For me, croquet defines summer. I played almost every summer of my childhood almost every day. My friends and I would have competitions and keep track of who won the most games every summer. I was a croquet master. However, I haven’t had the chance to play for about 5 years. I played again this past weekend with some friends and my love came back. I taught friends and that’s when I realized there are so many ways to play croquet. If you look online, there are a ton of different rules so I wanted to lay out the way that I learned and theRead More →

I love adventure. I try to incorporate it into my everyday life, whether it be hang gliding or a simple trip to the grocery store and make it an adventure. My boyfriend Cory and I were on a separate adventure one day when we stumbled upon this awesome church – abandoned with no windows and doors.

I studied film production in college. Actually, it was film production and criminal justice (for documentary purposes), but for now I’m going to focus on the film part. While I’ve seen a lot of movies, many of them aren’t the “popular” movies that everybody loves (I haven’t seen The Godfather, but I have seen a film called Gummo. Ever heard of it? Probably not.). I’ve compiled a list of 12 movies that I love in no particular order – except for the first two. The first two are my all time favorite movies. And the movies are: 1.
