Mind Dump: UNC Shooting

I'm currently taking a mental health for occupational therapy course and each week we start with a short mindfulness activity. These activities have been really great and I've learned a few new techniques to calm and center myself, but going into those different techniques isn't the point of this post.

Trevor’s Engagement Ring?

Ever heard of a man-gagment ring? I hadn't either until a few months ago when one of my male co-workers was wearing his wedding ring before his wedding.

A New Meaning to Christmastime

As you grow up, the holidays tend to change meaning. We can all recite from childhood that the "best part about holidays are being with your family" ... or at least that is what we were supposed to say. In reality we were all excited to get back to school in third grade and show… Continue reading A New Meaning to Christmastime

How did I survive?

The time has come where I can say that I <somehow> survived my first semester of grad school. It feels great! That's so weird to say... I'm in grad school? Time really does fly. I remember when I was a freshman in the program and accidentally turned in a one page paper formatted in only… Continue reading How did I survive?
