A Glimpse Into the Past

While I feel that my case of senioritis kicked in during my sophomore year of high school, I’m still struggling to wrap my head around the fact that I am almost done with a 13 year chapter of my life. When my dad was cleaning out the garage, he came across a bunch of old…

Figuring Out Things

Two weeks ago, I started my senior year of high school. Since then, a lot has been going on (being my only excuse for not posting). As this chapter of life closes, I’m stuck to really consider the question: What am I doing? While it may be a broad question to pose, it needs to…

Memories

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I agree. Pictures are some of my favorite things. So many memories and thoughts brought about by an image. My room is covered in photos of everything from childhood pets to holidays celebrated with my favorite people. Instead of having things to bring memories, pictures…

Through the Camera Lense

With the fast pace of this time, it is a very rare occurrence that we choose to stop what we are doing to look at the world around us. With all of the horrible things that go on, there is always beauty nearby. Some of us have come to look at the world with disgust….

Quiet Days

Growing up I’ve never really liked the snow because it’s cold and wet. Now I’ve seen it as something completely different. In a sense, snow stops time.

Going Against the World

Being a minimalist might seem trendy, but it still goes against what most of the world considers life. Consumerism controls our world. Things are what fills the “empty spaces” in our lives. Things become so important that during the holidays people go into debt. The United States has over $20 trillion dollars in debt. It…

The Perfect Present: Presence

With the holidays behind us, we now are going back to our normal lives of work, school, and life. We’re now back to looking through our social medias for hours on end and sitting in front of a computer doing work. The short amount of time we have of spending time with family and friends…

A Simpler Holiday

The holiday season is finally upon us! As we begin our celebrations, we should really take a step back and look at the why. Why are we celebrating? Why are the holidays so important? The holiday season has become so focused on consumerism. With the craze that is Black Friday, we’ve become focused more on…

My Schedule

I am the type of person that is always super busy and on the go. Currently, my schedule is completely booked until the first of January. My Lilly Pulitzer agenda goes with me basically everywhere and sometimes I don’t understand how I can be so busy. I’ve noticed that I can handle a lot more…
