I am not the best at New Year’s Resolutions. Coming up with them and sticking to them is a recipe for an anxiety attack, most of the time. For me, anyway. For you, maybe it works. This year, I mentioned to a couple of my friends that I wanted to hear what their resolutions were,Continue reading “No time like the present”
2021. It’s good to see you. It’s also good to see this blog, which I apparently haven’t updated in almost three years. So consider this a new start in all forms. We’re two days in to a new year and approaching some things that way has already helped me considerably. There’s not a lot toContinue reading “Hello from the other side”

I’ve been spoiled by the original Broadway cast recording. 4. Wonder if they’ll have a female Burr or Hamilton ever…Continue reading “In the Room Where It Happened OR 59 thoughts I had while seeing Hamilton on stage in Chicago”
I’ve never been one to make a big deal out of New Year’s Eve. Sure, my friends and I have had some awesome parties for it and there was that one time on Bardstown Road, but really, it’s just another day/night for me. I do try to think of a resolution of some sort –Continue reading “New year, who dis”
Note from Laura: This post was not written by me. It was written by a very close friend of mine, who is going through a hard time. In the interest of supporting her and supporting lessening the stigma surrounding talking about mental health, I’m sharing it here, with her permission, and actually at her request.Continue reading “Reaching the Light”
Y’all. Seven-year-old me was pretty great to have in a crisis.
