Removing myself from everything I built, always knew, and defined myself as, to live abroad, doing something I’ve never done, taught me a few things that has made me more grounded than I’ve ever been. They are things that I really wish everyone gets a chance to realize in this lifetime. Because life is too […]Read More
We are better than this.
We are better than the fights.
We are better than the shootings.
We are better than the filming of these events.
We are better than the numbness we have to tragedy.

Hello Darling, Even being able to say that warms my heart. You are my darling. And I am so happy that you are here. I have waited 679 days to love you. 679 days precisely, of imagining everything you would be like to keep me afloat on tough days. Of imagining the way you’d have […]Read More
