30 before 30

30 before 30

Two weeks from today, I turn 26. I’ll officially be closer to 30 than 20, and honestly? That terrifies me. I feel like I’ve already lived so long without doing anything, and life is anything but a given. When you have Muscular Dystrophy, it’s even […]

I am literally always tired

I can’t even think about the fact that 2018 is next week. That just feels wrong and scary and way too futuristic. Remember when we were kids and we thought by 2020 we’d have flying cars and everything would be spacey and chrome? I’m having […]

My favorite Christmas traditions

My favorite Christmas traditions

My family has gone through some pretty huge life changes this year. We packed up and moved into a small apartment. It’s a long story and not one that I really feel comfortable sharing the details of on my blog, but it was a big […]

Feeling sad during the holidays

Feeling sad during the holidays

Okay, but really now, how is Christmas only 4 days away? How is that an actual thing? December just started. That can’t be right. I love the holidays and I love the anticipation of them. This time of year is supposed to be exciting and […]

A letter to 2017

A letter to 2017

Dear 2017, You started out a little rough. And by a little rough, I mean people all around the world got drunk and cried about your arrival because it meant the United States was going to lose its first Black president and have a hateful, unqualified, […]
