Some Say Depression, It Is a River
*Written in late January*
A few weeks ago, I heard a story about a girl who can ask her deceased father for guidance before she goes to sleep, and without fail he appears in her dreams.Continue reading “Some Say Depression, It Is a River”
You’re a Person, Not a Product
*written in December*
I had a modeling job last week. LAUGH MY A** OFF. Me. Modeling. I can barely find decent pictures of me for this blog, that I post on twice a month. I just don’t like getting my picture taken. I like the idea of having nice photos of myself, but the process of getting them done? Blind panic, I mentally black out, and suddenly it’s over and I’m just sure I’ve messed it up.

Change Never Comes Without Loss
I haven’t posted in four months… that’s maybe the longest I’ve ever been silent since I first started. Doesn’t feel great. But, I understand why.
There’s been a lot of change in the past year. Just as I’d finally begun settling into Nashville, a world without my mom, and a career path I had so much hope for, BAM. The world came to a screeching halt. And then everything changed again. And I don’t like change. I don’t think that’s unique to me, either!Continue reading “Change Never Comes Without Loss”
