Do You Even Remember ME?

  My heart still beats. I believe we left off 2 years ago in May of 2016 when I was still somewhat crippled from a 2015 car wreck, bored & unemployed in Long Beach, California living with my man in a ¬†small shack like box apartment after a spur of the moment relocation from Northern…

Diy Skin Care : Organic Lemon Verbena Body Butter 

Universe. There is a specific way She speaks to me. It’s almost like several whispers between the trees telling me to go in the same one direction. I’ll have the same sight of something multiple times, an old friend will reappear in my life to remind me of my art – a deliberate swift kick…

Gifts From a Violent Universe.

Pain has been dwindling down to mostly none and chiropractic appointments are down to once per month – when my body becomes skewed to the right and said leg goes numb. I then develop a crick in my neck for 4 days and a headache that feels like a bullet to the brain.  Or maybe…

Making Soap Instead of Dinner.

03.20.2016 Long Beach, ca It has been a long time since I decided to snatch my skills away from traditional restaurant work. While I miss the action sometimes, I do not miss the time-suck, getting punished or doing the punishing for something stupid like putting the wrong fruit on a cake for decoration, or not…

Vegetarianism and Other Ways to Practice Commitment.

Commitment is the number one aspect of life I have yet to master. In fact I have yet to even get my feet wet. I dodge bullets like no other, believing in my heart that there will always be a place with greener grass and using my age as an excuse to not even try…

Introverted Hollywood Rogue.

Long Beach, Ca 02.25.2016 My days have been at their most content. My MacBook showed a sign of life the other morning when I had a dream that inspired me to plug it in and turn it on. Upon plugging it in, the charger turned Amber for the first time since the spill, then when…

Foodie Adventures: Thai District.

Long Beach, Ca 02.11.16  Amazing how we are granted great days just when we need them, or maybe great food is the best way to make any day spectacular. Yesterday my guy and I spent the entire day as a date. Since I am still new to this section of California, I also took this…

Designing a New Path for Yourself.

Spilling water on my MacBook last week is now being looked at as one of the healthiest events that could have happened. It wasn’t too unfortunate as it revealed to me how much of real life I was avoiding. How many phone calls went unmade, how many letters unreturned, how many forms were not filled…

Choosing a Theme for Your Life.

Resilience. The ability to connect the dots in my own life has lent me the patience and faith to calm my stress and see things through.  Along my journey I’ve found that although I could never see, predict, or dream of what might be in store for me in this life, I must let it…

Small Problems.

I’ve been hit with a ton of bad luck over the last two weeks and all of it added to my regret of ever returning home in the first place. I still have to take care of business matters and wait for my passport so while my return is “justified” it still feels entirely unnatural…

Bad Luck or a Cursed Necklace?

It is a cliche plot of a horror film that a young girl about my age is out traveling and finds a piece of jewelry on a beach or in her accommodation, and decides to wear it and take it home as a way to remember her experiences. As she puts it on, she makes…
