that is the purpose


 To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

this is how we do impossible things





On the Bright Side of 2020...


 I feel a little guilty saying it... but 2020 was actually a pretty great year for me!

•I started the year by getting my own place just a walk away from the mountains
•And wow did I spend time in the mountains. This was the year of hikes by far
•My business boomed to the point I had to hire help or scale back. I chose to scale back because...
•I decided to go back to school (!) I got my BLS and CNA certifications over the summer and ultimately decided on the Physician Assistant route (!!) Grad School here I come (eventually, ha) I started on some sciencey pre-reqs at Weber State and not only did I pass Chemistry, I earned a solid A (!!!) I think o-chem is kinda fun
•I swam. A lot. This is the one thing that truly keeps me in a good routine and feeling grounded
•Reunited with some old friends I hadn’t seen in ages
•Brought some pretty great new people into my life
•Successfully avoided covid! Knock on wood...
•Got cuddles and laughs from my pup on a daily basis
•And of course we can’t forget that the Dodgers won the World Series for the first time since the year I was born
Happy New Year!
