A Letter to Little Me

Dear Avery, I am writing this letter to you now because there are some things that I know to be true now that I wish I knew when I was younger. I have grown so much. I have experienced and felt the world with my own heart and soul and felt the vibrations of the... Continue Reading →

Connection. (written for friends 4 friends)

From the day we are born until the day we die, the power of human connection is a force stronger than anything. As we grow up, I think a lot of us forget that it is 100% okay to need that as well. Babies cry because they need to be touched, loved, nurtured and attended... Continue Reading →

I don't know the right thing to say, but I also do not believe there is a right thing to say. I just don't know. So I am going to write out my feelings, to help me process and understand, and to make myself stop absorbing all of the news because it only exacerbates peoples'... Continue Reading →

Accepting Life’s Fragility 

I have really, truly, grown to realize that the cure to crippling anxiety is to accept the nature of the now: to realize that each moment, no matter how important or insignificant, how beautiful or painful, is fleeting.

September 10th.

I'm sitting in the library on a Sunday, procrastinating homework and reflecting. It's a part of my end-of-weekend routine.

Avery’s Brain: Episode 2 

Last night I was wide awake. It wasn't that I was anxious, or nervous, or sad, I was just the opposite. I came to a realization that I have really grown up. Do I still act like a weirdo and have moments of immaturity? Absolutely. I'm still in college after all... ( not that being... Continue Reading →

Avery’s Brain: Episode 1 

No matter how extroverted I am when I go out, or what type of mood I am in, I thoroughly enjoy my alone time to recharge: to be alone with myself and my thoughts. When I am alone, I do a lot of thinking, deep thinking. The only difference between myself and anyone else with... Continue Reading →
