Holl in Montreal

I’ve been living in Montreal for three months now. I don’t know if it feels like it’s been much longer or much shorter but I’m starting to understand my surroundings a little bit. Almost two years ago exactly, I left Montreal after spending two months here. I learned so much about myself in that time…… Continue reading Holl in Montreal

New Year, Slightly Improved Me

Over the last year, one thing I’ve determined that I find great value in is sticking with things. I’ve always been a very passionate and enthusiastic person so when I discover something new that grabs my attention, I want to jump right in. Of course, and I think this is true for most people, time…… Continue reading New Year, Slightly Improved Me

24.

It’s so hard to believe that I just turned 25! The marking of time passing is so strange because I think of my twenty-second birthday and it feels like it was ages ago, like I’ve lived a few different lives since then, and at the same time it seems weird to me that three whole…… Continue reading 24.

My Shadow Comforts & Setting Personal Boundaries

About a month ago, upon rounding out my third consecutive hour of MTV’s “Are you the one?” (a must-see), I realized suddenly that it was 4pm and sunny outside. My day was almost gone… Ugh.

One thing I am full of is passion and all these things that I’m-not-exactly-an-expert on, help embellish my life with zest, comfort, fun, and…… Continue reading Home Sweet Cave

Reflections on Moving (and moving, and moving)

Few experiences in life beg reflection of you as relentlessly as packing up all of your belongings and moving them to a new place. In the last 3 years, I’ve moved my stuff (or a large portion of it) to ten different apartments in various cities. One of the best things that has happened to…… Continue reading Reflections on Moving (and moving, and moving)

Giving Thanks + Being Brave

This was my third Thanksgiving that I’ve spent very far from my family. While I am extremely close to my mom, dad, and sister, living outside of Oregon for most of the last 2 years has resulted in the loss of some traditional family holidays. I’ve found that the holidays are weird when you live…… Continue reading Giving Thanks + Being Brave
