What My Blog Says About Me.

Lets be honest. I don’t put a whole lot of thought into my blog. I don’t have an editorial strategy of what I’m going to post. I do, however, put a lot of “me” into this space. The sub-theme, “Heaping Scoops Of My Brain,” isn’t just clever witticism, This space is really all about what…

Be Thankful; I Am.

I could write something super sentimental but I thought there’s a much better way to tell you what I’ve been thankful this year. Since I like to take pictures of just about everything, I thought I’d show you. Some Sports Firsts: I’ve been fortunate to attend two major sports events this year. My hometown teams,…

Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…

National Coming Out Day?

It’s once again National Coming Out Day. I meet this day with trepidation every year because I think that many people feel pressured to come out and do so fairly publicly. Coming out is a very personal decision. It’s not one that should be taken lightly, it’s ok to be who you are but it’s…

You’re Welcome?!?

This weekend, I got to volunteer for an inaugural all-girl 5K and half-marathon called Run Girl Run. It was a fun event, but there was something pretty interesting that happened to me. I mean, I was a volunteer. I just had to get up, get in the car, and get to the event. As a…

To Be Purposed To Death.

I’ve noticed a trend lately. Meetups & Tweetups are being turned into “Purposed” Meetings, CauseUps etc. I know everyone wants to feel like they’re doing some good, but I can’t help but wonder, are these just the new “Grip & Grin?” Maybe my purpose for going to tweetups is different than everyone else. I go…

Why Do We Care?

I was talking with a friend recently and the conversation turned to their feelings about how they were going to be viewed by another group. My instant reaction: “Eff them.” If they’re too busy spending time judging you for your opinions to actually enjoy you as a friend, why would you give them the time…

Remembering the beginnings

Something I have noticed far too much is that when we become great we stop doing the things that lead to our greatness. We spend so much time actually telling the world how great we are, or how we became great, but we never sustain those things which got us there. We abandon ourselves. This…

Guest Post: Judgment Between The Lines

This post brought to you by my friend Sarah Salter, her blog: Living Between The Lines offers me a fresh perspective from those who are outside my normal sphere. While I know you’re used to witty repartee and random musings of my travels, life, or feelings. I asked her to post something that she would…

Do You Believe then Belong or the reverse?

I heard an interesting generational statement not to long ago. It referenced the Older Generation’s ability to belong to something then believe in something, the person went on to say that my generation has to be convinced they believe something before they’re willing to belong. This stuck in my craw. I’ve been pondering that for…
