Reflections on 2019

  My iPhone can tell me a lot about 2019. I don’t see pictures on the camera roll from New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day because our NYE plans were changed when our friends got sick. I didn’t stay up to see the ball drop to begin 2019, but I went with the flow [...]

Boxing, One Year Later

Boxing, One Year Later

I recently marked my one year anniversary of taking boxing classes. I can’t believe I’ve been taking these incredible classes for a year.

Thank you for following my journey this year!

So.....this school year is done!  It's been an amazing year filled with a lot of self-discovery and new knowledge.  I've learned so much about myself and this, to me, is as important as the academics.  I couldn't have done it without the support of my family and friends. Last night, I was getting giddy about [...]
