This one snuck up on me, as the end of the video will give away. This one is primarily about my mother, though certainly applies to both of my parents. The primary lesson in all this is the danger of prioritizing material wealth and well-being over emotional health and well-being, physical health, interpersonal relationship health,…Read more Conversations With Dead People – Episode 7: Patient Zero of My Dysfunctional Relationships

A Casual Cam and More Polished Demo Recording of I’ll Be There from the Musical, The Pirate Queen

On St. Patrick's day I felt nostalgic for the performing days, so I attemptedĀ a casual performance of a song I used to sing a lot back in the day.

Conversations With Dead People – Episode 4: The Sister that Chose Not to be a Parent

See the Youtube video. It says it all really. My sister saved me in many ways thru my childhood. For this I am ever grateful.

Conversations with Dead People – Episode 1: In-Love with an ISTJ (as an INFJ)

Okay, maybe not actually dead, but certainly dead relationships. I'm a Buffy nerdĀ so I couldn't resist (it was the most introspective and psychologically powerful episode in the entire series in my opinion). As I see it, you cannot always bridge the gap created between two individuals, but you can find a way to express the…Read more Conversations with Dead People – Episode 1: In-Love with an ISTJ (as an INFJ)
