On Friday night I finished the first season of Netflix’s Dear White People, it’s based off the movie of the same name and from what I hear has a similar plot. I have never seen the movie, but I was … Continue reading
March and April were kind of crazy months for me. Nothing was really busier. It was just the usual chaos and it seemed that as I found more personal stability some of the creativity was drying up. There was lots … Continue reading
Over the past weekend I spent the weekend at the GO Conference in Worcester, MA. It was a meaningful, refreshing experience. I don’t know that I can say it was life changing, my temptation word after doing almost anything out … Continue reading
It’s been over a month since I last posted, November 2oth to be exact. It’s been a busy month since then. In that time Thanksgiving happened, I kept busy with school, I hosted a game night, participated in a cookie swap, … Continue reading
Real writing is hard. Real writing–the kind of writing that comes from a truly authentic place within you seems somewhere close to impossible. It’s not that I have a lack of things to say. I have strong opinions about things … Continue reading
I know it’s been a while since I last posted, and I fully intend to get back into a good rhythm with this blog. A brief update: I’m as tired as ever, emotions are stabilizing, every day my teenagers do … Continue reading
It seems like everywhere we look there’s someone who’s traveling and having all these grand adventures. We see our friends doing “amazing” missionary work, going on trips every few months, and being their own boss. We look at our … Continue reading
So it’s been a very successful first week of training, everyone is so kind and I’m learning a ton. Husband is asleep now so I’ve just been cruising the internet and checking out the blogosphere when I found out that … Continue reading
After All This Time? Always. There’s a lot I could write about and perhaps some things I should write about, but today I want to talk about: The Boy Who Lived. That’s right folks Harry Potter, a story that has … Continue reading
Hello lovely blogging community!
Well, it has been so much fun blogging lately. Really and truly. It’s been such an encouragement to see the likes and followers grow and even to have people commenting on my posts lately (thank you so much!! I appreciate all of it). While other writing isn’t going as strong as I’d like (fiction is nonexistent, poetry is slow and painful), I wanted to share a new opportunity I have.
With that I am also sharing more of who I am with all of you. Well, my last name anyway, so I’m trusting you all with this information. I think it’s a big step, but a step in the right direction. I feel like this year I’m really stepping into professional life. I’m starting a new job at a charter school, my very first full time job. I’m growing and focusing my blog into something really beautiful (at least I think so). And now for my news:
I’ve started writing for Odyssey! I launched with a community this Tuesday, you can read my first article here. Faithful readers will notice that it’s an edited version of my post about camping, but from here on after each site will have their own unique content. I can’t wait to explore more ideas and see what comes of this new opportunity.
I’m so excited for how I’m going to grow as a writer over this year, how I’m going to grow as a professional, as a person.
Thanks for reading!
Peace, love, and glitter, always the glitter,
