Hall of Mirrors

Back in the era of Marie Antionette and Louis XIV having mirrors was a sign of great wealth. I am talking a hand mirror. If you had two? That would have been a big deal. Louis XIV wanted people to talk of Versailles and for everyone across the world to talk of Versailles. That would... Continue Reading →

Hello London

I read that this would happen. The traveling blues. I am definitely feeling the bittersweet end of my travels. In one week, I will be home and getting back to the American Reality of a life I have in Georgia. I miss the people I met and the friends I have made. I miss the... Continue Reading →

It is surreal and I realize how little I have actually done in preparation for this solo excursion. I am excited and so flippin' nervous.  What was meant to... Continue Reading →

Heart-Shaped Sungasses

Life is what you make it, seriously! I hated always hearing that as it frustrated me deeply to hear something put so simply, yet so complicated. I see this phrase best when describing it with a sunglass metaphor. How you see the world depends on how you process the world, like a filter on your... Continue Reading →

Au revoir

With New York down in the books, and it was an epic adventure, I am shocked at my bravery to which I just pulled the trigger to do. I always pushed myself to be academically successful, as well as professionally. I have done very well in those areas, but haven’t given myself the needed time,... Continue Reading →
