Currently going through yet another existential crisis and productivity always makes me feel better, so here’s a selection of some of the 35mm film I shot in Cartagena in March 2020, before the world ended.

Just another night.
It was cold. It was rainy. It was 10:30pm. I still had 3 more long work days ahead of me. On any other night, I would have been more than content with a shower, a snack, and snuggling into bed with Netflix. But tonight was different. Tonight we had plans. Plans we’d talked about allContinue reading “Just another night.”
A letter for Travis Tucker.
Travis Tucker. A name straight out of a country song. We dated for a brief couple of months about 3 years ago. We met a few weeks after I broke up with my first and only serious boyfriend. I had been the one to end things, so I was excited to be single again andContinue reading “A letter for Travis Tucker.”
Kind of love.
I want that “i can’t wait to see you” | “me either” kind of love. I want the kind of love you never get tired of. I want the kind of love that doesn’t tremble. I want the kind of love that you never question. I want the kind of love that makes everything else aContinue reading “Kind of love.”
Not for lack of trying.
I have been trying so hard. Trying to accept my circumstances. Trying to be grateful. Trying to stay positive. Trying to imagine a new life that excites me. Trying to let go of the life that was ripped away from me. Trying to do the right thing. Trying to stay informed. Trying to amplify theContinue reading “Not for lack of trying.”
The straightforward guide to perfect potatoes.
I’m generally a lover of potatoes, but who isn’t? Baked, mashed, fried, roasted. All delicious, but many methods require a lot of oil or added fats to make them delicious. After a lot of tweaking and perfecting, I’ve figured out a method that always results in potatoes that are hot and fluffy in the middle,Continue reading “The straightforward guide to perfect potatoes.”
According to plan.
At the time of writing this, I’ve just woken up on my first morning back home after 17 days in Colombia. As I went upstairs and made my coffee, looking out at the cold, gray backyard, I felt sorry for myself for the first time. If you’ve kept up with my writing, you’ll know thatContinue reading “According to plan.”
A different kind of new year’s resolution.
I’ve always cringed during “goal setting” exercises at work, and I’ve dreaded the classic interview question “what’s your 5 year plan?” Throughout my 20s, goal setting has made me incredibly anxious, because after college, I didn’t know what my goals were. But it wasn’t always that way. When I was around 10 years old IContinue reading “A different kind of new year’s resolution.”
The second time you leave.
I’m not talking about leaving for a vacation. Or leaving for college. Not leaving for a work trip, or even an extended deployment. Not maternity leave either. All of those things have one thing in common: they eventually come to an end. There is a start and a finish. The kind of leaving I’m talkingContinue reading “The second time you leave.”
Endings & Beginnings
All of my past relationships share one common moment. Not butterflies before the first kiss, or when your stomach drops the first time someone tells you they love you. I’m talking about the moment when I’ve realized that it’s over. Maybe not today, maybe not this week, maybe not even this year. But it’s over,Continue reading “Endings & Beginnings”
