Hallmark Won't Make a Movie About This One: Words of hope for hard Holidays



            I don't know about you, but this Thanksgiving was not what I expected. 

How to Change the World by Scrubbing the Toilet

               I have lived a life in the past few years that has felt pulled in many different directions and has left me feeling like I'm constantly running behind.  I feel less like a shiny dime and more like a raggedy teddy bear that has been dropped in a mud puddle and is missing an eye.  I have a heart that wants to help people and I also have a huge list of things that just need to get done. 

When Superheroes Fight

            My deep and fiercely nerdy love of much of sci-fi is thanks to my Dad. 

Creeping people out, or as I like to call it, making friends.

            When I was in my last two years at George Fox University I made zero friends at school.  I had decided to live off campus which at Fox meant you could get out of participating in many things that would help me make said friends and for some reason I thought that was a good thing and signed up!  Yay!

How peeing on metal changed my life.

I was sitting in a classroom full of metal artists as I listened to a man with a respectable beard happily talk in detail about how he peed on his metalwork. It was a part of re-creating an ancient technique for a grant he had received.  A really big grant.  He got to go to Scotland or something to pee on said metal.     

            This falls into the category of life altering moments for me.
