About

“All I knew then was what I wasn’t, and it took me some years to discover what I was. Which was a writer. By which I mean not a ‘good’ writer or a ‘bad’ writer but simply a writer, a person whose most absorbed and passionate hours are spent arranging words on pieces of paper.”
–Joan Didion

What originally began as an exercise in writing has now morphed into a conglomerate of my consistent passions:  running and travel. I began running a decade ago for no other reason than it seemed like it might be fun. I’m still having fun but also taking training a lot more seriously with BQ dreams. My love for travel is both genetic and incurable but also lends itself to touristic perspective even in my own city. Dallas is my favorite city in America and Paris always holds a place in my heart. Everything is nothing without Jesus and nothing plus Jesus is everything.

During college, I spent a semester studying abroad and interning in London, England. I kept this blog updated on an almost daily basis with photos and descriptions of my London life and travels around the UK and the continent.

I spent June 2011 living and studying in Paris, France. I lived with a French family and took two French courses through my university. I was also able to take weekend and day trips to the Loire Valley, Giverny, Mont St. Michel, Chartres and Versailles. I kept this blog updated daily, save for a few days when I didn’t have an internet connection.

I maintained a blog on Simone Weil’s Waiting for God (originally L’Attente de Dieu) as an assignment for my “Biblical Heritage and Contemporary Ethical Issues” honors course in college. The text was my own choice. I simultaneously read the original French alongside the English edition to enrich my understanding. Weil is a very interesting figure to study in relation to Biblical ethics because of her own personal struggles.
