On Love

My boyfriend lives two hours away from me. While I’m fortunate that this is all the distance that’s separating us, I still miss seeing him in person. I miss him even more now that the Corona virus is keeping us safely indoors. Thankfully, I had the chance to see him over Valentine’s Day, where weContinue reading “On Love”

On Editing a Book

Hello, dear reader! For those of you who don’t know, I finished writing a sci-fi book. I finally figured out the title, which I’ll keep a secret until I’m ready to publish it. I’m enjoying typing out what I’ve written, and have found that my chapters are much longer than I remember. (No wonder IContinue reading “On Editing a Book”

Afghan Blanket Update!

Writing Thank You’s in the Digital Age

Hello, dear reader! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I love this time of year, not only because of my Christian faith, but because of the time I spend with my family.

On Listening to Schumann

I discovered this German composer through A Little Life, and have recently been listening to his piano pieces. Listening to Schumann, I recognize how freaking hard his compositions are, but also how rewarding they sound: I think if you can play a piece by Schumann, I think you can play pretty much anything.

Happiness

My life is changing. I have more energy, energy to stay awake during the day. I wake up now and don’t feel groggy when I head downstairs to eat breakfast. I tend to go to bed earlier than I used to, but this is because I’m taking less naps in the afternoon. I’m reading andContinue reading “Happiness”

On Writing

I’ve loved writing ever since I could form letters. Ever since I knew how to formulate stories through play. As a child, I loved telling stories with my Beanies, Crazy Bones in the sandbox, and German animals. (I’ve played with so many toys; these are the top three.)
