Wow… It has been TOO long. WAY too long…. And now, its the middle of summer! I just went to Pride Parade in Chicago for the first time and it was a really brilliant and beautiful experience.

Happy late Easter! And April fools! It’s Tuesday, April 3rd here and wow, seems like forever since I have been on here. I’ve been busy with school, I guess! Surely not busy enough to write a post… but I guess it has just slipped my mind. I’ve been taking dozens and dozens of photos, the […]Read more "Change IS Inevitable…"
ALMOST A MONTH LATER… I’m basically settled in! A few things here and there, but ISU is growing on me. I never thought that I would be able to adjust here or fit in, but I do; more than I did at NCC. I liked NCC, but here I feel like I can be successful […]Read more "Illinois State University"

When [I FINALLY] finished with the first book, I found it really interesting because it was kind of a challenge within a challenge… The challenge being to NOT be on technology as much, especially when trying to read a book. I find this funny because it kind of sets the stage for the rest of the […]Read more "One Out of Nine Done…"
Hi. I am starting this, 12:30am, but GOOD REASON… I have all of good reasons to be up early at the break of dawn!

Life. Changes. Quickly… After a term at North Central, I have realized that I need a set plan… and I don’t have one. I went through a term of classes and considering it was much faster paced and I just felt very disconnected from what I needed to do. Coming from Naperville Central High School, […]Read more "No Fake News Here…"
This Thanksgiving for my family was very different from the rest, I felt. Through tragedy and heartbreak last year in the beginning of the year with my grandma passing away; then my Uncle passed away a week before Thanksgiving. We ended up having my Uncle Jim’s wake an funeral the two days directly after Thanksgiving. […]Read more "Thanksgiving, 2017."
It was most definitely the longest, but shortest ten weeks of my life. This term went by SO fast, but it seemed as though everyday would drag on. I thought I had a lot of time, but by week five, I knew I most certainly did not. It’s hard to explain how this term felt […]Read more "Ten Weeks…"
This article has nothing to do with frogs, but toaday, I made it relevant because I genuinely forgot to add like five different things to this blog post before sharing it… Ha.Ha.Ha….

Until I’m done working at Jewel for a while. Until I have to say goodbye to my best friends as they go off to college. Until my hair is a different color. Until I can really begin to focus on more photography. Until I start college! Now don’t get me wrong, I liked working at […]Read more "Only A Few More Days"
I’m on vacation. Rhode Island! It’s pretty. It’s small, but so big too! I have eaten seafood and I have met some very interesting people! I am also figuring out how to do more for myself. How to be more independent and how to do more of the things I love. When college starts, I’ll […]Read more "Starting This Week…"
I wrote a post a few days ago, but at the time of me writing it, there was no purpose for me to post it. Now, I am writing because I still have no idea what to say. It’s the middle of summer and everybody is out doing their own thing. From climbing mountains to […]Read more "Well, Okay."
“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” – The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Well, I am excited to see the new opportunities that college will offer me, but it truly is intimidating. I’ll be […]Read more "“The Start of Something New”"
Everything we do, every day, changes us. Conversations between people can change our moods, I for one had to stop typing for a day because of the way I had been feeling at the time. When we wake up in the morning, when you look in the mirror; what do you think to yourself? Your […]Read more "Small Things, Big Things"
First, flip your screen upside down to try and read the title… You probably have no idea what that means haha… Lens flipping is exactly like a macro (micro or “smaller than life”) lens and it is exactly what it sounds like. Taking the lens off of your camera and flipping it. Getting VERY close […]Read more "ƃuᴉddᴉlɟ suǝ˥"
I went to a new trail today that had been right by my house, forgetting it was always there. I didn’t stay too long, but it was really beautiful and small. I found some amazing bugs and my friend, Malorie, pointed out this crazy spider web with a spider in it. I usually don’t like spiders, […]Read more "Little Trail"
In the beginning of April I joined a soccer team with some of my best friends.

These special kids are the funniest, smartest, most positive and unique individuals I have ever […]Read more "New Friends, New Family"
