Poetry Corner: Daffodils

With springtime now alive and well, as I discussed last week, I've been decorating my house with flowers, since I don't have a garden to plant them in (yet). Last week, I bought two succulents, and today I walked out of Wal-Mart with some pink flowers and a pot to plant them in. To celebrate… Continue reading Poetry Corner: Daffodils

Wise Words #4: On Loneliness

Resources for Christian Singles on Valentine’s Day

Usually, I try to stay positive on Valentine’s Day. I've written about bubbly love songs and Lord of the Rings Valentine's cards (see below), and I usually stick to happy topics like this  out of defiance because no one else seems to enjoy Valentine’s Day, not even couples.

The Dangerous Side Effects of Overthinking

Overthinking is my talent. I'm a natural. If you ever need someone to overthink a situation, call me up and I'll get the job done. But seriously. The same qualities that contribute to my vivid imagination and ability to notice small details also cause me to overthink...overly. Having lived with this quality for over a… Continue reading The Dangerous Side Effects of Overthinking

Wise Words #2: Living in the Now

Stress. This last summer has been a whirlwind of ups and downs entirely built on stressful circumstances. At least, that’s how I’ve felt. A few weeks ago, I completed my MLIS degree—thank goodness—officially ending my school career. No matter what anyone says, I vow that I will never get my Ph.D. Of course, I said… Continue reading Wise Words #2: Living in the Now
