Proud: a long but necessary reflection.

I’m very particular with the documented meaning of words and I have high expectations of myself to describe things- mostly feelings and beliefs accurately. I have a very controlling relationship with identity so it only makes sense that I would feel this way about the meaning of words and how people use them. Proud is... Continue Reading →

Identity Epiphany

I have been trying to define myself all my life. There is one way that I want people to see me and it includes multiple facets, yet I fail at this all the time when leaving behind what I feel is my definition. For example, I came across the “List your Favorite Bands” page in... Continue Reading →

What not to expect.

What’s in a word?

What's in a word? From my perspective, a lot. I hear a lot of various exclamations throughout the day, face to face, on social media, and throughout my life.
