musings, photos, quotes, and & recipes of a grad student just trying to figure out this crazy thing we call life. I am a believer that the glass is half full and that we can find beauty in most everything. I am a vegetarian and a Doctoral student in sociology. But most of all, I am inquisitive and I love people.
Life is staggering. Life is a big deal, we’re just used to it. We are like spoiled children no longer impressed with the gifts we are given - it’s just another sunset, just another rainstorm, just another mountain, just another child being born, just another funeral. Sometimes I suddenly realize that I am alive & human. I wonder why nobody else realizes what a crazy experience we’re having.
