Can We Please Stop and Appreciate?

The airport floor is so patched and greasy it looks like a shot of black coffee, an eighteen-hour-built-state-of-loopy-exhaustion, and a shoulder devil named Boredom drove person after person to survive their grueling layovers by dropping their McDonalds to splat on the floor for entertainment purposes. And then proceeded to convince them that rubbing it into… Continue reading Can We Please Stop and Appreciate?

Recent Pictures (and the stories behind them) | feat. what I do while I’m stuck at home

I was scrolling through my photos the other day and realized I've taken a lot more photos as of late, as I do things and send them to friends to keep them updated and as they do the same in return.

I remember those days we sat on the dirty floor of the dark classroom pouring over your iPad early in the morning every week while all the moms were busy.

Rambles at the 25 yard line

Good afternoon peeps! Today is a great day. Today is my break week.
