joys

I've been feeling lucky lately. Why, you ask? Luck feels like getting behind the wheel of a car, finally. Luck feels like walking backstage on a professional NBC studio and gaining experience I never thought I would. Luck feels like winning tickets to the VMA's, which one of my most favorite comedians is hosting. I... Continue Reading →

I can't help but think about what people see me as now that I have epilepsy. It's something that crosses my mind all the time. Before that, I considered myself a "regular person". I led a regular life, doing regular things, not even imaging what was coming for me. And then it did. It was... Continue Reading →

The concept of getting back behind the wheel has felt like freedom. For real. It feels like a weight have been lifted off my shoulders - a weight I was very hyper-aware of. It's liberating. But there's also a part of me that doesn't want to. A small part. I'm so scared. I've really been... Continue Reading →

Do you ever have a time when everything is just going really well? In the past few weeks, I got my driving privileges back and I got my dream internship.

I recently found out that he had passed away from epilepsy. It wasn't public knowledge that he had been diagnosed before - which is understandable, given... Continue Reading →

Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to write, and people used to tell me that I should write a blog. I used to journal, and it kind of helped, but none of it was ever really consistent. When I was diagnosed, I needed an outlet, and I knew I had to find a... Continue Reading →

tv

I don't think I can pinpoint when it was that I really started to love television. It's kind of just something that's a constant in my life now. I've found myself so wrapped up in all different characters and storylines that amaze me. They really mean it when they call it binge-watching. Guilty as charged.... Continue Reading →

It's kind of crazy that my 22nd birthday is coming up. I've been reflecting on what 21 has been, and how it's gone by so quickly.  Many of the things in my life in the past year have been constants, and many have changed, but I think the biggest change has been in me. I... Continue Reading →
