So the “new” year for me so far has been somewhat rough. I started the year doubtful and hopeless of where God had taken me so far. I recently have had a rough few months at my job. New Year's day I was at the beach with my friend, and I just felt stuck and drowned in my hopelessness. I kept thinking,  “How can God have som...

Do you ever feel restless? That weeks and weeks pass, and you barely have a moment of alone time? Let me follow up with do you ever feel guilty for telling people no? 

Let me set a scene for you: You’ve had a long week and made plans for the coming weekend, but you really need to stay home and rest. You’ve made promises to g...

So I’ve been feeling weird the last few weeks. I’ve been adjusting to my new job and schedule. I’m not in school anymore, and that alone is kinda odd. I’m still setting up the apartment, which seems crazy cause I’ve been here for almost two months. Even still, I continue to feel unsettled. I think I have been aware of the i...

Jesus: A cool guy right? I’ve known about Jesus for a long time. Meaning, I remember hearing about him when I was in first grade. Going to a Christian school you can’t help but hear about Jesus. I mean Jesus is part of the foundation of the school. Now, I personally loved my school. I had the most amazing teachers, standout...

I never realized how much I liked Target until I couldn’t go there regularly. When I moved to New York, I realized going to Target took a days trip because the only locations were in East Harlem and Brooklyn. Since then, Target has opened smaller stores throughout Manhattan (woohoo). I now live less than a ten-minute walk f...

This blog post is a follow-up and continuation of last weeks “Quit Playing Games.” I recommend reading last weeks post before this one. 

Welcome Back! Last week I talked about a situation where I was hurt and knew what I needed to do (forgive this person), but instead, I waited it out. Finally, when I did forgive this person...

I love card games. I love games in general. Any of my friends will tell you how quickly I am to pull Dutch Blitz out when we’re together. I was the Game Master for two years at Marymount Christian Fellowship. That is how I love to bring a group of people together; and beat them all. Didn’t expect that, did you? Yes, I love...

I go to a dinner party group, which is basically like a church small group. We meet up every Wednesday for a potluck dinner. Eventually, after dinner, we talk about the sermon from Sunday or sometimes talk about topics that can be controversial in the Christian faith like dating, sexuality, and so on. It’s probably one of m...

After multiple weeks of stress and being as I call “In Transition” (psst there's a blog post you can read about that), I finally feel like I am starting to have more time for myself and with friends. This week I had multiple friends either send me a text or tell me in person not only how much I meant to them, but they told...

Last year was a difficult time for my family. I lost multiple family members, one of them being my Aunt Kay. Last Summer we decided to go to one of her favorite mini-vacation spots,  Southern Cross Horse Ranch, an oasis in the Georgia woods. People come from all over to ride horses on this gorgeous property that has a cozy...
