I recently went to my old middle school and high school to donate copies of my book and do a little bit of promotion (at the middle school) to hopefully get them interested in reading Standing By. Going to the schools was surreal, of course, since nothing has really changed inside of them. It's even … Continue reading Nostalgia
Hi strangers! It's been a while. I was planning to announce a short hiatus from my blog because I'm just burnt out from everything that's been going on lately, but then I never got around to doing it. So here is just an update on what's been going on in my life these last few … Continue reading Hello. It’s Me.
Hey friends. It's been a while... like three weeks? Yeah, that sounds about right. Apparently, when you're a blogger, you're not "supposed" to point out that you've been absent for a while, but I don't typically follow the "rules of blogging" either. Why? Well, everyone is different and you shouldn't be told how to run … Continue reading It’s been lovely, but I have to scream now
I've been a real hermit lately, even on the Internet. Assuming you're all still here, you've noticed this is my first post in a few weeks. Sorry about that. I just sort of lost myself into a deep state of introversion that I just plain didn't feel like coming up with any blog posts. As … Continue reading Introversion
Life will knock us down... multiple times and in many different ways. The best way to get through it is to just stand up, shake off the dust and press on, but it's not always easy. At first it's easier to just stay on the ground where you are. You might get upset and cry … Continue reading Faith To Fall Back On

They're short and to the point - just bloggers telling their readers what is currnelty happening in their lives. Like the 'facts' or 'favorites' posts, I love that they're giving their readers an … Continue reading currently // march
Okay, story time once again! Three years ago today a freak accident happened that left me extra cautious of falling objects and of hitting my head. Ladies and gentlemen, I was hit by a falling 50lb. baby crib while working in the stockroom of Kmart, thankfully not on my head. What happened was that I happened … Continue reading The Baby Crib That Fell
This morning I came across a post entitled "Worrying About Worry" by Caroline of 'Beautiful Life with Cancer' and as a chronic worrywart myself, I had to read it. What really inspired me about this post is that it's not only me who knows that I shouldn't worry about things, yet does anyway. I mean, … Continue reading Worrying About Worry… it’s not just me!
Growing up is an odd process. When you think about it, sometimes we do not realize the process as it's happening. Sure, we notice our own growing as people, both physically and mentally, since it is happening to us directly, but sometimes it just hits you that: "Oh my gosh, I'm an adult." This has been … Continue reading Realization
