The World’s Idea of Perfect

Trying to keep up with the world’s idea of perfect can get so tiring. You know exactly what I mean: trying to keep up a certain image by saying the right things and doing the right things at the right time, having that killer wardrobe, the best looking significant other, the perfectly filtered Instagram picture,…

Where are you God?

I wrote this piece of writing about one week ago on a notepad, on a whim. I didn’t know if I was actually going to publish it on here or not, but as this piece of writing sat in my ‘drafts’ section, I came to the conclusion that it deserves to be out there because…

Courtship 101

This post series on courtship has been a long time coming. Over a year ago, I tried to start writing down my thoughts on courtship, and I failed. I never got around to actually writing the post. I was surprised considering how passionate I am about the topic, but God’s timing is God’s timing. I…

Part 2: I Will Not Quit!

Within 48 hours of me writing how “I quit” justifying reasons not to pursue the only career field I can see myself in, I started questioning my academic ability. The past week has been emotionally, physically, and academically draining for me. After having a particularly frustrating night in chem lab tuesday, I started thinking that I wasn’t…

New Design! (FINALLY)

Just a quick little update that I redesigned the blog! I really was never happy with the update re-model I originally did on the blog, but I couldn’t really find another option to meet my wants so I settled for the old design. BUT BEHOLD, I have the set-up I’ve been wanting since I began…

I Quit!

Ever since I was 12, I have dreamed of becoming a doctor. No joke. I even have a ceramic surfboard I decorated at one of those ceramic places freshman year of high school that says “Future hardcore surgeon”. Though I no longer want to be in surgery exactly, you get the idea… I’ve been interested…

Rough Start to 2016

There, I said. I had a TERRIBLE start to 2016. And by terrible I mean I was so scared and not feeling well AT ALL, I thought I was going to have to go to the emergency room. By scared, I mean tears were flowing freely until I felt better because I had no idea what on…

Favorite quotes 2015

I scrummaged through all of the little notebooks I keep, which happen to be where I write down all of the favorite things that I read/hear from  a book, movie, homily, online article, fashion guru, Instagram, Pinterest, etc… Anyway, I compiled some of the ones I found scattered throughout my notebooks here in a blog…

Old Journal Entry

I found an old journal entry of mine. It’s quite short and simple. Enjoy! 🙂 “June 19th 2015, St.Michaels Abbey Wisdom 2:23-24 says: “For God formed us to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made us. But by the envy of the devil, death entered the world, and they who are allied…

Dear Future Daughter

The following is an excerpt of a letter I found in my room that I wrote to my future daughter(God willing/if he is to bless me with a daughter someday) some time ago. I thought I would share some of the things I pray she knows one day 🙂 Dear Future Daughter, …As I am…

The Undervalued Quality in Men ( part 1) : Feeling Safe

I’ve been thinking how I wanted to write this post since mid July, and for a couple of weeks it basically stood at a stand still. No new ideas, no new possibilities, nothing. I was having a very bad case of writers block, and it sucked. I originally got the idea for this post while…

Object of Love

I feel like I always have under-estimated the power of treating others with LOVE. I mean, love is a word we throw around all the time… “I love tacos.. I love chocolate… I love where I live… I love my dog… I love [insert friend or persons name here]”. and obviously we ‘mean’ each of…
