As everyone knows, a helicopter went down on Sunday and the world has lost a basketball legend, his very talented daughter, and seven other lives. I feel for all of their families. Of course, in this tragedy, many people bring up the rape allegations and case against Kobe and downplay his death. And then there’s obviously the people who try to tell others who their heroes should and shouldn’t be. It’s sad some people aren’t open-minded and compassionate enough to understand why so many fans are hurting right now. Well, me being me and seeing the bigger picture, I’m obviously about to tell a story that has nothing to do with Kobe. Because his death is much deeper than that.

Crossroads at 32.
Writing this specific post has been quite the journey for me. I’ve worked on this draft everyday for the past six days, struggling to find the right words for what I wanted to say about this book that I had finished reading the day that I started writing this draft. This post has gone through multiple drastic changes, and my thoughtsRead More »
Here we are. We made it to another year and a new decade. If the last few weeks of 2019 and the first few days of 2020 say anything about how my year and decade are going to go, it’s hard for me not to be excited about life and all its possibilities. As many people already know, I’m taking a break Read More »
It’s been quite a bit since I last wrote anything. And that bit has been quite the roller coaster. Lots of ups and downs. Mostly downs, but the kinds of situations and emotions that ultimately continue to remind me how lucky I am and how I need to make self-care a bigger priority in my life.
In this post, I was pretty stoked Read More »
So I’ve been in San Diego for a little over a week now, helping out at the other shop. This trip happened with less than a week notice. I’m supposed to be flying home on Sunday. That’s almost a two week long Read More »
Struggling is part of the game.
It’s funny how quickly life can go from awesome to let-me-off-this-ride. I’m definitely at a low point right now. Lowest I’ve been in months, honestly. But it’s life and Read More »
Just in case I forget where I am…
Got a new tattoo yesterday from my awesome Australian friend, Ali, who lived here a few years back is in town for a visit. She does stick and poke tattoos. The timing of her visit couldn’t have been any better for what I wanted and received. It obviously ties back in to Read More »
32. (Birthdays are dumb)
In my last post that I did yesterday, I talked about how I had multiple stupid drafts that I needed to go through and reorganize, finish, and whatever. I mentioned how I would hit my birthday post draft and get it up soon. Turns out I’m just going to delete that. I ended up doing something today that I haven’t done in too long; Read More »
Music Monday: Ready?
It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Life has been hectic the past bit, not in a bad way. Definitely have multiple blog post drafts from times when I wanted to write but couldn’t arrange my thoughts or Read More »
Music Monday: Scared to be happy.
The past few days have been trying, to say the least. I’m not going to get into any details, but I had a situation where I felt like I needed to, I guess, stand up for myself. And I did this is an extremely vulnerable way. Like, my emotions could’ve toned it down a tad. Long story short, Read More »
