Here’s a Quarter

I survived my first “Quarter Marathon” this weekend. And I’m pretty damn proud of it, not gonna lie. When I started running again, a year-ish ago, it was literally an attempt to run away from my problems. It has turned into something that I just really like doing. It has helped me drop close to 40 pounds now, and it…

I’m A Weirdo

I discovered something today. Not that I’m weird. I already knew that. The title of this post is not revelatory in any way. But, I still discovered something about myself today.

I cling to that hope, which will heal my brokenness.

After I heal, I will emerge, bright as the sun.



Happy Birthday To Me

It’s been a few weeks now, but on my birthday weekend this year, my chorus won another Regional Championship and will be representing our Region at the International Competition in Las Vegas in the fall of 2017. So exciting. We won with a record breaking score, the highest ever achieved at our Region and tied for the 7th highest ever at any…
