Sometimes I get all gung-hoe about writing on this blog, and then I just don’t.  Ha ha. You know what I really love to do?  Write out and figure out my finances.  I get paid every two weeks and I have a Google Sheet on my Drive where I just write down the total to all […]

Oh my goodness holy cow.  This book consumed me and I really thought it was my life playing out in the words.  It is so beautifully written and I found myself putting it down more than I really wanted to just so it would last longer.  I just… wow.  Ha ha. And I don’t really […]

Here is a before, during, and after of my haircut! Well, it was mostly just a color. We kept the length and only cleaned up the hair on my neck. There is a bunch of blonde throughout it all and I just love it. I feel… pretty. The last few months I’ve struggled with acne […]

I took Spanish in middle school, and really, the only Spanish that stayed in my head were words like, “quesadilla” or “taco.”  A real crowd pleaser is always “me gusta comer” (I like to eat!) for sure. Incidentally, when I lived in Ukraine and natives would speak to me in Russian and Ukrainian, I often […]

just start

I’m just a big chicken liver baby.  This blog terrifies me.  Feelings terrify me.  I haven’t written a blog post in quite awhile and I’m thinking I probably should.  But like, I’m scared.  Truth is, only Sara Po’oi reads this blog (I love you!) but like, what if a stranger reads it and knows I […]

hobby and hobbies

I really need a new hobby, you guys.  I really, really like to read but I’m suddenly feeling a need for something new.  I really like to travel, but I’m broke.  BROKE.  What if I turn working out into a hobby?  Hahahaha, just kidding, like I would do that. Last fall I painted a desk.  It […]

The good ole FB, where I spend waste way too much time looking up friends and stalking old flames. I’ve actually been pretty good at NOT doing the latter lately, so I deserve a big old pat on the back for that! Seriously, what good does it do me to see that an old flame […]

my talk in church

I have a lot of opinions about being single, because, you know, I’m single.  My fury has been calming down lately though, which is so nice.  I don’t like to be moody or angry about stinky boys, it’s exhausting.  So, I’ve been (unintentionally) taking a break from dating, and let me tell you, it has […]

Okay, I really suck at blogging.  Like, I get “busy” and have a “writer’s block” or I don’t think my life is interesting enough.  Well, that’s a lie.  Working in an Emergency Room gives me A LOT of really great stories, but I think it’s in bad taste to post those stories online.  I posted a […]

some mission selfies

Oh man, I miss these days!  I mean, my mission was so incredibly hard, as all worthwhile things are, and it was so worth it.  I had meltdowns and just wanted to take naps and would have to go to hours upon hours of church, which, if you know me, was really hard.  Ha ha.  But man, […]
