  • Rules for a Joyful Life (pt. 1)

    I don’t have a part two planned, but I figure everything in this world is a work-in-progress, so I can only imagine my definition of joy will be, too. I am not rich, famous, or an instagram model. I am, though, the happiest I have ever been, and have been hit with a couple “I […]

  • Energy

    So let’s talk about high-energy versus low energy people. Whether this is a real concept or not, I have no idea, but it seems to be a reoccurring theme in my life so I thought I’d tap on it for a moment. Now, “energy” here I believe doesn’t refer to actual energy levels, although I […]

  • General Update on Life in OK!

    So the job list is out! Turns out most of the positions are here in Bartlesville (3 Houston, 2 Anchorage), so I’m getting used to the idea that my first position will likely be here. Not complaining as it’s a neat little city with all kinds of activities and non-profits and whatnot. It’s low-key, which […]

  • Ok.

    So day 1 & 2 went swimmingly. I met the couple I’m going to be living with this summer. Not only are they adorable, but their house is as well. My room is a pleasant and calming shade of blue, complete with a full/queen bed adorned with camel, white, and pale blue accents. Camel colored […]

  • Onward, ho!

    “The time has come,” the Walrus said…” …to move to Oklahoma. Last night, I spent my last night “living” at my parents house for the foreseeable future. We loaded up my car, again, and got everything ready for the big trip. I saw Erica, Callie, Sigi, her boyfriend (Daniel), and Chance before I left, kissed […]

  • Miles to Go

    “…I’ve got promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep.” –Robert Frost Well, the truth is that the fast pace of life has hit me all at once. Two weeks ago I was working on finals, then I was packing and cleaning and prepping for graduation/moving most […]

  • Never can say goodbye.

    Well, that’s it. I’ve moved out of my apartment, loaded down my car with anything & everything that would fit, kissed my new fiancĂ© goodbye, and left College Station for good. Talk about closing one chapter & opening another! A week or so ago I was a relatively carefree college student just trying to graduate. […]

  • Graduation!

    Holy cow. I’m a graduate. Again, nothing feels all that different. In fact, it’s been such a busy weekend that I haven’t had a free minute for it to set in. My whole family came down Friday night and crashed at my apartment (thanks to my wonderful roommates letting us use their rooms!) and my […]

  • About Mindset.

    About Mindset.

    I won’t even attempt to apologize for my lack of dedication over the last few days. I spent a wonderful weekend at home with my family and got to take a small, welcome break from technology. That said, I heard my posts might have actually been missed a little bit and I feel the only […]
