The San Jacinto Monument is basically the Washington Monument of Texas. When I first heard about it, I laughed because I thought, “How petty is Texas that they need their own giant Washington Monument, but a Texas version?” You always hear that everything is bigger in Texas, and it’s totally true… and, Texans have the personality to match. They’re very strong in their convictions and … Continue reading A Hidden Gem: The San Jacinto Monument in La Porte, Texas
I went to my first painting class at Painting with a Twist! I’d never been to Painting with a Twist before, but there’s a local studio near where I live so I decided to go with a friend. It was so much fun and really relaxing – so much more relaxing than I was expecting. I used to love painting and my mom put me … Continue reading I Took a Painting Class and Learned a Lesson in Self-Acceptance
Hi everyone! I hope that you’re having a wonderful holiday season. At the end of every year, I like to pause and look back at everything that’s happened in my life this year.

It started … Continue reading I Watched the Broadway Musical, Dear Evan Hansen!
Galaxy Lights at Space Center Houston was exactly what you would expect: space crossed with Christmas, and it was absolutely amazing. Space Center Houston (SCH) is the visitor center for NASA’s Johnson Space Center, located in Clear Lake, Texas (south of Houston). This year was either the first or second year that SCH hosted a Christmas festival of lights (I’m pretty sure that this was … Continue reading Galaxy Lights at Space Center Houston in Houston, Texas
I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! While my Thanksgiving was very calm at home with my kitty (which is very unlike my normal Thanksgivings at home with my family), I think that it was a good time to reflect on life. Despite all of the controversy behind the holiday and it’s origins, I think that it’s good to take some time to think about … Continue reading What I’m Thankful For
I saw CATS, the Broadway musical! If you’re not familiar with the Broadway show, you might have seen the trailer to the live action movie remake of the musical, which will be released at Christmas. I am so excited for the movie to come out and wanted to see the Broadway musical before it comes out. I grew up listening to the music with my mom, … Continue reading I Saw CATS, the Broadway Musical!
HATERS BACK OFF! I fulfilled a teenage dream of going to a Miranda Sings / Colleen Ballinger Show. If you don’t know who Miranda Sings is, she is a YouTube character played by Colleen Ballinger with over 10 million followers. Colleen created her many years ago and started a YouTube channel about Miranda and her story. From that channel, Colleen has been able to produce … Continue reading I Saw the “Miranda Sings: Who Wants My Kid?” Show
