Don’t Let a Little Awkward Get You Down

I am an introvert through and through. I don’t like big crowds, but I also don’t like small groups of people I barely know. I have a limited comfort zone when it comes to social situations. I love spending time with people I’m close to or have been around a lot, but I also need... Continue Reading →


Why me?

I was born into a Christian family. Southern Baptists who thrive on community and Jesus. Every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening, I willingly went to class to learn about the Bible. I trembled with Jonah, ached for Daniel, and cried alongside Mary. I never once questioned whether God was real. I just knew. But at... Continue Reading →

Digitally Perfect

I have a constant inner struggle. To take advantage of the internet or to not take advantage of the internet. On one hand, the internet and social media are wonderful. Any information I could possibly want is right in my pocket and I can keep up with my cousins' kids as they grow up just... Continue Reading →

Marathon Dater

I've been conflicted about talking about my love life on the internet, but I also have made a pact with myself to be vulnerable and frank. So let me tell you a little story...

I was captivated by the beautiful, historic campus from the first moment of my tour. On top of the incredible architecture of the school buildings and the city as a whole, it’s...

Monday is my 22nd birthday. Woo. Birthdays aren’t like what they are when you’re a little kid. No big themed parties (my unicorn-themed party was bomb), no stacks of presents, and no cakes decorated with your name (typically). I’ve traded my party hats and candles for a nine-hour work day and a simple dinner this... Continue Reading →


You don’t have a say in what I want to be called. You don’t have a say in the fact that I use words like “disabled” and “handicapped.” You do not get to tell me if I am being politically correct or not when I talk about disability. You don’t have a say because I’ve... Continue Reading →

Not Just A Fashion Statement

“Why do you always wear dresses?” I get that question all the time. It comes off as accusatory and a bit hostile at times. Sometimes it comes along with “Why do you always have to look so cute?” in a fake disgusted tone. Well first, let me apologize by offending you with my $10 dress... Continue Reading →
