Why Les Misérables is a reminder to never give up hope

A few years ago I wrote about the most perfect summer day:  I woke up and water skied with my dad and grandfather in the morning, and then ended up in New York City in the afternoon to see Les Misérables on Broadway with my grandfather and grandma. Les Misérables is easily one of my favorite Broadway shows. It’s simply… Continue reading Why Les Misérables is a reminder to never give up hope

How to plan and achieve realistic New Year’s resolutions

In my last blog post, we spoke about reasons behind making New Year’s resolutions. This time around, I want to touch on how to make New Year’s resolutions that we can actually achieve (which I also spoke about in my latest YouTube video). Yes, I did say that I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions.… Continue reading How to plan and achieve realistic New Year’s resolutions

2020: A Life Changing Year

It took me until the day before New Year’s Eve to get my thoughts together. Well, they’re not together, but I am hoping by the end of this post they will be.  Another year has gone by. Wow. And what a year it’s been.  Last year at this time, I had just left my first… Continue reading 2020: A Life Changing Year

CA to NJ: Day 8 — Homeward bound

The last day of the cross country trip arrived, and I had never been more excited to get on the road. “Why?” you may ask. Well, the previous night I told Pop Pop that I saw a town that didn’t seem too far off of the route and told him I would love to stop… Continue reading CA to NJ: Day 8 — Homeward bound

CA to NJ: The emotion I was not expecting to visit

I knew I would be emotional coming to Los Angeles just to leave again (and for good), but I didn’t expect to care about leaving my apartment and friends so much. When I landed at LAX, I was greeted by my always cheerful roommate, and we met up with our coworker for dinner and drinks… Continue reading CA to NJ: The emotion I was not expecting to visit

It’s the Last Day of July

Congratulations! If you you’re reading this, you have made it through another month of a (somewhat worldwide, mostly United States) pandemic. How exciting! My excitement is actually quite surprising to me, because in my last "It's the" post I said didn’t know when I would write again due to my lack of excitement. I also… Continue reading It’s the Last Day of July

It’s the Middle of July

It’s now the middle of July and I didn’t write about the meaning of “adventure” as I promised. I didn’t write at all in June, which I hate, but understand. It didn’t feel right at the time to talk about anything because there was, and still is, so much distress in America. Don’t get me… Continue reading It’s the Middle of July

It’s the Last Day of May

How has it been two months since I posted? I didn’t mean to let that time slip away, but I just could not bring myself to write. So much has happened since I last posted, and it never really felt like the right time to say anything. I left California on March 18, which is… Continue reading It’s the Last Day of May
