Tolerance

I’ve been watching an Unfortunate Series of Events on Netflix lately because I remember loving the book series as a kid. Perhaps being drawn to a series that specifically warns you not to read it because it will be very unhappy should have been a red flag, but oh well. One of [the villain] Count... Continue Reading →

God’s Plan, My Plan

(This concept is also known as predestination, but that word is scary and has too many connotations, so I'm going to ask we start with a blank page.) The last time I was in a relationship, I was old enough to be thinking about marriage and young enough to know it would never work. Despite... Continue Reading →

Confronted

Part 3 I wanted to write this blog post because, despite the fear that many people may skip it, or that it may hurt to write, I know it’s important.   I was most confronted by the things I didn’t see coming. Growing up with an Indonesian mother, I’ve been to her hometown and the... Continue Reading →
