This Time of Year is Magic

I’m all about focusing on the little things. Thinking about what makes me happy has gotten me through these turbulent last few years. This time of year, in particular, is magic. There’s something about this moment when Thanksgiving is right around the corner, Christmas ads have been playing for over a month (thankfully, I loveContinue reading “This Time of Year is Magic”

When Lies Become Truth, Keep Calling out the Lie

When they don’t like something they kick you out and throw away the key. When they don’t like you they call you a bad person because of your qualities. When things bad things happen supporters will rally around you. When freedom of speech is tested the people will fight back by calling out the wrongs.Continue reading “When Lies Become Truth, Keep Calling out the Lie”

Meeting in the Middle

As many people have stated, we’re living in difficult times. There seems to be a shooting more often than not and nothing is being done to stop these vile people from carrying out these terrible attacks. I was overhearing what was happening on the news the other day since I don’t watch it anymore, andContinue reading “Meeting in the Middle”

Stumbles in Speech

I am a person who stutters. I’ve stuttered my entire life. I’ve been in speech therapy. I’ve taken medication to help reduce my stutter. I’ve lied to myself, saying that I don’t have a stutter. My stutter hasn’t gone away. I’m now 25 and I still stutter. Some people grow out of their stutter. I’mContinue reading “Stumbles in Speech”

Unexpected Detours

I’ve been blogging for a few years now. And if I’m being honest, some weeks I don’t know what I should write about. I used to plan out what I would say but now I just wing it the day of. I know I should be better at planning things and get back into theContinue reading “Unexpected Detours”

#MeToo, One Year Later

One year ago, I was in a hotel room in New York City, about to leave and take the N train from 42nd street to 23rd street to see the Flatiron building, when I got a notification on my phone from CNN. There was a breaking story on Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker. TheContinue reading “#MeToo, One Year Later”

Believe Women & Believe Survivors

I’ve been trying to think about how to write this post all day. Last week, this country went through a roller coaster of emotions with the Senate Hearings. Watching Dr. Ford give her testimony and answer questions was emotional for me and many women around the country. She’s an amazing woman for being brave andContinue reading “Believe Women & Believe Survivors”

Crisp in the Air

It’s been fall for two days and I can already feel the crisp in the air. It makes the hair on my arms stand up. I breathe in deep breaths to take as much as this magic in as I can. This is my favorite time of year because it’s gone in a blink ofContinue reading “Crisp in the Air”

Autumn Leaves in Later Summer

Walking through the woods, I admire the changing leaves on the aspen trees. It looks like fall but feels like summer. I take off my sweater and look at the view that’s similar to the moon. Wide open space with very little human life equates to the feeling of being on another planet. The leavesContinue reading “Autumn Leaves in Later Summer”
