Take a Chance

Way back in 2008, I was sixteen years old and on vacation with my family in Massachusetts. My dad and I got into an argument over movies - he had already seen Iron Man, and insisted it was better than the film I had twice seen already, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

Unusual Skills

You can know someone for decades, and still be surprised when they throw out seemingly random facts about themselves.

Graduation

Graduation season is upon us once again. Caps flying through the air, tassels waving to and fro, and young minds full of dreams ready to take on the world. I faced both graduations - high school and college - with a measured mix of trepidation and excitement. Eagerness for the next chapter, and fear for... Continue Reading →

Simple

The first whiff of coffee in the morning. A new book on a rainy day. Fleece-lined leggings in winter. Singing a song you love at the top of your lungs. Popcorn at the movies. Hitting snooze on your alarm and not having to actually get up. Finishing a really strenuous workout. Finding out your favorite... Continue Reading →
