I Cut My Hair Off?! & other things

It’s Pre-Friday 😀 That means it’s time to plan for the weekend, right? Or take part in one of my favorites, Thankful Thursdays. I am so thankful for so much in my life. Couldn’t possibly be more eloquently worded, could it? But in all seriousness, guys. Everything from my job, to my dog, to my…

My Food Comes From Where?!

Hi there, Well, it isn’t as early in the week as I had hoped, but I think it’s well suited to follow after a holiday most Americans spend consuming lots of meat. Ready for an opinionated post? Good, neither am I Let’s just start with the whammy and get it out of the way, shall…

twenty-seventeen

Holy change batman. Honestly, what a year 2016 was. I don’t know a single person who didn’t grow or learn a lot in this past year. Unlike last year, and the past several years, I have decided to make New Year’s Resolutions. Okay, really, they are just a bunch of goals for the year. Now,…

Have you ever…

Have you ever asked yourself “why do I seem to want everything?” then quickly followed that question up with “well, why can’t I have everything?” and proceeded to figure out how you could, in fact, have everything? And I’m not talking about the five year old thoughts of I want everything in the store. I’m…

Sisterhood Matters

A bit about nonhuman primate relationships and how humans can learn from them in the area of female-female friendships!

The End of the Beginning

December. What a perfect time to talk about endings, or beginnings, or the ending of a beginning? Maybe I’ll make sense at some point in this ;P As I shared over the summer, I am a part of a Native American tribe, and receive some funding each semester for my college classes. I also am required…

When a Brief Mental Breakdown Leads to a Beneficial Life Change

We are getting to that time of year where everyone talks about what they’re thankful for and what they’re looking forward to in the next year. It’s often people’s favorite time of year: holiday season.  Would you agree? To be frank, I don’t. But let’s stay positive on this first day of October (one of…

Daily Life with Depression

Let’s be real, depression sucks. Hi guys, don’t be too startled by the title or worried about this being a downer post. My goal today is to give some words to the Wise on this Wednesday about how my depression looks on a day to day basis. Keep in mind, depression looks different for everyone and…

To All Those Teenagers

To any of you who feel pressured to go to college, especially right after high school. . To anyone who feels the need to have a career and life path picked out by 18 or 20 or 25. To all young people with old people telling them to be young but expecting them to grow up in the…

some words to my Lord

Recently, I have had a renewed spirit and passion and clarity of sight for falling in love with who Jesus is and what God wants from us. My prayer life has been more thoughtful than ever before, and in journaling the other day I happened to kind of float off into a thankful praise of…

Day Twelve

We like poetry, yes we do. I like poetry, how about you? I’m clever right? Well I wrote this little poem on the twelfth of January, and to be honest it has nothing to do with said date but I like the idea of naming it that so here it is 😀 Short days, shorter…

Short Poetry

Hi friends! With Christmas fast approaching I thought I’d gift you with a short post. tee hee No, no this isn’t a play on my height (I’m only 4’10”) This isn’t even what I think of when I think of a poem, but this isn’t school and I have no rules in my creative writing. It…
