Light Your Soul on Fire

Passion is energy. It is when you put more focus into something than what is actually required. We have our ups and downs, We have paced and had this "just get through the day" attitude. That sense of emotion is draining, as if there aren't enough hours in the day to help you get all … Continue reading Light Your Soul on Fire


Taking a Moment

It's always important to stop and do what you truly love every once in a while. In my case, it is writing. My body woke me up at 6 a.m. on a Sunday. I continued to lay there, trying to shut my eyes to get more sleep on my day off. It's almost as if … Continue reading Taking a Moment

1. Coffee

I ran across this just a moment ago as I was unwinding after a long work day and scrolling through Pinterest on my phone. Friends is playing in the background, coffee is in my hand, and my dog is curled up beside me. I instantly wanted to do it. I wrote for the first time last … Continue reading 1. Coffee

As we all know how the college life works, one might have moved … Continue reading Determining Your Direction

Sometimes, I Get the Urge to Write

Sometimes, I get the urge to write. I get the urge to declutter my racing mind and put it all into words. I get the urge to ramble onto a blank slate in hope that it will clear my mind even a slight bit. I get the urge to go on about something that I … Continue reading Sometimes, I Get the Urge to Write

Woah, Life. Woah.

Where do I even begin? I can't possibly start off with how my day has been going. Or how my week has been going. Or how my month or semester is going, because well . . . I haven't written in five months. Five. Where do I even begin?   These are the thoughts that just … Continue reading Woah, Life. Woah.

First Week of School

A week of professional development has come and gone, just as the first week of school has done. I've said it before and I will say it a million times again -- it's crazy how fast the time goes by. Professional Development was neat. I got to have the firsthand experience of the impact in … Continue reading First Week of School
