IDK

I don’t know. I don’t know anything. I sit here at 22 years old and it feels like I don’t know anything – how life works, how we grow old, how we grow up. How this home that I’m sitting in is the one I was raised in at 5 years old. How the house […]

How to Become Rich, Beautiful, & Successful

Eat too many cookies? Still don’t have a million dollars? Feel like your drowning in blubber? Want to become healthier? The trick is to make a plan! Every 3 months, evaluate how far you’ve come (it’s probably not far at all, maybe even a little regression took place) and then make a BRAND NEW game […]

People Are Different

Know something funny? People are different. Even though we’re all the same in so many ways, and share a million threads of similarity, we are all different. Not different to the extent that our differences are worth fighting, shunning, or judging over. Just to the extent that I’m sometimes surprised. I think, to some subconscious […]

I think I’m a bit confused. As to… How this all works. As to how we are supposed to continually shape ourselves into the forms that fit through the rings, mazes, and courses that we are expected to navigate through each and every stage of life. I’m a bit confused as to how we were shoveled […]

Perfect Timing

When the note from your predecessor at work keeps you going… Overwhelming is an understatement for what it’s been like in between school, personal projects, enjoying this last year at the university, planning for the future, and working for our university’s Health & Wellness department. In short, our staff has been drowning in the demands […]

Morning

You know when you wake up with a smile? You grab something for breakfast, then sit down, and just feel… Alright. You put on some music, and sit there. You might not be moving, but you are totally, utterly animated. Your thoughts, your views, your position on life is alive, running, flying. Capable of anything. […]

The Funny Thing About Memory

I sat in lecture today for three hours, learning about memory and the functions that drive our nostalgia. I began to think of all of the memories I have stored in my brain, and all of the memories I almost forgot about. Memories from my childhood, memories from my awkward teenager years, memories in general. Such […]
