“To hold your world together”

Since I moved away from home about 6 years ago, I've found that I rarely miss my family. We stay well connected through social media and phone calls, and I am usually busy enough that I don't miss them between those interactions. But when I'm sick, or having a hard day, that's when I miss... Continue Reading →

Pink Cotton Candy

If you've spent any time in Kathmandu, you probably have seen boys carrying around a pole, with bags of florescent pink cotton candy hanging off of them, approaching both locals and foreigners trying to sell their product.

I... Continue Reading →

And Some Days You’re Living

This morning I was woken up by buses honking and exceptionally loud music playing nearby. I opened my eyes, and pushed a button on my phone. It was 5:54. I rolled over, sighed, and got out of bed, knowing the noise wouldn't subside anytime soon. Or at all, until about 8pm tonight. And for a... Continue Reading →

And that changed my life

A few weeks back, I got lost in the black hole of the internet and came across a thread. Someone was asking people to name one thing that someone said to you that changed your life. It’s a big question. Lots of people responded with proposals or finding out they were having a child. If I... Continue Reading →
