a few announcements (and a confession)

Hello, my loves! It's been a while, hasn't it? Over a month, in fact. I've read that in order to be a successful blogger, you should post on a regular basis. Welp.

Change the World, One Step at a Time

For every tragedy or major political event, I spend hours reading the news. Headlines and Twitter threads become my bedtime story; my heart breaks for people I will never meet, and they become my prayer. And so often, that's where it ends.
