Brain Pickings – My new Sunday ritualĀ 

I grew up in a Christian household (for the most part). My dad was on-again, off-again religious, but my mom was always on. She had a strong faith and believed in holding those truths close. She instilled in my sister and I a strong faith as well from a very early age. However, I didn’t grow up going to traditional church until I was in … Continue reading Brain Pickings – My new Sunday ritualĀ 

Choices vs. Fate vs. Something Bigger

Sometimes I wonder if I’m being primed for something. I wonder if my life has unfolded in this way because of a great, master plan, or was it all just a series of choices, like a pinball bouncing off various obstacles until it finds its final home.

As a refresher, my focus this year is concentrated on four main areas: Writing, Traveling, Dancing, and Music. Of course I’m also trying to grow and develop in other areas of my life as well, but those are … Continue reading 2015 The Experience – Q1 Recap

The F Word: FEMINIST

Feminist. This word, this idea, this movement has really been plaguing my life recently. I’ve been trying to think of the first time I ever heard that word, and I can’t come up with anything before High School. I’m not even sure if it was that early. Actually, I think the first time I encountered it was watching 10 Things I Hate About You. I … Continue reading The F Word: FEMINIST
