It's been a good while. I thought I would update people on how life is in Hawaii. I came here to YWAM Ships Kona because I got invited to help out as a volunteer in the Communications department. & I'm convinced the communications department is the best place to work on the base. Everyone in… Continue reading Aloha
I’ll always be singin a song & listening for one. Being open, learning to tune my heart by ear. I’ll keep my eyes on love, watching to see what chord it’s gonna play next. What a beautiful mystery, yet well known journey. Feelin the feels that life is beautiful. I’ll always have this rose-colored view… Continue reading Songs of Love, Hawaii, & Dolphins
That tree has 17 branches and I'll never forget it. I used to stare at it all the time. 6 years ago, I was at a school/program called Youth With A Mission (YWAM (YouthWithoutAnyMoney/YoungWomenAfterMen/Y-not?)). For those who don't know, it's a Christian organization where you go to classes for 3 months and then a mission… Continue reading 17
This past December I was in Rajasthan, India. Whenever I brought up this state to Indians, the first thing they said was always, "Oh, the desert" or they laughed and said to be prepared for the worst. I was blown away by how much I loved Rajasthan and how much I want to go back.These photos… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life (Northern India)
I’ve been procrastinating this blog post. I even thought about just skipping over it because it’s too much to explain.

50 of us piled on to a bus, to get to the first of many trains that would take us to Hamburg. More than 200 all together, the whole school went to Hamburg for a week for mini-outreach. It was my favorite week in Germany so far. Film:
This weekend we went to an abandoned factory, in a town over called Berthelsdorf (I think). One of the photography leaders, Taylor, took us and showed us this building that used to be a light bulb factory. It's only a 15 minute walk from my apartment, so I can go back anytime I want to… Continue reading Abandoned Factory/Color Film
I've been here for almost 3 weeks, and it just about feels like home. It's small like Bayside (home in CA), but more accessible for walking around and exploring. Here are some photos from my walks/time here and some that I used for the first photo assignment.
Yesterday we had a paper written with things that hold us back. When people were ready, they took these papers to the fire and threw it in. Some people threw other things in that were personal hindrances to them, like packs of cigarettes or journals from the past. (I've always wondered if you burned a… Continue reading Bookcase Freefall
On Saturday 4 girls from my building and I went to Dresden! It was so beautiful and fun. Dresden was bombed and there are still some buildings that are black in parts because of the bomb, the rest being restored in 2007, or something like that. Thank you to the best travel buddies ever, I'm… Continue reading Saturday in Dresden
