October 16 I'm almost entirely right brained now, and I'm losing my capacity for language. Like in the split brain studies. Objectively speaking, I'm also at a higher risk of becoming suicidal than ever. Today, two professors called me "Grace" by accident. That doesn't seem like an accident. It's almost universal that I'm mistaken for … Continue reading Have A Day.
I knew these things to be true. That God would never give me more than I could bear. That I am being put through (hell)fire so that I can emerge a sharper tool for His marvelous purposes.

If I could summarize my second semester at college, it would be this: I have depression. I don't know how I would … Continue reading MIMI: “I’m nineteen, but I’m old for my age…”
For a writer, which most people are, the struggle is often not finding the right words to say, but choosing what to say itself. Once the idea takes seed, the words flow easily. Recently, my own source of inspiration has began to run dry and I have had little to say to the blank sheets. … Continue reading My State as a “Writer”

At a more sober time, I began to realize that I had written a potentially hurtful piece on how my own mother … Continue reading The Virtuous Wife: Her Children Rise Up
Last semester, my schedule could have driven anyone insane. Sometimes, you do just have to learn the hard way. This post will be more personal than what I normally put on my blog, because I typically hide behind the bigger ideas (of what I think and what I learn about society and science and the … Continue reading First Semester College: An Honest Assessment
All successful companies and people have mission statements. They have something that drives them onward to accomplish what they do. An internal motivation and integrity which stays constant no matter the mood or situation. Here's mine. During "Family Group" this week, we did an activity for about twenty minutes where we reflected upon the question … Continue reading Realignment: What’s My Why? a Mission Statement
