At the whim of others - I normally don’t skip dinner. I think somewhere deep inside I knew that if I did eat, I wouldn’t go to the gym. I’ve had a rough time getting back to “normalcy” after 2 months in Europe. My patience with myself was wearing thin so I changed and headed to the gym. 2 hours and […]
Cat-spiration - I’ve never been particularly fond of cats. I don’t fully trust them. Dogs seem oblivious enough to never purposefully be malicious. Cats seem smart enough to know how to draw lines I might not see coming. There are two cats though that have captured my attention and love. Sadly, they are my coworker’s cats! I’m […]
Misophonia - I was randomly poking through 23andme after getting an email from them about new relatives when I saw this report. At long last – I could prove my uncontrollable hatred of sound! Truly, this was a RELIEF to see. For as long as I can remember, this has been an issue for me. I always […]
Sifting through digital clutter - What follows are my favorite pictures thus far from my travels through Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland with my mom. I’ve been in Europe nomading since March 10th which blows my mind! I’ve seen so much that it’s hard for me to process it all until I look back on these pictures. 90% of these are […]
Keeping a list - Having been to Europe numerous times now, I have been fortunately to become quite familiar with some big name artists! I can now easily recognize the likes of Picasso, Monet, Manet, Degas, Rodin, Pissarro, Pollock Munch, Courbet, Cezanne, Dali, Gainsborough, etc. After exploring Madrid & Barcelona part of this past month, I’ve slowly started to […]
The life you’ve imagined - “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.” ― Henry David Thoreau Have you ever heard that quote? I always loved it – a simple message about being genuine and true. I’ve come to find it disorienting in […]
invisibility cloak - I chopped my hair off. I remember fantasizing as a young girl watching my brother and his friends play baseball – why can’t my hair be like that? I had a bob then but I can still vividly tap into that memory of wanting it all off. Over the last 2 years or so, I […]
palate cleanser -   Coming off of round after round of audio tours with too much information, miniature sized font descriptions that don’t do a piece of art justice, and gorgeous sights like La Sagrada Familia, my brain and my little heart were tired by the time Friday hit. I had maxed out my capacity to take in […]
The leftovers - I was walking with my mom around Lisbon today without a destination in mind. I’ve been here for nearly two weeks and was soaking up the beautiful sun after experiencing more rainy days here. We have seen so much of the city and beyond that it was fantastic just to connect with the energy, sounds, […]
25 - March 6, 2018 12:04am I can feel 25 years of life dancing between my fingers. It feels new and strong – like it can be trusted. I choose to trust it. It feels electric. 24 is ready to be retired. 24 never quite fit me – I didn’t pay much attention to it. It was […]
