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…

Guess What…

I’m in a wheelchair. Yep, that’s right. I went from two feet to four wheels. It’s hard for me to say I’m okay with this transition or ready for it (My arms are incredibly out of shape which I’ll definitely have to work on before heading back to IU). Anyone who has read my previous…

My Writing Idea

I have this crazy idea of being a writer. Impossible though it seems, I’ve never been able to let go of this idea. It started in the sixth grade. No, I take that back. It started in the third or fourth grade with Harry Potter. Those books inspired me and brought something inside of me…

Who I Was and Who I Will Be

I don’t even know how to begin writing this wistful nothing of thought, but I guess I’ll start with this. I was never meant to be locked indoors. My makeup is to be outside with nature – to be part of it. I was born with energy pulsing through my body, an energy that is…

Days Eight – Fifteen

February 20 – 27 I’ve learned a few things so far while juicing. No one really told me how to do it or any tips about the juicing process itself. Here’s what I’ve learned about the process so far. It is seriously important to remove the stems on the vegetables before juicing them. The stems,…

Days Six and Seven

February 18 Today I have thrown myself into food. Not only eating it (I know, I know), but planning it. I am trying to figure out how to proceed from my juice cleanse to clean eating. Seems easy. No more pizza rolls, microwave meals, or Chinese take-out. Okay, I got that. But then I really…

Day Five

I really think I should put a conscious effort into not biting my nails. That’s really the first thing I though of this morning. That, and God my chest hurts. Seriously, it hurts to physically touch it’s so congested. I got some medicine yesterday and I’ve been taking it every four hours but so far…

Day Four

What a great day, am I right? Well, maybe not but my day was amazing. My chest cold, sinus infection, whatever illness kept me awake and woke me up early but three hours of sleep did not bring me down at all today. So, up I woke. I made the coffee for mom, took a…

Day Three

Photo by Danai Lina How I Stay Healthy and Sane (Most of the Time). She is found here on WordPress. Juicing is weird. Or at least for me. My lower abdomen, after a day of successful juicing, starts to feel tight and tingly. And it definitely starts to flatten out which is incredible. I don’t…
