Welcome. I have my Master's in Writing from DePaul University. I have studied writing at Brown University for a summer and with author Dani Shapiro at a summer writing retreat. I write the mental health blog amileaminute.blog. I am working on my first book. Let's get real here. I'm all about being authentic. So no bullshit here. I do yoga. I recently quit running because I hated it. I don't do things I hate anymore. Life's too short! I still take long walks. I hate the gym but it keeps me strong. I meditate. I write poems or as blogger Liz Lamoreux says "poem it out."
