#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

Mom, Are We There Yet?

This quarantine feels like a never ending road trip, only we're not going anywhere cool, I've seen the same stretch of highway with the same trees a million times, and we ran out of snacks forever ago. It's got me asking are we there yet?! No. No we are not there yet. While states are … Continue reading Mom, Are We There Yet?

Good lord what do I even call this other than a weird rant

Before turning 21, drinking was this weird thing I considered very grown up, but also youthful. Alcohol was surrounded by a gauze of mysticism. How would it make me feel? Do I want to risk getting into trouble? How much is too much? How does one make a mixed drink? Honestly, before college, I thought … Continue reading Good lord what do I even call this other than a weird rant

Life As A Pioneer (AKA living as a millennial without a microwave)

As my roommates and I all move out to start our new adult lives our stuff has slowly began to disappear from our house. I'm currently sitting in a living room with a tv stand, but no tv, end tables, but no couch, curtain rods, but no curtains...you get the picture. Not throwing shade at … Continue reading Life As A Pioneer (AKA living as a millennial without a microwave)

Happy Memorial Day!

I always think of Memorial Day the official start of summer. The pool opens, temperatures are nice and toasty, and the lightening bugs come out to play. I never really thought about Memorial Day as an actual holiday with actual meaning until this year. Sounds silly, right? But it truly wasn't until my brother joined … Continue reading Happy Memorial Day!

MLK Day

I hope everyone is enjoying this day off of school and (maybe) work. While a lot of people view this as just another day off, I'm grateful for friends and family that encourage me to take the time to educate myself on race, politics, and history. I know this is something I should be doing … Continue reading MLK Day

Sienna

Sienna was absolutely beautiful! I loved going through the government buildings (hello, future law student!) and seeing firsthand how art can be a political influence. The views were absolutely gorgeous!  Reading in the plaza is a nice break from walking around all day! I brought a sarong with me to use as a blanket when … Continue reading Sienna

On My Radar

Hello, Summer! We are so glad you're here! Also, to all the dads out there, happy Father's Day! Higher temps tend to lead to fewer clothes, which can snowball (or sandball?) into a whole host of body confidence issues for both males and females. Check out this podcast by Call Your Girlfriend about exploring body … Continue reading On My Radar
