Dating.

Almost a year ago, I published a short post, elaborating on my thoughts on being single and dating. Around that time, I was beginning to get to know my now boyfriend (HB for "handsome boy"), and I was reflecting, a lot, on what I had learned since my last relationship, and from my extended time…Read more Dating.

Little Thoughts: Generational Differences

My boyfriend and I had an experience over the weekend, that I think is worth sharing. It left us shaking our heads a bit, and thinking heavily about some of the people involved.

C. a few days ago, and it was an incredible experience.  My spirit was re-connected with God,…Read more Thoughts of God.

(I could tell you horror stories.) Procrastination creates stress. If you don't work on projects until right before they are do, only…Read more What I’m Learning (College Edition)
