Stuck In A Rut & That’s Okay


Writing is hard. Writing that sentence was hard, and it wasn’t even a sentence – it was a mere three words. It took me about 1.5 seconds to put my fingertips to the clicking of a keyboard to articulate that emotion and I feel utterly exhausted. Literally, I could do with a nap right now. […]

Jumping For Joy


It was Saturday night and we were careening down a curvy road headed towards the Cache National Forest.

On Depression & Anxiety
