Living with Death

Living with Death

I have come to know that it [death] is an important thing to keep in mind — not to complain or to make melancholy, but simply because only with the honest knowledge that one day I will die I can ever truly begin to live.” —R.A. Salvatore, The Halfling’s Gem These words have become a basis for how Corey and I try to approach life. If anyone really knows him, they’ll know that he has this somewhat irrational fear of…

Feeding Your Soul

Feeding Your Soul

All throughout my childhood I hated when teachers welcomed students back from school breaks, because there was always that moment where everyone was able to share what they did over vacation. Deep down I resented each person who was able to raise their hand and say that they went on a trip outside of New England. I was never able to share any experiences, because my days of going to the park with my cousins were of no comparison to…

“Despite how much ‘we’re everything to each other,’ we’re really not.”

I don’t think anyone would’ve guessed that we’d still be together almost a decade later. Our relationship has grown from the infatuation stage of our (MANY) days of skipping high school, through the struggles of being a college student, and finally the beginning stages of our careers. We’ve supported each other through it all, and while we’re still developing as individuals, our relationship has been consistently developing as well.

The One Thing I Learned in The Philippines

The One Thing I Learned in The Philippines

I have been living the sweet life. Every since I quit my job in March, I’ve been able to travel across the country with my boyfriend and dog making stops in Asheville, the French Quarter, SXSW, White Sands, etc. We got settled in LA and decked out our bedroom to actually look suitable for two young adults. We then traveled to Vegas, and then Utah to experience the most beautiful skies either of us has ever laid eyes on. We…

Power Coupling

Power Coupling

I’ve heard from several people in the past that Corey and I are “a power couple.” I always took that to mean that we are financially stable and have our crap together, which I totally disagree with because our finances are a mess and we’re not very responsible with spending. Plus I struggle with what I want to do vs. what I should do on a daily basis and never seem to be content… During one of my long drives,…
