“Comfort can be a dangerous thing. You stick around home all the time where it’s safe and nothing ever changes, and before you know it, you get set in your ways and you quit learning, you quit changing, you don’t grow anymore.” ~Frank Peretti

That quote is beautiful. I have been planning on leaving Wichita to go to college for some time now. I’m not going far; I’m going to University of Missouri Kansas City. Kansas City, MO compared to Wichita, KS though is a whole other world. Lately I’ve been second guessing my decision to leave and have been thinking about transferring to Wichita State after the first semester. I’m trying to make myself “stick around home all the time where it’s safe and nothing ever changes.” But lord knows that’s not me, or who I want to be. I want to be able to keep learning, keep changing, and keep growing.

Figuring out what to wear to a country themed nightclub (what can I say, it’s Kansas) is so much more difficult than it needs to be. Do I dress country or do I break out the club wear? I was trying for a good mix of both with this. Comfortable enough to enjoy myself, but daring enough to draw a little attention. Hoping tonight will be fun!

I never know what to title my creations. Giving it a title makes me feel vain.

Daily Prompt: Far from Home

About five months ago I moved out of my dad’s house and into a house with five roommates. I lived in that house for about two months, and even though it was only fifteen minutes away from the house I grew up in, there were nights spent in my room where I had never felt so disconnected and far from my home. It was so different and often so lonely. This is the farthest I have ever been from home.
