When I ask myself, “What would Jesus do?” the answer isn’t, “Let people fend for themselves and on your own part do the same.” So, what am I to do?
Upon five years of marriage, I reflect on how bisected our lives now seem. Still young and yet, there has been such a discernible "before" and "after" to what we have known, an "adulthood" and a "childhood," which tended to overlap between the end of our engagement and immediately following our youthful wedding. The changing … Continue reading I Wonder– 5 Years of Marriage
Morality isn’t always black and white (but sometimes it is), and people are very gray. Empathy (both extended and received) is beyond price. Humans will pack bond with the oddest “other,” such as inanimate objects. You can handle more pain than you think, both physically and emotionally. Depression is a bitch, even if it’s not … Continue reading Things I Have Learned So Far — “When I Should be Sleeping” Edition
She holds his heart in her hands. Bloody to the elbows, it throbs against her fingertips.
TL;DR -- My update schedule told me to blog. I have pink hair. Graduated college again. Anxiety is awful. Random oversharing. I'm making questionable choices. Our house is infested by ants. My Husband and I have different emotional needs, and that's okay. My blog schedule says I'm supposed to update about my life today.

Panic traces the shell of my ear, whispers with its fingertips. It promises. Compulsion holds, caresses with the hands of a shallow lover. I still between.
I wrote this disability report for my class on children with special needs. I really want to share it. Maybe you have ADHD, or maybe you know someone who does. Maybe you think you have it, but you've never been diagnosed. I see you. ❤ (Also, I added memes. I cannot resist memes!) This past … Continue reading Struggling in Real Time: A Glimpse into Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Ha ha ha ha ha ha--Wow. A little self-depreciating humor. I actually made myself laugh. The title means to reference what is PHYSICALLY wrong with me. Not the OCD/anxiety stuff. That's another issue I've been very frank about. Now that I'm over the hump of my issues (hopefully and thankfully!?), I'm going to tell you … Continue reading What is actually wrong with me? (No, not those other things.)
