Some Updates on Me

Visions I’ve been spending a lot of time in my head lately, hyper-focused on next moves in every aspect of my life. Improving everything, being stronger, more fit, making more money, and growing into a better person for my loved ones. And of course for myself.

Running into 2017

2016 is gone, and I get to reflect back on some wonderful moments and accomplishments. My heart has grown over the year, and so has my assertiveness. It could always use work, but I think my overall growth deserves a shout-out. It was a year of loss, and one that brought out the worst in […]

Bailey-One Year Later

On New Year’s Eve of 2014, I was informed that someone abandoned a dog outside of my grandma’s apartment building. Apparently, he was thrown out of a car, and he refused to move from the spot where he was left. Armed with bacon, my uncle Garry and I ventured outside to check out this dog […]
