I’ve been riding a wave lately…one of those waves that violently crash down then swell back up. Life has been up + down, over + over. I started out the winter season excited about a full-time job in the medical field but a month later I was drowning in the Read more…

At the moment I’m bouncing about, overly stoked on life. Why?! Because I got up before the sunshine, pretended to go climbing indoors [it’s been a while, I’m rustier than I care to admit] + got productive. All of this happened before any sort of caffeine even seeped into the Read more…
