This is the first year I’ve been a gisher, and I’m sad to say it looks like this year is the last year this awesome event is happening. For those of you who don’t know, GISHWHES stands for The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. GISHWHES is more than just your typical … Continue reading My 2017 GISHWHES Experience

Sometimes I’m aware enough to leap aside into a puddle creating a much smaller mess than life had planned, but most of the time life succeeds in creating a bloody spectacle that … Continue reading Let Life Happen or Make it Happen?
Today’s blog doesn’t relate to writing or dogs at all. Today’s blog is about Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, a band that got me through so many dark hopeless nights that I could never put their impact on me into words. He passed away yesterday 7/20/2017 from an apparent suicide. I'm still processing … Continue reading Chester Bennington… How to Put This into Words

I wasn’t sure I was going to write about this, after all this is a personal topic that touches many people I know. But tomorrow I’m leaving with my father to attend my grandfather’s funeral and it’s all I can think about. He’s my third grandparent to pass, but this is the first funeral I’ve … Continue reading Preparing for my first Funeral
That’s right, I’m already over summer. It’s a sad thing because summer has always been my favorite season. I love summer. It’s warm, I get to run around barefoot, and I get to swim.
