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"
On a much-needed day off last week, I set off with three companions on another island road trip. Once again I feel the need to mention that if you are going on holiday this year, Lesbos is the place to go. It has a beauty like no other place in the world! On this particular […]Read more "Island Road Trip, Part II – Lesbos, Greece"
Hey all! Well the countdown is officially underway. In 7 days I will be leaving to begin my journey to Europe and in 10 days I will officially be there! I can’t even begin to express how excited I am. I have wanted to go to Europe for such a long time now; it is […]Read more "The Countdown Begins"
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"
Again, as I was looking back through old posts, I noticed that this post had bad formatting, so I am republishing it with the corrections, I hope you enjoy it: My birthday is always a hard one to plan around. Most of my friends are gone on Christmas Eve to be with their families for […]Read more "Haiti 2014/2015"
So I was going back through old posts and I realized that this one from July 2014 had some issues with the formatting, so I am republishing the post now (and hopefully it looks good now): This last week I was so blessed to be able to cross off another item from my bucket list: […]Read more "An Item off the List: Visit the Children I Sponsor – Luis"
I wanted to reformat this post as I did not like the way I had laid it out before (I am currently reformatting and redoing my entire blog to simplify things and clean it up a little), but I feel it is especially important for this post because this was the country that started it […]Read more "Cambodia, A Love Story"
So the first month of 2016 is already halfway over, how crazy is that! I just wanted to give a brief update on my Bucket List plans for this year. I am in the middle of completing one of my goals, which is to “complete at least 2 photo essays in 2016”. My first essay […]Read more "Bucket List Progress"
‘Tis the Season for New Year’s Resolutions…or in my case improvements upon my never ending bucket list. While I feel I accomplished a lot in 2015 (traveled to Haiti, L.A., and Seattle; met George R. R. Martin; got a little more serious about photography; graduated from grad school), I feel I didn’t really accomplish much […]Read more "‘Tis the Season…and other General Announcements"
It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that I was celebrating the first moments of 2015 surrounded by fellow volunteers and many friendly Haitians in a small club in the mountains of La Vallée. Where did the last fifty-one weeks go? So much has happened in those weeks that seemed to disappear […]Read more "Goodbye 2015"
