May the Fourth Be With You

If  you know me in person, then you already know that there is no such thing as too much Star Wars, in my opinion. I’ve read almost all of the books in the new canon, I’ve watched all the movies dozens of times, and I even took up running because of Star Wars.

April 2018: What I’ve Been Up To

C8A5241F-979A-430A-A3E4-D95D66764D46

When I started drafting this post on April 11th, I wrote an intro explaining that my April wasn’t very exciting; it had been uneventful so far, and I expected that trend to continue throughout the rest of the month. I’m happy to say that I was wrong!

I was just passing through Alabama and had only an afternoon to capture Ricky’s senior pictures. Despite various elements working against us, we put our best foot forward and got to work.

A Ray of Sunshine in Cloudy Cincinnati

It’s pretty well established that I’m not a fan of cold climates. However, two sure things that can make me suck it up and endure the shivering are the city of Cincinnati and following my darling sister around with a camera. I had recently taken her photos on Anna Maria Island, and this would be the second time I’d have the pleasure of capturing her during our sister shenanigans.

Favorite Florida Vegan Food of 2017

For people with eating limitations, vacation can be a mixed bag. However, it’s starting to get easier and easier to find vegan food throughout the world, and Florida is a great example of a vacation destination that is bursting with plant-based options!

I’m hoping that this post can inspire some of Florida’s vegan visitors (and residents) as well as make omnivores aware of how delicious vegan food in the Sunshine State can be, in hopes that they will consider reducing their meat consumption to help the environment.

After 48 hours in Hong Kong, I was starting to worry that my whole time in Hong Kong was going to be a bust.

A Morning of Beach Yoga

My absolute favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing visible progress in my students. It is so rewarding to be able to compare a student’s current piece of work with a past piece of work and see how much they have improved.

How You Can Help the Environment (without going zero waste)

41424028232_2f928686e5_k

Earlier this week, I wrote about how I’ve been working to create as little waste as possible. As Earth Day approaches, I’m hoping this is something that others are thinking about, too. I know I mentioned many drastic things in my previous post, but not everybody is perfectly situated to make the lifestyle changes that I made.

Many people don’t have the time or money or energy to transition into a completely new lifestyle this way. However, I would like to request that you consider trying to make some of these smaller changes.

My Journey of Becoming Zero Waste (so far)

When I was about 10 years old, my middle school started a recycling program for paper. Although I think many of my peers didn’t think much of it, I took the concept to heart, and I started smuggling all of my household’s paper trash to school so that I could dispose of it in the classroom recycling bin.
