Confident Vulnerability

Sometimes the doubt and sentiment for the past floods in, and I immediately think about what my morning or work day or weekend would be like if I were back in Tallahassee and not a new city. The nostalgia and desire for what is comfortable overcomes me. Then I stop in the middle of this […]

Tears Start Streaming

I remember my mom dropping me off at college, eager to grasp on to any extra minute with me before this truly new chapter of my life enclosed me. Here on the last school night of my college career tears don’t fall but do come forward. Memories have been ascertained, and I’m stronger for the […]

It’s easy to immediately feel lost and small, especially when a drive through Michigan Avenue will remind you of all the things you can’t afford. I wonder how did some […]
