The First 16 Weeks

There is nothing more joyous in life than babies and I’m fortunate enough to now have two! Not human babies (though they are awesome too). Instead I adopted two puppies into my life. It has been pretty rough since my last dog passed away. Anyone who’s ever had a dog pass knows that something feels like…

Wet Dog Food: Batch One

The first batch of food I made was made when Ava and Mishka were 12 weeks old. I used it as a supplement to puppy food, but didn’t take them off it completely. Puppies require more specific nutritional demands, and I didn’t feel knowledgeable enough to take on that endeavor. However, feeding two big puppies…

Mishka and Ava

Oh, where to begin? A lot has happened for me lately. A lot. One thing is I’ve moved again. Can’t say I enjoyed moving, or the reasoning behind it – me. Where I was living, at my mom’s old house, just wasn’t working for me or my MS in a variety of ways. Now, I’m…

The Casualties of Having MS

Some of you already know this, but I recently fell and obtained some pretty serious damage. This will be the post detailing what I know so far. So what happened? Literally nothing interesting or exciting. At least, not at first. The after-effects were pretty dramatic. The beginning started just like any other day. I was…

Me Too

***Warning!!! Sensitive Content*** Triggers: Attempted rape of a minor, Molestation, Graphic Language. This is not a blog for everyone. I’ve tried to write this post many times. True to form, I’ve struggled. I might be pretty upfront about things that have happened to me. Unfortunately, the events mentioned here give me anxiety and cause me…

My Journey With MS (So far)

This blog is choppy for sure and hella long. Yeah, I know I’ve blogged about this subject before. But this has been nagging at me, and 70 percent of it has been written since May anyway so… When I was a child, my greatest skill sets revolved around being an athlete. I was constantly outside…

I Am Scared

God, how to even start this one… I’ll do my best, but this one might be a bit jumbled, which is kind of perfect since that is how I feel right now: jumbled, scrambled, in tatters, in pieces. Why? Because tomorrow is the day I move back up to Bloomington. Tomorrow is the day I…

I’m 21… Finally!

This is gonna be a short post. When I was younger, I was introduced to the song Twenty-One by Corey Smith. I used to sit outside staring at the stars while listening to it, thinking over the lyrics of a man who spent his whole life wanting to be twenty-one. First, he wanted to be…

Vacation In A Wheelchair

Late on a Saturday night, I arrived home from my first vacation where I was unable to walk from place to place. Yes, as you already know, I was in a wheelchair for almost the entirety of the trip. I say almost, but I’ll get to that later. The idea behind the vacation started when…

Let me list a few small life events that occurred since the last time I blogged. 1. I got engaged! Yay! 2. I graduated college (the next weekend)! 3. I got an *adult* job! No pictures for this one…unless you’re interested in seeing my LinkedIn profile photo. All of…
