I have a confession to make: sometimes I miss writing essays. I miss reading a book with a question in my mind, I miss outlining and finding the perfect quotes, and I miss sitting down to construct a well-written argument. I get that this makes me a super-nerd, but it’s my blog, and in this … Continue reading
We have all sorts of identifiers in our lives, things we know for sure. I am a woman, I am a wife, I am a coffee drinker. We do this to categorize ourselves, to find common ground with the people around us. What I’m curious about is, at what point can you give yourself a … Continue reading

I know that 29 … Continue reading
Hey Guys! If you’re missing me today, check out my post at: Crazy Town I’m pretty proud of it!
