Another 52 (Bulletproof) Weeks.

I realize that it’s not quite the end of 2011, but I don’t anticipate a lot of updating in the coming week and a half. So I’ve decided to post my annual recap today, aren’t you lucky? I’ve taken parts of entries I’ve written in every month of this year, and compiled them into a […]

Let’s Occupy some common sense.

To those who ‘Occupy’: You are extremely frustrating. Instead of starting a movement of change, you have become the butt of the joke, the comical punchline in late night television. As a young twenty-something with plenty to say, I have a few words for you. I get it, I truly do. You want equality, you […]

30 Days of Thanks. #11.

I brought Jeremy down to Enumclaw to see Candice and the boys, and he finally understood what I’ve been saying for years: those boys are amazing. It was so nice to walk into that house and […]

30 Days of Thanks. #7.

I devour books. Like, nearly swallow them whole because they taste so good and I can never get enough, devour. It’s true, I have always been this way, and it’s gotten to the point where reading is sometimes a bummer because I know it’s going to end a lot quicker than I want. I have […]
