~2013~ A Year in Review

What did 2013 look like to me? Chaos. If I had a bird’s eye view, I am sure it was hilarious watching me scurry about dealing with change in every facet of my life.

The Wallflower

He was walking straight towards me. I averted my eyes, thinking that may deter him. Then, I see the toes of his shoes inches from mine. My heart is pounding.

Another Restless Night

What to do when your mind won’t shut up? Let it out. What do you do when you think you have found the very thing you think you have been looking for potentially your entire life but it is miles away, like 2,497 miles away? As I said, you just think this is it, you … Continue reading
