My Pinning Addiction

I know I've been absent for quite some time with a post (book reviews excluded). I promise I'm working on a few new posts and I hope to get some up here soon. With that being said; if you have any ideas for posts or want to know anything in particular, let me know in... Continue Reading →

My 100th Post

When I started this blog to share posts about my summer hikes back in 2017 I never thought I'd become an actual blogger. After I finished school I decided to really focus on my writing and expanding my blog presence. And I've loved every post I've written so far. Blogging has given me an escape... Continue Reading →

My Online Watchlist

The age of cable television is dying and streaming services are taking over. I, like many others, don't watch cable television. I subscribe to popular streaming services instead: Netflix, Hulu, HBO and Amazon Prime. A lot of people joke that they don't pay for their Netflix and that they just mooch off of someone else's...

A Quick Trip to Oregon

A week ago I returned from a short trip back to Oregon to see my college best friend who lives in Portland and to see another best friend graduate. It was the perfect length of time and I got to explore the Portland area and return to my alma mater. It has been a year... Continue Reading →

My Summer To-Dos

Summer is finally here and I want to do so many things. And I'm sure many of you have a long list as well. There's still a bit of snow on the peaks in the Rocky Mountains here in Colorado but it's beginning to get warmer and there's plenty of activities to be done this... Continue Reading →

My Workspace

Since I've been at my (not-so-new) new job now for six months I thought I'd share how I've made my desk my own. I never thought that I'd be the type of person to sit at a desk all day for work, but I am. I will hopefully have an opportunity in the future to... Continue Reading →

Five Days on the Green

It has been almost two weeks since I returned from Junior River Trip and as I promised in my post before I left, I'll share a bit about my recent trip down the Green River in Utah. In short, it was a wonderful trip that I will certainly remember for years to come. As I... Continue Reading →

Why I Jumped on the Game of Thrones Bandwagon

**This post contains spoilers from the final season of Game of Thrones.** With the series finale of the HBO show Game of Thrones, I thought I'd share why I decided to jump on the ever-so-popular bandwagon. I've always been a fan of fantasy, especially when you add in an original storyline and interesting characters that you... Continue Reading →


A year ago I wrote about the Art of Giving and gave insight into the University of Oregon's annual Giving Day #DucksGive. This year, instead of sitting behind a computer and calling for donations, I was on the other end receiving the call. Giving back to the university that I spent tens of thousands of dollars...

It’s Time to Get Lost on the River

Five years ago I was fortunate enough to spend six days on the Green River in Utah with fellow juniors as a school trip. That trip made my high school experience. The trip, which has been around since the 70s brings a whole different kind of high school adventure to Middle Park High School juniors.... Continue Reading →
