This is 24

This time last year, I was a hot mess. I had no idea what the heck I was doing, I couldn’t seem to figure out what exactly I wanted, and I felt incredibly alone in the world. But 23 proved me wrong….or rather, I overcame it….regardless of where the action lies, I’ve somehow managed to settle […]

7 Non-cornball (and v late) New Years Resolutions that are actually plausible: 2017 Edition

I brought up two of these in conversation yesterday and realized I never actually published this list. Better late than never I suppose?? 1) Write a book. Okay, this is ambitious, but if Rory Gilmore can do it, so can I. Plus I might have some collaborators…stay tuned. 2) Be on time. My tardiness has become […]

So long, 2016!

2016 has been a historic year for its many ups and downs….mostly identified for the downs, unfortunately…..For me though, 2016 has been a year of great growth, starting off very rocky (adulthood is hard, y’all) and ending in a place of happiness and aspiration for the coming months. As is my annual end-of-year tradition, here’s […]

Elementary School Hopes

I attended Condit Elementary School from 1998-2004. My sisters attended from 2002-2008. At the start of each school year, my mother would sign up to volunteer wherever help was needed — from reading aloud in our classrooms, to making quilts for fundraisers, to her most noteworthy job, running the AR Store (AR points are awarded […]

Wendy bird

Earlier this week, I turned 23 years old. Whaaaaaaat? It seems like only yesterday I was a fresh-faced hooligan giddily flashing my ID. Alas, those days are gone….according to Blink-182, nobody likes you when you’re 23. I could psychoanalyze the heck out of why I was filled with dread before my past two birthdays, but instead I’m going […]

Let Comrade Answer “Here”

April 21, 2016 marked my first Muster as a Former Student, and while the experience was definitely different than the previous four years in Aggieland, it was no less profound. For Aggies, Muster is the most tangible experience of the Aggie Spirit. It’s a time to honor our fellow classmates and loved ones who have recently passed away, […]
