With February in rolling around the corner, I’m finishing up January in my bullet journal and setting up February. January was my first month journaling and I’m changing quite a bit for February. I mention this because it’s important to understand, just like it may have taken years to figure out how to take effective notes in lectures, your journaling method is going to require tweaking. There we’re several trackers I seldom… Read More
This January I decided to start bullet journaling. I was always the type of person who kept notes everywhere, I had sticky notes in every room, digital notes in five separate places between by laptop and phone; I would start recording certain things in a journal, just to forget and start using a different one, only to then come back to the original, and use it for something else. Needless to say,… Read More
Ah, the mighty sandwich.. a myriad of opportunity and potential. From the simple sliced tomato, olive oil, and salt joined between two thick slices of ciabatta, to the gourmet and extravagant loaves of artisanal bread marrying within their crusts lavish meats, exotic vegetables, succulent fungi, and sauces requiring the precision of a tenure chemist to reproduce. Today a sandwich can be made from anything, you don’t even need the bread, but don’t… Read More
A little candle can send photons rolling down mountains and across valleys; it can cast shadows that would bring down giants. The flickering flame off a candle can seem so mundane in contrast to a midday Texas summer sun, but in a dark cavern it is a precious gift to guide you home. Certain days light is all around, easy to find, hold, and revere. Others it seems like only a fable… Read More
Morning, 0600. The perfect time to wake up. I always found the morning hours seem to last for a time and a half. The amount of productivity I experience between 0600-0900 would take me the equivalent of 6 hours in the rest of the day. This is my gilded time. My favorite time. Why wake up at any other hour? Once I build the strength to get out from under my fortress… Read More
This past week I checked off a big source of stress from my schedule. After missing deadlines due to everything from clerical errors to significant distress, I completed and submitted my application for graduate school. It’s a massive weight off my shoulders so in celebration I’ve spent the majority of yesterday and today outside, breathing in nature, and reading. I finally finished an absolutely brilliant book I started several months ago titles… Read More
She rose to great heights, Now dancing among the skies, A nightly festival of lights, Gorgeous art to the eyes. Laying in a field of many, Crowned in a halo of gold, Love always in plenty, Beyond any had foretold. Rest, sweet queen, In memory you’ll remain, With us in every scene, Between Tokyo and Spain. I miss you, Sunflower.
Some days you get writers block for a few hours, some times you get a life encompassing mental block for weeks. The world doesn’t end, your progress isn’t wasted, it’s okay. I started writing on WordPress to be a place I can record and organize the thoughts bouncing around my head. I wanted to write daily, or at least every other day. I wanted to explore poetry, showcase my photography, connect with… Read More
