What Christmas Means to Me

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the day with loved ones. Families, friends near and far, and all those you hold dear. I can’t quite pinpoint why I love Christmas so much.

What the word Catholic means to me

Hi everybody! It’s been almost three weeks since I last posted. But I hope everyone’s doing well 🙂 I have one rule for myself when I write, and that is, to only write when I am inspired to, or when I have something on my mind that I feel I should share.

I think I’m actually pretty mentally tough most of the time. But at times where the stupidity, narrow-mindedness, and flat outContinue reading “A New Way of Thinking”
