Start Here! | Earth is School

Updated: 13 hours ago

Do you remember how in elementary school, high schoolers seemed so old? And college kids? Pshh, full-grown adults. In your little mind, life would play out simply. Grade school. College. Cool hat with tassel and diploma. Get job right away (because OBVIOUSLY you’d know what you wanted by then, you’d be a GROWNUP for heaven’s sake) and all the rest of life was just a blurry, happy sea of color in your mind. Am I right?!


Boy were we wrong, sister. I graduated, albeit with a cool tassel, and floated out into the scary abyss of the real world, honestly not really knowing how to be a fully autonomous person yet. Thanks to the good ol’ grading system of traditional schooling, I am still terrified of failing at anything.


I digress. My point is, it took me a minute to find out that what really matters ( hint: it’s not the grades or the achievements, like everyone told us for the first 2 decades of our lives) and that in fact, my education had barely just begun.


Now I believe that the Earth is the only true School to teach us what we need to know.


And if our time on Earth is School, that makes life the ultimate class, designed for us to learn to navigate this wild, mysterious universe and try to figure out


1. How to truly love everyone and ourselves

2. How to use the unique gifts we’ve been given to serve the world

3. To enjoy the ride as much as possible along the way.


Here’s how it works:


You’re enrolled in the School of Earth as long as you’re alive.


Every experience, amazing and awful, is a lesson, and every person you meet is your teacher.


There are tests, but there are no grades.


There’s NO competition, because your course is 100% unique and tailored specifically to YOU.



This place is a collection of lessons I've learned so far from the world (and its people) around me. My hope is that you can come here to find a little inspiration on a dreary day, or to stop by and pick up some tools & resources to help you be your full creative badass self, or to just feel like there’s someone on your side when you’re feeling alone.


Here, you’ll find tips on how to use your creativity to


  • feel more empowered to make decisions that ring true with who you are

  • overcome fears and obstacles standing in your way from being your truest self

  • figure out what we really need as humans to feel truly fulfilled




You’ll also find advice about performing/listening to/using music to elevate your life, whatever phase you’re in.


You’ll ALSO find tidbits on how to up your traveling game as a creative to get the most inspiration and bang for your buck possible.


We’re all in this together, babe. You’re already on the bandwagon, because you’re alive… now it’s time to start enjoying the open road and tricking out your whip exactly how you want it. So take a look around Earth is School and see if anything’s calling your name!


I wanna hop on the bandwagon!
