When Life Give You Lemons…Make it viral

When Life Give You Lemons…Make it viral

Sorry about the click-bait title. There truly is no code, recipe, step by step path to viral content being put on blast. But what I wanted to share here was a idea of turning something that you’re given into a social media push. With the […]

Time Doesn’t Matter

Time Doesn’t Matter

I truly wish social media algorithms weren’t a thing. Can I just start by saying that? (ugh.) Before Instagram/Facebook decided to radically change their internal algorithm to “provide you with a more customized experience” garbage, there once was a day where content flowed in freely […]

Making an Impact

Making an Impact

“Don’t use social media to impress people; use it to impact people.”- Dave Willis Social media gets a bad rap. I get why. In my day-to-day duties,  I deal with complaints, stalker-like behavior, spamming, “tattling”, and people who are just having a bad day. People […]

A Quiet Morning

A Quiet Morning

Can you hear that? No? Neither can I. The whispers of life outside my window tease me to what I can be missing out on. The clacks of flip flops on the pavement tell stories of running late for church and rushed walking to the coffee shop.

The silence is almost haunting, but yet so beautifully peaceful. The only clicks and clacks from my little apartment are the sounds of my coffee pot, turning on and reheating the freshly aromatic drink that greets my lips every morning.

I sit here in utter peace about life, not in a rush to get from A to B. Not distracted by the glaring messages on my phone or by the hum of a television (we actually don’t have one of those). But instead, I am immersed by the words of a fellow writer, filling up the pages with black ink and experiences. I drink sips of my coffee whilst balancing it on my knee trying not to spill as I highlight the words that speak to me most out of the book. I look at the clock with time to spare before I need to push the start button on my day.

What Makes Places Special?

What Makes Places Special?

When traveling abroad I look at the beauty. I look at the ancient buildings. I look at the stories that echo off the walls of the ancient structures. Sitting watching people pass by I realized. It’s not the location. It’s not the buildings. It’s not […]
