I like to color. Don't judge me. It's actually quite a popular pastime as of late. I've been amazed at how many people talk about enjoying their "adult coloring books." Why not? I've always loved coloring! It takes away stress and lets the creative juices replenish in...

I used to say that writing is like breathing. Without it, I would suffocate.

I started writing when I was in high school. Really writing. I took a role-playing game my bestie and I did and turned it into a novel. I'd always liked creative writing, but had no idea how mu...

I'll just come right out and say it now: I'm no sculptor. So be kind. The last time I sculpted anything was... well okay, never. The closest I've come is probably using molding modeling clay in grade school. That said, here is my masterpiece:

I went on a vacation this year. That may not seem like something to write home about (or rather, blog about), but for me, that’s a big deal. I’ve taken a lot of trips. But actual “vacation”? Nope. Not really.

This year though… this year was all about the big road trip....

"No! Don't do it! You do not want to be in school for another 2 or 3 years, trust me. You're barely over halfway through this little adventure to get your associate's degree. Why torture yourself more?"
