Ask me anything

Tired.

I pride myself on being a creative person. I can come up with wild, yet accurately descriptive, verbal comparisons for my current state of being. In fact, people comment all the time on my ability use a ridiculous television reference, nature metaphor, or…

Called to be Uncomfortable

Last night I was Skyping a friend. Half-jokingly, half-not I said something along the lines of “I’m called to not-America”. Keep in mind, this was in the context of a conversation, it’s not how I start normal conversations. But afterwards I got to…
