  • I am often confronted with my younger friends’ problems. That’s okay, to an extent, because they’re like my little sisters, sort of. But I’ll talk to them over text, and I’ll send back a heartfelt, attempt-at-counseling and hopefully encouraging text, full of words and thoughts and prayers and even hugs, and then, after a few…

  • I was at the second job tonight, and it was sloow. I mean, reeeally slow.So I got to chat with my coworker, who already seemed cool.And then she asked me if I was in college, and I said no, and she said that she wasn’t either.Wait, what?Nope.Same graduating year, and she’s not in college for…

  • Characters: Joy, my (youngest) sister. Yours truly. (Photo credit to Joy) And the last, but certainly not least, character in this little episode: my dad’s faithful blue Camry. Notice the battery charger giving moral support to Dad’s faithful blue Camry. Once upon a time, Joy and I planned to visit my brother Zed, his wife…

  • I’ve done a bad job. I’ve kind of made this blog about “being okay” with not going to college right now. But I’m already okay with that! I’ve gotten past that point personally, and I’m more than willing to write about that, hear your thoughts, and give you encouragement on that. But this blog isn’t…

  • This is the tree that marks the change from summer to fall for me. The seasons change and I see it as I’m running out the door to go elsewhere. I think back on all the years we’ve lived here, what my dreams aspired to as I saw that tree growing up, and how much…

  • This conundrum was on my mind recently, actually. My family has taken many a lovely, leafy hike, often in the midst of the beautiful fall colors. Now that I have my own driver’s license and of course, some extra time to pursue such adventures, I realized I might be mistakenly taken for an out of town…

  • Just cold, grey expectancy. After Christmas, so no colors and songs to brighten the cold. After New Year’s, so no promises brashly made to color the future with hope when everything else seems so grey.But we had “Little G”. He’s truly a “bundle of joy”. The above is a snippet of a writing exercise I did.…

  • I’ve been spoiled and I don’t think I can ever go back. One of the ways I occupy my quarter-life time is to work. I’ve been at a locally-owned gourmet coffee shop for two years now. It’s delicious. All of it! Working at a coffee shop gives me time to think about all this coffee…

  • “Adventure is out there!” -Ellie from Pixar’s Up! Doesn’t it seem that everyone’s leaving? They’re all off to find the adventure that is “out there”. Except you, of course! Your father’s on a business trip to wonderful and well-missed Arizona, and you must stay home. Your younger friend is finally getting out and going to college,…
