Finding Myself in the Storm

“What’s your name again?” Have you ever met someone for the fourth or fifth time, and you just cannot seem to remember their name? The first few times it was okay to ask them to remind you, but then… You just stopped asking, because it’s embarrassing to admit you don’t remember.

Dating Standards & How They Change

  “Your rules are ridiculous!” It was my second date with the charming personality, but something in his tone didn’t sound very charming. “Excuse me? You said you were good with my rules…?” Our first date had been lovely. I hadn’t been in the beautiful city of D.C.  for very long and I was feeling […]

When Your Best isn’t the Best

How to do your best

Have you ever been in a competition and got a place, or a grade in school that was less than what you had hoped for, and then someone tried to comfort you by saying “There, there, you did your best, and that’s what counts.” I know I have, and it’s a really common thing to say […]

This Artist's Life | Why Church Going isn't all that

  Just because someone goes to church doesn’t mean they’re a Christian. No, duh.

Success: Measured By a Day

This post was supposed to be about success, but getting into it I realized how abstract the word success is. It means different things to different people. To me, success means you stopped wishing, and started being proactive about making your dreams a reality. It means you wanted to do something so you did.  Simply […]
