  • The Year of Wee

    In 2019, I was texting my Dad on New Years Day “Happy New Year”. At the time I had my old iPhone SE the 6 in a 5’s body. Ya know how Apple like to do. I loved that phone, but texting was a total nightmare. Autocorrect had me saying all kinds of unintentional things, […]

  • Don’t Mind Me

    Don’t Mind Me

    Don’t Mind Me by Jacqueline Arend There are moments where I can’t bear it. There is so much inside of me, so many different feelings, thoughts, ideas pulling and tugging at my being. Working through these moments are a blessing… so don’t mind me. A friend asked me recently if I’ve always been conscious, “woke”, […]

  • Golly… Finding Your Identity

    … I struggle with this topic and my interest in sharing with people. On one end, I don’t think it should be a big deal, but on another, it’s been a part of me my entire life, never truly addressed. It’s about my identity.

  • Life is Magic

    Magic For someone who loves all of those synonyms, I certainly buy into how magical moments can be. I still work everyday to stay present, for that is the only way you’d really connect into the splendor of it. Ultimately, travel or any new experience is a fantastic way to live in the present and […]

  • I’m Falling

    I’m falling fearful and nervous. I’m calling trust and faith. I’m uncomfortable scared and unsure. I’m able to land on my feet. Be brave, Be bold, Be beautiful. This is what I like to say to myself and to others. This is what I’ve consciously wanted to be since summer of 2017. Pardon me while […]

  • This AWEsome Life

    This AWEsome Life

    Over the last week I traveled twice for student film shoots. Once to Tucson & once to Flagstaff. Both quick and easy day trips that took four hours round trip that make you realize, we are not as far from the rest of the world as we may think. The sights are gorgeous and you […]

  • Once Upon A Summer In Chicago

    In 2005 I was turning 26. The prior few years I had been meandering through life. Before the year began my summer in Chicago was planned & paid. Life changing. It was a Nee Year. It was my late coming of age summer.
