A very good friend of mine once gave me a piece of advice. I didn’t understand what she meant at the time but now that I’ve experienced all that she’d probably gone through, I know exactly what she meant. I can’t sleep feeling this bitterness hanging over my head and it stirs anger deep within my bones just feeling this way. I should’ve listened to you. Thank you, Bo.
It’s the last week of school before finals and I managed to get myself sick. After an off, tiring day at school, you were able to help me lift my spirits. Thank you for our traditional weekly dinners and for taking care of me today. It’s always a wonderful Wednesday when I’m with you.

As excited as I was for Thanksgiving, I’m sure I was just 90% anxious about it. I didn’t know exactly what I’d end up doing but I knew exactly where I’d end up. I’m thankful for the quality time I got to spend with family members I’d been desperately wanting to see. And I’m especially thankful for all the love and laughs I shared these past 24+ hours. To good friends and family, Happy Thanks.
I’ve always been on a self-search for what I think derives my happiness. The short list I’ve compiled consists of standing outside on a cold night, small acts of kindness, and sippin’ on hot chocolate. At the end of the day I can’t rely on too many people for happiness; perhaps just my out of control family. I have to make myself happy and no one can do anything to expedite that process. I’ve learned that repeatedly and through the hardest of ways.

I’ve been looking for a reason to document my everyday shenanigans and some place empty to record them. Here’s to photos, lessons, travels, memories, and one direction.
Thank you Albeen for Midnight Memories.
