Oh my gosh please don’t let it pass you by.
Please get off your phone and talk to the person sitting next to you if you’re here on the Internet and you shouldn’t be.
Sometimes all I need is a really long walk and a hug. So I do it for myself, by myself, to heal myself, from myself.
I follow a lot of people on social media.
Yes, surrounding myself with filtered and curated glimpses of the lives of others is probably not the healthiest use of my time. Scratch that: definitely not. I’ll the FIRST to admit that.
But these platforms and these people are not going away. The digital phenomena of sharing images and video and captions and narrations of our lives as we live them is not disappearing anytime soon. It’s actually growing - at an overwhelming pace nonetheless.

I hope you live like this.
Springing up everywhere, just as you are.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing stories inspired by my real and imaginative experiences since I learned at age 7 that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
