    I was rear-ended the other day in Atlanta. It could have been worse, but I did get rear-ended and my car needs some fixin' up. I was alone, and did not get all the information I needed because I went into psychological shock. So this is a guide in case I am ever involved in another accident in the future - knock on wood.

    Juliet’s February 2019 in Photos | Challenge #006

    My February 2019 challenge was to walk more, at least 10-20 minutes every day. I used to walk at least 3 miles every day back in college, but now with a car and on this road trip, I get lazy or too tired to stretch my legs. I walked the most this month out of all the other months on my road trip, and I took photos to share!

    2018 in Review | Annie

    I can’t believe the year is almost over in TWO DAYS. 2018 was definitely better than 2017. I spent a lot of time in 2017 doubting myself, caring too much about what others thought of me, and not enough time taking care of myself. In 2018 I put myself out there and I am slowly starting to find myself again.

    Sharing My Biggest Secret | Part 1

    Last week I had my third reconstructive ear surgery and implanted part of a bone conduction hearing aid behind my left ear. Most of you who know me probably don’t know this about me: I was born with unilateral microtia and aural atresia. I have never openly shared this to the public, especially to the Internet, until now. With this huge recent change in my life and being the most comfortable in my own skin that I have ever been, I’m ready to share this part of me that I’ve kept to myself.
