In my summer bucket list this year, I mentioned I was going on a mission trip. The trip was last week and I am definitely trying to make myself process things, so here's a post about it. In the months leading up to Mexico, we had a lot of meetings. Informational meetings, brainstorming meetings, bake-sale… Continue reading Stories from my mission trip to Mexico (vol. I)
One of the last assignments I have for this school year in history/English is a personal narrative. The prompt is the question, what was a time you felt like an outsider? This is what I wrote. Theoretically speaking, the line between life as an only child and life with siblings should be dark, thick, and… Continue reading An essay I wrote for school

The existence of these special yogurt creations was first brought to my attention by Sarah Beth's comment on my April post, and I was… Continue reading Life, lately (yogurt & the peg game & books in multiple forms)
