Am I an Artist? + Rejection

I’m getting my Master’s in Counseling: Art Therapy. In high school, I was an art major. You’d think I would have an easier time calling myself an artist but for some reason it still feels weird in my mouth. Maybe it’s because I feel like my work is not magnificent or maybe because I feel […]

Book Nook: The Alchemist

This is my second time reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The first was as a high school sophomore in my Survey Lit. class.

Life As A Kitty-Sitter

About a month ago a new fur baby came into my life, thanks to my brother. His name is Snow. I never thought I would be a “cat-person” but oh how wrong I was. We see all these things about how cats are mean but they can also be very cuddly. Yes I sometimes end […]
