Discomfort

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about the past. Different choices I’ve made or didn’t make. I think it’s just something about the year coming to a close that provokes reflection on the past. A concept that I’ve heard a million times really sunk in whilst reflecting on the year: lean into discomfort rather than […]

Winging it

As Christmas is only a couple weeks away and the end of the semester is days away, I can’t help but dream of my next escape. And by escape I mean adventure, of course. Whether my dreaming is actually going to see itself into reality and happen or not is another matter.  Since I’m in […]

You’re not an island

One warm summer night I had just grabbed dinner with a friend and as I was driving home I had the brilliant idea that I would watch the sunset. It was nearly 8pm and I could already tell it was going to be a totally photographic one. Not that I’m a photographer, I’d rather just […]

The comparison game

About a month ago, I went to get a haircut. I actually went for just a trim, like literally an inch. I even showed the lady a picture and everything. Next thing I know, she takes a chunk of my hair and wacks off a piece closer to about 5 inches. I just sat their […]

Rides to Realizations

I have a two-step process to get to my classes. First I drive to a Kroger north of campus, then I pull my bike out of the back of my car and bike the rest of the way, either on the trail or the main street. It’s rough at 7am in winter. One wintery day I […]

Interrditions

Back in high school and the start of college, I was really into trains. I thought it was so awesome to hang out by the train tracks, watch the trains go racing by, maybe even smash a few pennies or climb to the top of the signal towers and feel the trains vibrating the metal […]

Taking Risks

The university that I attend is awesome enough to offer a skydiving class. As soon as I found out about this, I knew I had to take it the class.  I scheduled it for the next semester and waited patiently for the day to arrive. You had to schedule your jump date separately and so […]

Let the Adventure Begin!

Thanks for joining me! I’m so excited to start this blog and share my stories with you.  This is a picture from when my sister, a friend, and I took a day trip down to Red River Gorge in KY. It was super hot in the middle of July but we had the brilliant idea of […]
