But this is the way I’ve lived my life so far. It’s not perfect but it is 100% me. 1. Moved out of my comfort zone I could have stayed in America and dated in my hometown but instead…

2018 in review

Boy oh boy, this year went by so fast. There’s a part of me that believes that time goes by faster as we get older. This year flew by without me even noticing. So much has happened and I’ve changed in so many ways. Of course I made a lot of mistakes a long the way but I grew from them too. We also had a blast enjoying our free time. Sander and I went out and did so many…

My Childhood Holiday Memories

Everyone has holiday memories that come rushing back when December rolls around. And some of them are the most amazing of times. As a child, I got to experience many good memories that I still treasure today because things got a little chaotic as I got older. I wanted to take a stroll down memory lane to share some of them with you. Sitting under the Christmas Tree I had a collection of Pokémon figures that I took with me…

A letter to my favorite authors

I may not be good at it but I love writing. I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember. I loved it more than hanging out with children my age. In highschool I wrote in my free time. I was an active member in the creative writing club until it’s founders graduated and the club disbanded. When our high school created its first creative writing class, I was 1 of 5 students to sign up. In college I took…

What I’m looking forward to this autumn

My complicated relationship with creativity

I’ve always embraced creativity. Anyone who knows me understands that the way I am is fueled by a passion for storytelling. When I do anything, it has to be for the story. It’s the largest reason I play video games and read the types of books I do. It’s all about the story. I love to keep this a positive space but I recently watched a video that struck a chord with me. I’ve been watching Sorelle Amore for a…

Advice for my 20 year old self

It’s been 10 years since I was 20 years old but it feels like it’s been so much longer than that. I was young and naive with the whole world before me. Of course, like most at that age, I was shy and unsure of what to do with myself. We all hope for someone to guide us to making better decisions. There are so many things I wish I could tell my younger self but here are a few.…
