Another of life’s inevitabilities. When i play my songs for people, my voice is compared to Sarah McLachlan by 3 out of 5. Not the same music style, but this makes me happy. And i’m getting closer to done, a couple music videos to go, but getting ANXIOUS to share with EVERYBODY! Some of you may geek-out on this Science Fiction Spaceships Comparison When you are being interviewed for a job, you are absolutely being compared to the other applicants. Check out these more obscure interview questions from Apple, Google, and Amazon I’m a minimalist when it comes to home decor (& in my monochromatic dressing) I love how these city posters are similarly designed using the icons of each … Read More

  It can be difficult to fully express ourselves; be vulnerable, raw, and exposed. It also turns out to be the most beautiful, beneficial, and fulfilling thing. And for those who don’t appreciate it or reciprocate, it is their loss.

(this post does not contain the word foodie; please discard it like über!) What matters is where our mind is.

I don’t know which came first, the not desiring it or not eating it? It’s a great cycle to be in. I’m also an a-typical female about chocolate; I can live without it. I think alcohol is my only ‘sugar’, but that’s another unwritten post…lol This being said, I still love food blogs and restaurant reviews. I live through these vicariously though, … Read More

I had a great time behind the camera all day Monday, but a slew of articles having been landing in my inbox covering this topic and I find it non-coincidental. Seth Godin on Fearlessness is Not The Absence of Fear Kierkegaard on Anxiety and Creativity There was a great article in this past week’s New Yorker about a Zen Buddhist monk whom helps with the prevention of suicides in Japan (a place with the highest suicide rate in the world) This really resonated with me. A prime example of constructively harnessing any fear…   Very detailed info graphic. The Where and the Why. The Deadliest Countries for Journalist Metaphorically speaking, on the topic. Objects Exploding Out of Light Bulbs Boom!
