:: Caution!!! This post was written while ... slightly intoxicated. :: It's funny how your mind expands and welcomes wilder, more daring imaginations when you've been drinking. It's weird how your perspective changes to become much more accommodating, hospitable, and kind when you've been drinking. Alcoholism is horrible, offensive, and destructive, and I'm not condoning … Continue reading Tipsy
It's no secret that I work at American Red Cross and have been fundraising for disasters for three years now, but this week has been the most difficult, challenging and yet, also satisfying week of those three years. I was deployed to East Texas where I grew up, and I've been working every waking moment … Continue reading Texas Tornadoes
Every step I've taken has led me to where I am right now, and it's hard to pick one situation or event that influenced me being here now more than the rest.
