Hello there. I'm currently house/pet sitting for some dear friends of mine, so I'm pretty happy that I actually remembered that it's a blogging day. Especially as I am right smack in the middle of a Planet Earth binge. How have I not watched this show before? What have I been doing with my life? … Continue reading Pretty Dang Majestic.
Ugh. I'm having one of those days. Okay, weeks. Okay, months. Okay, lives. Yeah, this probably isn't that inspiring, but maybe I at least elicited a snort of recognition and comradeship? I just can't today, y'all. I just can't.
Driving up the freeway a week or so back, I saw a sign hanging from the rollercoaster of our local water park: Haunted House - Now Hiring! And I just thought that was worth sharing.

Manchester, London, Orlando... the list just keeps growing. This verse has been circling around and around in my head and in … Continue reading Take Heart.
So. I'm coming to the end of a 2-ish month stint of co-hosting a dear friend's Airbnb property while she is off on her world travels, and it's been quite a fun learning curve, all in all. Especially after this weekend, which over here in the States was a big holiday. I had three sets … Continue reading 5 Things I have Noticed about Myself while working in the Hospitality Industry.
Occasionally, I like keeping myself inspired by blowing my own mind. One of the ways I like to do this is by doing some science research. I don't have a math/science brain, so I never have any idea what I'm studying, but it's sure fun. Now, this all started with a friend of mine.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." -Jesus of Nazareth My heart is bleeding for all the families affected by the Manchester bombing last night, and my prayers are with … Continue reading Prayers for Manchester.
I'm really into listening to Old English at the moment. Maybe it's due to the fact that I'm reading The Hobbit for the first time (Nope, I never read it as a kid. I know, horrible, right?), or maybe it's just because I'm a nerd. At some point I'd like to give the language a … Continue reading Rambling about a Dead Language.
