Life is hard nowadays. To quote Harry Potter, “These are dark times, there’s no denying.” The bees are dying, the US government is being controlled by a reanimated sock puppet, Brexit is actually happening I guess, they just took the X Files off Netflix. It’s been rough. So sometimes, you just need to get lost

If you haven’t heard, the organizers of the now-historic Women’s March on Washington have organized another mass-scale protest against the tyranny, bigotry and hatred of this dystopian hellscape current administration. The concept is a day without women (today!), or a nationwide strike of women from jobs of all varieties. It’s certainly a powerful thought, and hopefully

It’s March, the weather is turning, the weak sunlight is coming out from behind the clouds, and a tantalizing hint of spring is in the air. I can’t believe it’s already March in some ways, yet in others it seems like it should be nearly June. I thought I’d share some of the things I’m

March is Women’s History Month, so what better way to celebrate that than by reading some of the most essential feminist texts written by the best and brightest female writers. And I feel like I’m going to be starting every description with “this book changed my life” but in mosts cases, it’s 100% true.

It’s fairly easy to find time to work on a DIY project or write blog posts or take photographs or paint something when you’re in college, and your schedule consists of four classes every week and that’s about it. But

Last week, I made the 2,300 mile journey from Fremont, MI to Fremont, Seattle and it was everything I’d hoped it would be. It was my first time on the west coast, and it was absolutely gorgeous.   Some shots of (we think) Mount Rainier from the plane window coming into the SeaTac airport. We

I’ve been thinking a lot about other lives lately. I don’t mean like, past lives or anything. I mean, the possible other hypothetical lives we all have. The ones that could have existed if we’d made a few different choices in life. I don’t mean this in a bad way. I like how my life

              So I know that this is nothing new, but I’ve really been into vinyl lately. I’ve had a record player for about three years now, and I’ve always enjoyed it, but I really only had a small handful of records because, well, they’re expensive. But over the past

What’s Galentine’s Day? To quote Leslie Knope (patron saint of Galentine’s Day): “Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.” Sadly, Galentine’s Day falls on a Monday

So it’s no secret that I really love Instagram. The one thing I have continued to do as I took an unexpected break from blogging was to work on my Instagram feed aesthetic and photos. I’ve really enjoyed creating an aesthetic around my photos and working to produce better and better content. And because of
