To make this entry slightly more eye-catching, I almost named it "Extraordinarily spoiled by my Daddy," because you know, God is referred to as The Father, but that's beside the point and I am nearly sure you are thankful I did not title it that. My guess is God is too. If you're confused about … Continue reading Extraordinarily spoiled by Jesus.

Four years. Four years filled with little sleep, fluctuating body weight due to emotional eating, twelve-hour days spent in the Allen Library, weekends spent studying instead of attending movie nights, times of prayer filled with inescapable tears, times of prayer filled with debatably justified anger, and times of prayer filled with unending joy.

Now, when I say crying, I don't want you to think about me in the fetal position, curled up in the bathroom corner with tears streaming and the inability to catch my breath. That's everything it wasn't. My eyes … Continue reading I Cried in Biology Class…

College doesn't … Continue reading What College Fails to Tell the Christian
On June 5th, 2019 at 9:43 in the morning, I was accepted into UW's Mechanical Engineering Department. I'm on the journey to becoming what I've wanted to be since high school, a mechanical engineer!
