Thank you for joining me on this new adventure with a blog! I’ll admit that I’m extremely nervous to start posting and publishing things- there’s just something so real and raw about writing to me, let alone writing for the world to see. Writing has always been something very special and dear to my heart, and I’ve always kept it close. But with time, I’ve come to realize that there’s a certain depth and power that words hold in this world, and they deserve to be taken seriously. As much as I enjoy being a private person, I no longer think it’s adequate to merely keep my thoughts and articulations to myself, ESPECIALLY if they can be used to help someone. Through sharing my life, my experiences (the beautiful and the ugly), and my perspectives on the world as a whole, my eyes have been opened to new waves of life I never anticipated, but am equally grateful for. Through all the hills and valleys that comprise this wonderful life, I have found that sometimes in the wave of change, you really do find your direction. And sometimes, it takes losing yourself a little in order to really be found. I don’t think I’ll ever be done exploring every inch of who I am and discovering, losing, and re-finding myself again, but that’s what makes this life so beautiful and worthwhile. Who we are and what we do is never done growing and changing, and that’s something to be cherished. Right now, this is the place I have found myself in. And I cannot wait to see where this path leads me- today, tomorrow, and in my future.
I am so, so excited to start this new journey and share my thoughts, writings, and reactions to the world with you all, and I hope that through creating this type of space, I can either spark the interest of some people or provide solace for even just one. I anticipate incorporating everything that I love and interests me most on this site, so expect to see lots of philosophical inquiries, commentaries on our contemporary political state, poetry, and talks about my life and the world in general. Although I definitely have some ideas in mind about where I want to take this blog, please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion at any point if you’s like me to write about something specific. Thank you all for your continued support. Always.
Sometimes in the wave of change, we find our direction.

I know this isn’t about you, but can you talk about your sister that came out? I feel like we’ll never truly understand the struggles they go through and I want to try to understand it more! I also don’t understand how white, republican, heterosexuals have problems or think it’s wrong to be LGBTQ+
Hmm, that would definitely be something I’m willing to do, but seeing as it’s not really my story to tell, I will have to communicate with my sister to ensure that she’s okay with me telling her story. I can obviously give my account of what I think the hardships are (as well as discuss the political underminings of it all), but the first-hand account will first require her permission for me to tell it. Hope this helps! I will definitely try my best to get this blog composed! (:
You write so beautifully! I think a great topic to talk about would be growing up mixed races. How that effected you if people were ever mean to you because of it and how you ignored the hate (if you even ever got any).
Thank you so much !! That’s a great idea— I can definitely write about my experience being biracial and the impact it’s had on me. Thanks for the comment! 😊
