Love, Simon

I just saw the movie Love, Simon and besides it being a great movie with a lot of feels attached to it and a lot of messages in it, a few things came out of it for me. 1. "Sometimes I feel like I’m always on the outside, there’s this invisible line that I have to … Continue reading Love, Simon

Laughter

  Today a coworker came up to me and said, "You seriously have the cutest laugh ever." I, of course, laughed and said "Aw, thanks!" He continued, "No seriously.

Music Speaks….Listen

After going to a Demi Lovato concert with a few friends last night, I realized how much music speaks to me and the world. Demi, as a 25-year old star, has battled depression, bipolar disorder, drug addiction, an eating disorder, and many other unfortunate, yet self-defining and influential struggles in her life.

Lurking Shadows

Shadows are such sneaky things. They are always there no matter what time of day, but sometimes you can see them and sometimes you can't. Sometimes they imprint themselves on the heated pavement not to be affected by their surroundings, or over the beach chair to so kindly block the sun out of your friends' … Continue reading Lurking Shadows

Having a Life in My Hands

  Whenever a client walks through the door, it’s a clean slate. I must document and mentally file away the previous client, and recite a quick client profile in preparation for the next one walking through my doors. Some don’t want to talk, some want to vent, some talk about diabetes, some don’t. Either way, … Continue reading Having a Life in My Hands
