By: Kaitlyn and Sarah If youâre anything like us, you make Pro/Con lists for every big event/decision in your life. Letâs face it, these lists never really help you decide something (you usually ha…

“We grew up with books. Straight out of the womb, we surrounded ourselves with books from the moment that we could hold them. And have never put them down since. Even today if someone were to walk into one of our homes, there’s a good chance that books would be everywhere.” Click the link to read the rest! :)
Hello lovely people! I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m going to again.
I have started a blog with my dear friend Sarah full of our writing and thoughts about life, culture, news, entertainment, etc. It’s coming along quite nicely and I’m rather proud/excited about it. SO CHECK IT OUT!!!
What are you doing after you graduate?”
What a seemingly deadly question.
Is it just me, or do very few of us know exactly where we want to be five years from now? For the confused and the frightened, the future is a gnarly place.
Who am I? What am I doing with my life? Should I switch my major to something totally different? Is everyone else actually happier than me, or are they just better at pretending? What would make me happy? Chances are these reoccurring questions never find an answer.

Check out stuff we already have up including our thoughts on boy bands, summer camp, and Galentine’s Day!

What it means to be a woman
Today one of the learners I tutor told me, “A girl doesn’t become a woman until she has children.”
It was hard to sit there and not say anything. Here’s what I wanted to say:
“Are you saying that a woman isn’t mature until she bears children? Are you saying that a girl doesn’t become a woman until she fulfills her ‘life purpose’? Is that what you’re saying, sir? If that’s the case, will you please tell me, when does a boy become a man, then? Surely not when he bears children.
I am sick of this idea that a woman’s main life experience should be having children, that that’s the only way they grow and live life. I may be in my 20s and I may not have children, but I have experienced a damn amount of life and have matured due to many factors that DO NOT include having children. I don’t need to have your acceptance or anyone’s children to know that I am a woman and i have been since the day I was born.”
A Look Back at 2012
So many amazing things happened this year:
Good food. Amazing Friends. Seattle. Loss. A new puppy. 21. Greece. Camp. Journalism. Writing. Teaching. Students. Inspiration. Love.
hope in people
I know a lot of you are anxious about the election and winning the election. And I will admit, there is a candidate that I am rooting for and I will be upset if he does not win. However, I’m not going to lose all hope if does not.
I have hope in people. And because of this hope, I believe that no matter who wins this presidency, we will be ok. I believe that people are inherently good and all of us just want what’s best for those around us. And luckily, we have the power of voice in this government. As long as all of us (most importantly our president) keep an open mind and heart, respect each others opinions, listen to what those are saying around us, and have the courage to admit that what we originally believed might be wrong, we will be fine.
