Hi! Thank you for being here. I write about my feelings, mostly. I also write about experiences I’ve had & lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Teachers Save the World.
We moved around a lot growing up. We weren't a military family or anything like that, but we were a family of thirteen (that, down the timeline, became a family of 16) so we outgrew houses quickly. I hated it. I hated making friends just to leave them behind and I hated always being the new kid in school, but I knew my parents were doing the best that they could do.
We grow older and parts of us begin to fade away more and more as we create new versions of ourselves... but what happens to the old us? What happens to the games we used to love to play growing up? What happens to the drawings we drew and proudly gave to our parents every day after school? What happens to the broken hearts we felt when our heart was crushed for the first time? What happens to all of the passions we once had, that we lost when we grew up and were thrown into the real world? What happens to us as we shed our old selves and create new ones that better fit who we are in that moment? When we become parents? When we become spouses? What happens to the old us when our parents pass away? What happens to us when we gain responsibilities and depend on ourselves in order to survive our everyday lives?
Rescuing You, Rescued Me
The day I met Kelso was one of the best days I can remember in my life. I woke up that boiling, summer morning, 20 years old, and aching for something to help me work through my anxiety. And since we always had one dog, and one cat growing up it just made sense for me to go to a shelter and adopt a dog. So I pulled myself out of bed and texted my friend. I convinced her to come with me, & two hours later we were walking into this tucked away animal shelter not sure what to expect. But when we walked inside the environment was clean, for what it was, and all you could hear were loud barks, anxious meows, and the pitter patter of smaller animals al throughout the building.
