Why the World Series Matters

Oh, two posts in a row?! Yes. Two. In. A. Row. I've been thinking lots this week! As I'm sure everyone ever knows, the Cubs won the World Series last night. The Cubs haven't won the World Series in 108 years. ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT YEARS, YOU GUYS. So we can see why this is [...]

Humor As A Coping Mechanism!

It's a Wednesday! I swear I'll get back on schedule sometime. But now is not that time. Now is the time that I get to talk at you on a Wednesday. Like most people with deep-rooted (often concealed) anxiety, I use humor as a coping/defense mechanism in the face of any icky situations. It's just [...]

Everyone Is Offended

Happy Wednesday. We're gonna talk today. Right now, I attend community college. One of my classes is a mandatory, sort of self-actualization, sort of career-planning class.

Photos and Faces

People are important to me. Let's take a journey through some people I've photographed and why. My brother Sean is one of my favorite subjects.

I’m At A Standstill!

Happiest of Mondays to you all, my friends. I hope we're all getting geared up for great weeks. The weather has been great, sunny, makes life a little more enjoyable. Hopefully none of you have gotten so burnt you can't sleep yet (been there). Sunscreen is an important tool. Also, ticks are gross, so bug-repellent [...]

What I Learned From That One Time Quincey Threw Up In My Car

It is Wednesday. It is also summer break for those of you who get the privilege of the school system's schedule. And a couple of weeks ago was my last day of "officially" being a nanny. So, the hot weather mixed with the slew of emotions from the end of my two-year-long job have brought [...]
