God Bless You All (Day 3)


Religion in India is a way of life, and the people here practice it with an intensity I've never experienced before in America. 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 →

Brownie


My grandmother turned 93 years old on Friday. 93 years old. Can you imagine? The wonderful and terrible things she's seen... She was born in 1920 in Delaware. Her mother died giving birth to her, and she was raised by her aunt and uncle (who she thought were her real parents until apparently she overheard... Continue Reading →

We’re All Dying


I have found the depths of the library. It's kinda dark over here, I can't lie. But it's the only way to escape my aftermath-of-atomic-bomb disaster of a dorm room and get some studying done. Not that I've gotten any done yet...Oops. Sorry, college, WordPress calls. It is that infamous week of the dead that... Continue Reading →

Write.


I haven't written in so long...I'm sorry! ...No, that's not an apology to you, it's one to myself. How dare I let myself stop writing after I got a tattoo that says "write." How. Dare. I. You heard right, kids! Caps got tatted... The inside of my left wrist now says "write" in typewriter font.... Continue Reading →

Weird Day, Gimme a McFlurry.


Today, I was a bit of a grumpy camper, so I decided to get a McFlurry. Because really, when you're sad, what cheers you up more than a questionably-dairy "ice cream" treat injected with death and Reese's chunks? Nothing, that is the answer. So I left my house, drove to the closest McDonald's (which is... Continue Reading →

The Ride


Tonight, I discovered that nothing beats a bike ride. As many of you know, I love love love road biking. But lately, I haven't really been riding. Like, at all. And there are lots of reasons for that. Okay, mainly just one. I just finished my freshman year of college. I started out at my dream school,... Continue Reading →

Is There Some Kind of Lesson Here?


College is not what I expected. At all. That's probably my fault, honestly. I had these dreams about going away to college and truly realizing who I am and what I'm meant to be, and I've thought about going here, to this specific place, since I was 12. So I guess it's all the fault... Continue Reading →

Someone Like You


To begin this story, and help illustrate the weird ramblings my mind takes, I should let you know that I've been listening to Adele's "21" nonstop for the past week. I finally bought the whole thing (I'd gotten a couple songs from it but finally caved because it's AWESOME). So I sing in the shower (a... Continue Reading →
