    The Little Things “Mom what’s a pillow fort?” I looked at my Mom sitting on the couch next to me,”Allison you don’t know what a pillow fort is?” She looked at me smiling and said,”We’re gonna build one ok? Lemme me move the couches…” I remember at that moment being so excited, just thinking “Wow! I’m going to have my own fort!” I ran around the house helping my mom get all the blankets and pillows needed for my little sanctuary. When it was all said and done it looked a lot worse than I had pictured in my head. It was completed with chairs for support, both of our couches, and a blanket roof rapidly sinking in. It was still amazing to my little 5 year old self. I crawled in and sat down on a heap of pillows that were slowly being covered…

    “Markers, Paw-Prints, Hair Dye, and Other Mistakes” I love trying new things. I’m bold. I love the rush of adrenaline you get when taking risks. I love the unknown. I’ve had this mindset for as long as I can remember; I’ve always believed that living a life without being audacious isn’t a life worth having. You need to be impulsive. Try new things without worrying about the outcome, because if you do, you won’t enjoy the little things in life nearly as much. But things can go wrong, and…

    Emily Little wrote an article titled “Too Dependent on Technology?” and she talks of how things are different in the present state compared to twenty years ago. “Twenty years ago, the world had no Facebook, no Google and no YouTube.

While this may be an obvious statement, it is a statement people often look over and not think about or even realize. That is how technology is overlooked and taken advantage of,…

    Do you ever get the feeling that God has a sense of humour? Most of the time, I find it in life’s irony. The little things popping you are hopelessly trying to avoid, and seemingly insignificant people doing extraordinary, earth-shattering things. Initially I’ll be frustrated and angry with God (imagine inner tantrums and kicking and screaming), but after some time, especially when it is reoccurring, I finally get the point; the point that I have absolutely no control over this life, and that…

    never end when we think they have. There’s a misconception that moments stop, but that’s impossible. Right now is connected to ten years ago, but it’s also attached to a million futures, no definitive length only indefinite time. So in every moment we begin again, continuing to mold our stories. Just another once upon a time. Learning is so much more than school to me. The typical system of education has little value in my eyes. We grow from reading between the lines and infusing passion into…
