The faith in fate, do we fight it, make it, ride it?

I've talked in many of my posts about my, at times, envy, for those who've followed one specific path in life and find themselves dedicated to one passion.  I sometimes feel existentially flighty with my love for so many things and curiosity in what seems to be conflicting passions and interests.  My wavering tendencies sometimes… Continue reading The faith in fate, do we fight it, make it, ride it?

Happy Sunday my loves!  Can you believe we're almost in the second month of 2016?!  It's crazy!  My friend Randi tagged me in this survey so I thought I'd play along while I'm watching tonight's episode of KUWTK. Four names that people call me other than my real name: Jess Jessabelle (Nickname from my stepdad) Jessaduck (Name… Continue reading 4

Six Things I Vow to do in 2016

First, let me apologize for my brief blogging hiatus.  As it turns out, completing the final semester of nursing school, working, attempting to maintain a social life, blogging, and keeping my sanity, don't mix well together. As I spent one of the last few weeks of the year in one of my favorite places, and… Continue reading Six Things I Vow to do in 2016
