This is happiness

In case you were wondering who I'm rooting for today!!!!!!! (Not that I've ever had much of a choice)


This is a picture of me that was taken when I took a trip to Kuwait City, Kuwait with my mom in July 2014. My mom has been a flight attendant for 35 years, and of these 35, she chose to spend 7 traveling to Kuwait because she loves it and it's people. Despite the media, the stereotypes, the ongoing war, the incidents that have happened within our country, and despite 9/11-- which impacted her, her coworkers and the nature of her job immensely, she took a chance. She took a chance at loving and appreciating a culture and a people she'd been told to fear. And she took a chance at giving me the same opportunity.
I am not perfect, and I am made up of many experiences and people and interactions and feelings, but I believe that this experience is among one of the most impactful in my life, as it has made me want to be a more accepting, more patient, and more loving person. And when I am not accepting, patient and loving, it's made me want to challenge myself. It's made me want to learn and to listen. So even though I am not perfectly unbiased or perfectly unafraid, it's made me want to doubt fear and try to understand. Because that is all I can do.

I don't think we are born with the ability to understand and empathize with those who are different than us; I believe this is something that is learned.
And sometimes the only way you learn is by taking a chance.

When you blink and all of a sudden it's senior spring so you might as well go see the bats fly at least once but in reality Lake Alice is more captivating so you make Austin pose to capture the moment 🐒

That time I turned 21 in Paris ❀️

LOOK at this happy lady. Forever thankful for a mom who's taught me how important!!!!! It is to see the world, love your life and really honestly LOVE your job.

I know you can't really tell what this is but it's all I've got

I like when we win

Happy New Year ppl

I think today is my favorite day of all the days.
