Chapter 2 – “I just wanna be with you”

Back in 2010, my best friend and I had been friends for about 5 years. I’m not going to lie, years 3-6 were pretty rough for us as we navigated what being in a committed friendship meant to each other. We both had to learn countless lessons in communication, patience, love, forgiveness, and acceptance. To be fair, we’re still learning, but we’ve gotten MUCH better … Continue reading Chapter 2 – “I just wanna be with you”

Chapter 1 – “I just want to go!”

I’ve watched roughly 40 different documentaries, not … Continue reading The world around me

2016 – Explore

I can’t believe I’m already thinking about next year! I am SO on top of it! Well, not really. With my luck (and procrastination skills), this post probably won’t be up until June 2016. (note: I started this post in October 2015) The realization that I was in the 4th quarter of 2015 though shocked me. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone … Continue reading 2016 – Explore
