I returned to the United States on the first day of July, but I feel like I left behind my entire life in Greece. It is a strange feeling, and after almost a week of being back, the strangeness continues to linger. Honestly, this is a very hard post to write – every time I […]Read more "Back, but Not Home"
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"
I know, I know, it has been a while since my last post, but I think it is safe to say that I am officially running on Greek Time here, and that will not be changing anytime soon. Today was the day I was scheduled to return home (in a few hours in fact), but […]Read more "More Cats, More Time – Molyvos, Lesbos, Greece"
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"

‘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"
Over the last few days my phone has been relentlessly giving me Flood and Winter Storms advisories for the county I live in, but I never expected to wake up to a world of white this morning. About five this morning my grandpa, like a little kid on Christmas morning, excitedly came up the stairs […]Read more "Snow Day"
Sometimes life is all about the little things. This year has been an emotional rollercoaster, and the one way I am able to keep myself grounded is to take pleasure in the little things. About a week ago, a good friend of mine from high school and I got together for the first time in […]Read more "The Little Things"
Ok, it had been a while since I have posted an update on my 2015 Reading Challenge progress, but in my defense I just started my last term of Grad school (only 45 days to go)! But I managed to read about three book in the mean time 🙂 New to the List: Someone by […]Read more "2015 Reading Challenge: Update"
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, black and white photography is without a doubt my favorite kind of photography. There is just a timelessness about the style and, for me, it always evokes emotion and thought. As I prepare for another trip to Haiti this December, I have been wanting to […]Read more "Experimenting with Black and White"
