hopes of becoming Tink's protégé.  Fact. I, like Kevin Mcallister, could not wait to grow up and live alone. But on graduation day at Indiana University, I didn't get that grown up feeling.... Continue Reading →
