I honestly do not like describing myself because I feel like I should be represented upon my actions. But I can say that I just enjoy every aspect about life, from family to friends to the falling leaves off a tree. Life in general is just wondrous and mysterious, beautiful and spectacular. So much to learn, so many obstacles I have yet to face. From heartache and fear, to growing and building. From the joy of laughing to the darkness pain in sorrow. I only have ONE life. ONE mind, ONE body, ONE heart, and ONE soul that intricately flow perfectly together roaming this earth. And I don't want to miss any millisecond of it.

  • I usually do not give my opinion on controversial topics but after looking into the recent popularity of the Kony movement I’ve decided to speak. For those of you who have yet to heard about the KONY 2012 campaign, it is essentially a movement to raise money and gain support for the capture of Joseph Kony. (Video link provided below)  Kony has committed many atrocities to the people Uganda including: rape, murder, and the conversion of children into ruthless soldiers. The topic has become rather heated online, and there have been outcries for justice. However, before I continue to offer my support I decided to take a step back and evaluate the credibility of the organization behind the campaign: Invisible Children. When I had originally […]

  • Okay, so I too know what it is like to juggle school work and other issues. It isn’t easy! So what do you do? STOP! And take a breather. You might say to yourself, “but I can’t, I just have too much to do!” Well, I want to tell you, YES YOU CAN! First off, everyone knows that stress is not good for your health. Just keep that in mind that you have one life so take it easy. Sometimes, we need to enjoy ourselves and just relax. Breathe. It would be much more efficient to take it slow and do things right the first time, rather than rushing through having to do it all over again. Second, practice good time management. Believe me, I […]
