    The Consumerism Side of Life

    The new Apple iPhone 11 series was released a few weeks ago and people are jumping at the bit to buy it (haha including me). From a marketing point of view, Apple has done a fabulous job of getting their consumers to want their latest products. However, this raises the…

    Why I Became a Make-A-Wish Volunteer

    Last month marked my one year anniversary of becoming a Make-A-Wish Foundation volunteer. It was actually by chance that I become a volunteer, but I’m happy I did neither the less. For those that don’t know, this story starts over ten years ago when my wish came true, haha back…

    When The “What Ifs” Come Knocking

    Everyone has moments in their life when they don’t know if they can do something and I’m no different. This is especially true when facing a new, different or stressful situation. You start thinking what if this happens, what if I can’t do it, what if I don’t know how,…

    Dying With Dignity and Decisions

    Death is a part of life, yet why are we so afraid to talk about it? For this reason, it’s perfect for this month’s edition of #theressomethingweneedtotalkabout. Now don’t get me wrong, death is certainly not something I think about every day, but you can’t deny that it is part…

    The Plastic Straw Debate: Turtle vs Disabled Person

    While the plastic ban has been around for a while now, when it was first announced it was quite the hot topic, so I thought I’d throw my two cents in here. When plastic bags and, therefore, straws were first banned, everyone was doing it to protect the animals, in…

    No Wheels No Play

    My wheelchair goes in today to get my new ventilator put on the back of it, which is very exciting as the new ventilator has a new feature called a “sip and puff” which means I don’t have to always sport my “sexy elephant” look anymore, as I can just…

    The Sexy Elephant Look

    Mondays are usually all about #manimonday, but seeing as I don’t have a new design on my nails this week, I thought I’d continue with another blog post about me because I can’t just drop a bombshell about my disability and then not explain it. It’s a pretty long story…
