Webs


Three spiders have made their homes outside my apartment windows. Sometimes, I watch them spin their webs in the dark, orange streetlights barely illuminating the fibers. Usually they're sheltered from the rainy Oregon weather but every so often, when it rains sideways, huge holes appear in the meticulously symmetrical designs. I'm always so amazed at the...

Beauty School (Dropout)


I should not be awake. I also shouldn't be sick and full of snot and coughing like a choking dog, but such is life.  I started cosmetology school yesterday. Surprise! I didn't tell y'all...possibly because I haven't posted in like 4 months because I'm a failure working gal and got busy getting my life in order. ... Continue Reading →

We went to a Catholic cathedral today and I was almost in tears because everyone there was so focused on their devotion. It was a truly beautiful thing to see. The churches... Continue Reading →

First Impressions

I sent my family an email and figured instead of writing a new post, I'd just post parts of it here (lightly edited for clarification purposes) because I'm exhausted and it's only 8 pm. The sun sets here around 6:30, so...it's hard to stay... Continue Reading →

It's been two years, either today or yesterday, since life meant very little to me. Two years since I broke and my mother had to take a plane at 6 a.m. to be with me, to keep me safe and protected. Two years since I started rebuilding. I never expected any of that to happen,... Continue Reading →

The Sound of the Universe, Permanently ॐ


Om. Spoken as three syllables. Symbolizing the beginning, duration, and dissolution of the universe. Representing Brama, Vishnu, and Shiva. The vibration of the universe. The most beautiful sound and feeling in existence, all-encompassing and absolute. I've never felt more from one symbol in my life, but as I became familiar with the om symbol, I...
