Momentary Update

I’ve been absent for a few days, but that’s because I’ve been working on piano hymns for worship services this week. I usually write my blogs in the mornings, but the services are in the morning so it’s mixing my routine up a bit. Today there isn’t a service which is why I’m writing today. […]

Clean Eating

A healthy diet is super important to me. I’m of the opinion that what you eat affects your thinking, your emotional well-being, and energy levels. I’ve been vegetarian for about 3 years already and haven’t had a craving for meat since, and I feel great and haven’t had a stomach bug in years. I haven’t […]

A blog about journaling… isn’t that surprising? Jokes aside, I haven’t been a big journaler until recently. A small journal helped get me through the very difficult and stressful months before graduation. Journaling my goals focused my mind on what I really wanted in life, and how to get there. I don’t think I’d be […]

Elisa, amateur church pianist.

When I created this blog I wanted to record some mini life “milestones” such as “first time I played a recital” or “first time I wrote a book” (hey, one day it will happen!). Today was the first time I was a professional pianist for a church congregation. AND, I got over a fear of […]

Time, Technology, and Self-Control

Upward Spiral

My life is going so well this summer. I can’t comprehend how quickly and beautifully my life has gone in an upward spiral in June/July. It’s finally my time to get what I have been working towards after a rocky 2016-2017. The bottom of the spiral “To go up, you must start at the bottom.” […]

Frida Fest 2017

Last weekend I went to the Dallas Museum of Art. I wrote a blog post about it here, and there were flyers about a Frida Fest next Thursday. Frida, as in the famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. I thought I would love to go to that.. But I didn’t think I would get to go. […]

Boots in summer

These black boots are walking reminder of how unwilling I am to buy new shoes. These boots guided me through snow of a brown, or pure white color that would leave a unique tie dye pattern. The toes of my socks soaked of water. Nevertheless, they served me well. They continue to serve me well. […]
