Wherever You Go, You Take Yourself With You

I’ve been listening to Neil Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book” on audiobook recently and came across this quote: “It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.”... Continue Reading →

In The Blood

Have you ever looked at your blood under a microscope? What do you imagine you’d find there? All your little red blood cells whizzing around like an episode of “The Magic School Bus?” While it wasn’t quite a Ms. Frizzle-worthy magical experience, I do feel like I learned quite a lot from seeing the life-giving...

The “Should” List

It’s a simple conversation. They’re offering advice. “Oh, have you thought about taking a self-defense class?” “Are you streaming on Twitch?” “Have you found a doctor/church/gym/“insert a seemingly helpful suggestion here” yet?” And I always have the same answer: “I should do that.” Seems innocuous enough, right?

I tried to capture some... Continue Reading →

Adulting Ahead

If you haven’t already seen the slightly sleepy and delirious vlog I made with Alanna at William & Mary’s Homecoming discussing the peaks and valleys of post-college life, I highly recommend you do that now! Otherwise, I’m going to dive right into a few more thoughts on “Adulting” because even though I was SO TIRED... Continue Reading →

A Concert for Charlottesville

Two weeks ago, my friend Katherine called me on a lazy Sunday afternoon and asked what I would be doing the following Sunday. For once, I actually didn’t have much planned that weekend so I told her I was totally free, and she subsequently invited me to A Concert for Charlottesville hosted by The Dave... Continue Reading →

Immune Disorders and Why I Can’t Seem to Take a Sick Day

Let me tell you a little bit about immune disorders. If you didn’t know…they suck. (But I imagine you could guess that.) It’s really easy (and almost mandatory these days) to suffer silently from them. Because you’re suffering silently. It’s difficult to justify taking a “sick day.” My body is pretty much always in this... Continue Reading →
