Ask me anything

It may seem like we live in a pretty messed up world, but in day to day life, there are these small miracles, these small encounters that are orchestrated just for us to see how perfect our lives could be in one Name. I simply hope to capture them.

Ordinary Human

There’s the saying “When Life gives you Lemons… make Lemonade”. But seriously? I prefer the version ” When Life gives you lemons… make chocolate milk”.

This summer has taught me a lot about what that means. Our lives aren’t simply meant to always just make the best of what we have, or to merely survive. Our lives are to be lived and better yet, to reinvented, reimagined and rearranged constantly.…

Nicolas Flamel

It’s Sunday again and that means it’s time to wrap up another week and leave you guys with this weeks blog posts, but before we get into the usual grind of Sunday I want to leave you guys with a question:

What would you do if you could live forever?

I personally (yes I know this sounds lame) would never want to live forever. I mean if the world heads into the dystopian way we write about it in…

Quidditch

hogwarts_stadium

Who wouldn’t give their left arm to play real quidditch just once? I know I would… but then I wouldn’t have a left arm and with a fear of being amputated one day this may not be a clever idea. But i love the idea of being able to play an exhilarating game on broom sticks high above the ground. Though I’m not very coordinated, I would probably be a chaser.

A chaser seems fitting for someone who…

The Midnight Duel

Today Officially starts my mini vacation… and vacations mean one thing: lots of reading and many adventures (so excuse this for being short and sweet). And this week my favorites have not failed to bring excitement back to the works I love so much.

J.K Rowling released an article by the infamous Rita Skeeter on Pottermore this week and the world has been a buzz since. Rowling doesn’t let us down…

The Sorting Hat

A few times in life you are lucky to come by a new friendship without ever expecting it to happen. Last fall I got the privilege of hanging out with some amazing girls. After dinner and a night in one of the Las Vegas Strip casinos I made a group of friends out of people I probably would have never met otherwise.

Aren't we beautiful??

Aren’t we beautiful??

There was a wedding and reception… a brief after party and…

Cecilia and The Satellite

Cecilia and The Satellite

I haven’t written on here in a while for many reasons:

-Life has drastically changed in the past month

-There have been many adventures

-I’ve made some friends and I’ve lost some too

-I’ve decided to change paths in life

Andrew McMahon released a new song (“Cecilia and the Satellite”), a recap of his life for his newborn daughter (who isn’t really a newborn anymore and when he was writing she…

The Mirror of Erised

The Mirror of Erised

Well, today is travel day, we are headed to Salt Lake City (Chelsea and I) to  see one of our favorite musicians do his thing.

This week we started our book club with the official first meeting. We read Paper Towns by John Green for our first meeting and the conversation around the book was great. (and of course by the end of it we ended up talking about Harry Potter, which was amazing of course).

Halloween —- (really any holiday)

Halloween — (really any holiday)

Found this inspiration on Pinterest 

The chapter title of this blog (if you haven’t been following along in tribute to HP month we are using the chapter titles from book 1) just happens to be this October day of frivolity and masks. While I’d love to have some metaphorical blog on masks and costumes, I do believe it’s kind of a played out rant on being your true self.

The Potions Master

Okay so this is a very fitting title to a blog about John Green… I mean it couldn’t have fallen on a better day.

So I’ve now read three of Mr. Green’s books since January including Paper Towns (Which my book club is discussing this week) and of course The Fault in Our Stars (because I had to read it before the movie came out).  This past weekend I finished Looking for Alaska.

It really was a…
