It's interesting to think about how when I was younger, all I ever did was wish that I was eighteen. I lived for the day I'd be an official "adult." At thirteen, it felt like a lifetime of years away, but now, at the age of eighteen, it felt like a second. Days would sometimes feel … Continue reading Thoughts on Dealing with Stress
I wouldn't say I've been through anything much in comparison to other people with more severe sob stories to tell. If you've read my previous posts, you know I haven't been in a house fire or had a parent die or something like that. I haven't had severe burns or a terminal illness or been … Continue reading Not Afraid to Love Others
It's now November 2nd. The death of spooky season has arrived, and I'm already seeing Christmas ads on YouTube TV and Pinterest. As someone anticipating the arrival of December, this is profoundly exciting for me. Not only to see my best friend again, but I just love Christmas in general.

To the few people who perhaps actually look forward to my few and far between blog posts.

Especially if you're a mom, or live with lots of people, or work in a very populous environment. You probably crave alone time … Continue reading Isolation
I'm only seventeen years old, and I feel already that I've seen my fair share of heartache. Enough to sometimes make me weary of the years ahead.
