Emotional level: 5 Mental level: 5 TODAY I LEARNED: You’re more sensitive to smells when you’re hungry.   I don’t think a blog post can sum up just how much has happened in the past few weeks. There is truly so much. Luckily, I came to a very real and true conclusion through all of…

Signs From The Universe

Emotional level: 7 Mental level: 7 TODAY I LEARNED: “Do geese see god?” <<< that can be read forwards and backwards.   I’ve been thinking a lot about my characters from my book. Story book characters live their lives so much different from ours. Every time you read a book about a far away place…

Emotional level: 8 Mental level: 8 TODAY I LEARNED: 350 slices of pizza are sold every second in America.   I’m ecstatic today, but I don’t want to say why.

I know, the title of this blog post looks dark and gloomy, but don't worry. Not everything is as it seems. It's important to remember that suicide has been deemed something we shouldn't talk about by our society standards. That's not okay. I don't like it at all.

It's hard to talk to someone you just can't get along with. Much less when your job or situation requires it. It can be daunting to consistently keep up a smiling face when all you want to do is punch them straight through the wall. I've had my fair share of people who I simply…
