How I have enjoyed writing so regularly! However, now that summer has ended, it is time for the Idealist within me to slow to a walking pace, and for the Realist to find its stride. In order for me to achieve as a full-time student while maintaining a blog that I am proud of, I will require extra spacing between posts. From now on, instead of hearing from me once every Saturday, you may expect a Journal once every second Saturday, with the next arriving on August 27, 2016.

Thank you all, for continuing to support me throughout this experience.


About "To Have a Home in a Memory"

I had the chance to speak with Dan Clark, the primary contributing author of the New York Times best seller, Chicken Soup for the Soul. He was incredibly interested in my love for writing and asked for me to read to him one of my works. On July 23, 2016, I read “To Have a Home in A Memory” to Mr. Clark. He was impressed enough to call it “profound,” and mentioned his favorite points from the writing — mentioning the difference between “to be loved” and “to be needed” — in his speech at the Leadership Breakfast in Wichita Falls, TX, in front of over nine hundred people.
