Coming From Where I’m From: Bridging “D” Gap!

So this is it, the end of my feature. My last contribution comes to you courtesy of the lovely, helpful, and supportive D of Life in the D Lane. I truly appreciate your time as I know you’re writing for various online magazines/sites, so a huge thank you for you time.  I hope you all enjoy and visit D’s page sometime. She’s a riot and I adore her, she’s one of the reasons I need to make it to New York this year! Continue reading

Coming From Where I’m From: The Tram Stamp (…of Approval)

As always I’d like to start out by saying thank you to my contributor for dedicating time and energy to do this for me. I feel your pride in this one.

28 Words & Thoughts

Sunday is my 28th birthday and I’ve asked 28 of you friends and family to share with me just one word that describes me in your mind. I wasn’t doing it for an ego boost, I was doing it to see if the person I want to be is coming through. I wanted to see which words would come up on the list and which words would not (in hopes of bettering myself). I also thought I’d share 28 thoughts on how I view myself. It’s been a rough year, but I’m still alive and that means I still have a chance to turn things around. I thank all of you for your amazingly kind words. I can’t promise to live up to these adjectives you’ve chosen, because I’m human and I falter at times, but thank you nonetheless. Have a great weekend. Continue reading
