#BLM

I moved home for the summer. I’m in Asheville. Home is supposed to be safe space, full of love and warmth.  Last week, the Asheville police department destroyed a medic station in downtown during a protest. Masks and medical supplies were burned. Water bottles punctured. EMTs, doctors, and nurses pushed aside, some even to the … Continue reading #BLM

What’s In My Bag – Quarantine Edition

The longer quarantine has gone on, the more I find myself turning to Youtube for distraction. Under normal circumstances, whenever I'm stressed, I find myself watching British Vogue's In the Bag.

Mom, Are We There Yet?

Finals are finished - I'm officially a 2L! … Continue reading COVID-19 Update

Music to Check Out During Quarantine

Remember back when I did weekly playlists? It's been a while. Frankly, I stopped doing playlist posts because I felt that I had nothing to add to the conversation. My taste in music is pretty main stream, and I'm not the person to look to when trying to find new artists. Here's my list of … Continue reading Music to Check Out During Quarantine

On Helping Others

I read an article from CNN on a Californian veterinarian who treats the pets of the homeless for free. I sent the article to my dad because we'd been talking about unconditional love on the drive home from dinner the other day, when we saw a homeless man and a dog crossing the street. The … Continue reading On Helping Others
