Endings and Beginnings

start - finishToday is the end, well almost nearly the end, of the first semester of my Sophomore year in college.  And, it feels great!  Why?  Because I know every ending is really just a new beginning sad thing is it can often take a whole semester to learn/remember that.

“What Teachers Make” by Taylor Mali


If you haven’t seen this video then you need to.

Often teachers get pushed to the side as if what they do isn’t important but it really is, if it wasn’t for teachers where would we all be, you know?

Why I Write

I write to tell a story…whether it is the story of a child or a too executive I believe that everyone has a story that deserves to be told.

I write because it’s fun…writing for me is just like reading it takes me to new places, introduces me to new people, and if it’s especially daring can give me quite a thrill.

I write because without writing I don’t know where I would be…writing keeps me going when times are hard, it has gotten me out of some of my darkest moments.

I write because it’s what I’m good at…sure I’m good at many things but with writing its different, writing lets me know that I am amazingly talented even when I’m am ignored by others.

And lastly…

I write because I’ve done it forever…I’ve been writing forever, when I was little it was my way of communicating to the adult world my thoughts and feelings and now it is the way I best express myself.

So why should I stop now?

Feel free to post why you write below!

Whimsically Yours,

An Inspiring Quote and a New Challenge


I have this sort of obsession with quotes, I love finding quotes that inspire me and placing them in various places, phone & computer backgrounds, Facebook page etc… For the past couple months I have been especially obsessed with the quotes of Albert Einstein, he was such a brilliant man! But today I happened upon this quote by George Bernard Shaw, author of the play that inspred my favorite movie (My Fair Lady).
