Summer Heat

Ah 90 degree weather. Welcome. Atlanta has settled into the full heat of summer and, as I have not received this month's electric bill yet, I am blissfully enjoying it by sitting in my air conditioned apartment with cold tea and and some good books. I am currently making my way through The Next American …

100

This is my 100th post. I'm trying to decide how I feel about that. It seems silly and narcissistic to say, "oh, look how far I've come." Of course, that would be true, but who hasn't changed in the last 4(ish) years? We've all come far whether it's documented on a blog or not. But, …

We've settled into a cloudy and breezy May here in Georgia, and I don't hate it. My classes are finished for the spring semester and I have a week and a half until Maymester (woohoo). It's time to focus on grad school apps again. My mind has been blessedly free of them for the last …

Light

This has been a hard week for humans. Sadness is all around, and if you're an avid news watcher, like myself, it can be very easy to feel overwhelmed. But God brings so much peace. I am seeing how much the little things matter, and I'm constantly amazed by the human spirit. Love wins over …

Woah I haven't written since July... Sorry guys (the three of you). I was taking a lot of classes and working a lot and my computer broke and I moved and I'm really good at making up excuses. Also I've recently developed an obsession for Dawson's Creek and therefore writing for fun has become pretty …

Perfect

She walked out of the bathroom feeling empty and thin, the way she liked to feel. Her point shoes clicked on the wood floor as she stepped into the hallway. “God, Adrian, what took you so long?” Emily stood there with her hand on her bony hip, staring at Adrian. “Sorry,” Adrian said. “Come on. …

Happy Things

What? I have a blog? Oh ya... It has been a crazy long time since I have written anything. I wish I could say I've been really busy, but honestly, my family got cable for the first time, so I've pretty much just been watching TV for the past month. However, here is a quick …
