I meant to get this out before the end of January, but better late than never. The first month of this New Year seemed to fly by, and pass painfully slowly all at once. The last ten days of January have seemed a little surreal, and it is still hard to believe all that has […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: January"
Yesterday, January 21, 2017, was just the beginning. Protests and demonstrations took place in over six hundred cities around the country but also took place in cities on all seven continents around the world. The Women’s March is being called the biggest demonstration in American history. While I would have loved to have been in Washington […]Read more "Just the Beginning"
Here is another post I felt was in need of reformatting (I am currently re-doing my entire blog as I was not completely satisfied with how it look, but I’m getting there). So if you missed it the first time, here is a little snapshot of my amazing trip to Seattle last April: Today, I […]Read more "Seattle, WA Norwescon – April 2015"
Just a short post: This weekend I got to spend the day out by the river with my grandfather and my mother, and I actually got to snap some pictures of them.

I was able to all my new gear from B&H (which I highly […]Read more "New Year, New Camera"
So this last weekend I traveled south to Los Angeles with my mother for a fun getaway. I had a very packed weekend – there is so much more to do in LA than there is back home – but one of the things I should have thought through more was the timing of the […]Read more "Los Angeles 2015"
Last night I had the honor and privilege to see Laverne Cox, an advocate for the LGBT community, speak at Southern Oregon University. In her lecture, Ain’t I A Woman, Laverne Cox not only spoke about her own struggles about growing up in a society that did not approve of her being a trans-woman, but […]Read more "Ain’t I A Woman"
It has always been my style, when I am going to take big trip, I always take a smaller trip first. Before making my way to Central America, I decided that I would go “camping” with my mom in Washington. I got to stop and see friends and family along the way in Portland, OR […]Read more "A Trip Before the Trip: Camping in Washington"
