I’ll miss you, Mrs. Harvilchuck

It’s rare that we know when our last moment with someone will be before they pass away. On Christmas Eve I learned that my all-time favorite teacher Lucia Harvilchuck was at a local Hospice. I knew I had to see her while in town, because of her effect on me in addition to countless others. […]

If I Could Give You One Feeling

If I could give you one feeling right now, it would be peace – the peace of knowing you are stronger than you believe. Whether it’s dating, your job or simply life, the confidence and courage to be vulnerable and rise to the occasion are within you. You’ll miss him. You’ll dread work. You’ll feel […]

Letter to a Future Love

You may not be able to see this in me, but I’m actually really scared. I’m scared of getting hurt, of doing the wrong thing that causes us to end and of not being loved for being myself. I dream of the possibilities of each day, and you are a part of that. I understand […]

U-Turn

This week I turned down the opportunity to intern remotely with a start-up after initially accepting. The opportunity seemed exciting. It’d be fresh, a chance to expand my skills and challenge myself by working across multiple time zones. But I turned it down.

All About the Possibilities

2012 is coming to a close and New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching! I plan on spending NYE with some of the best friends I could ask for, but I also can’t help wonder about the dating I’ve experienced this fall. As I looked on Facebook and Instagram this Christmas and saw the gifts (expensive […]
