A Change in Plans—Becoming a Freelance Writer

This has been an insane autumn for me. There's been a lot of growth and...some decline in the last few months, I'm not going to lie. It's hard growing up and I'm by no means in the full-on "adulting" phase yet. To prove it, every once in a while I give myself a "high-five" and... Continue Reading →


Distance Makes the Heart Grow What?

Happy Labor Day! It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Well, in mine...maybe not yours. Anyway, I hope it's a beautiful day for you and that you are taking some time for yourself. This weekend, family came to visit and it was great. It also surprisingly taught me some lessons. Lately, an issue I've come... Continue Reading →

Staying True to Your Path

Hello, blogosphere! I've been told starting a blog post with a greeting like, "hello" is not professional; but since I've taken a break from this blog over the summer and I've missed it so much, I can't help using a greeting.

But it's true. This week is my final... Continue Reading →

I had a great time capturing this event while watching the qualifiers, alumni races, and the official race with my friends. I was truly... Continue Reading →

Growing Zen

When I was younger, the best part of summer was being outside in the fresh air. As I've grown older and acquired more responsibility, I've begun to equate summer with time off and time off with getting as much rest as possible. And rest, to me, was sleeping and watching television, because I didn't have... Continue Reading →

The Zone

Upon reflection of my time playing volleyball in high school, I realize there are two ways by which I remember the experience. One side was excitement, fun, camaraderie, and other pleasant things. The other side was exhaustion, frustration, and anxiety. In a game, my mindset was either completely controlled by my focus on the game,... Continue Reading →
