My name is Addison and I’m a student at American University. In my free time I like to ride my bicycle, Baldie, teach yoga, and run – this year I’m also training for the Potomac 1/2 marathon! In my not-so-spare time, I’m busy studying anthropology, volunteering as a DC reads tutor,
planning AU THON, and playing field hockey! I love to write and hope that you – all the people reading this – find something useful here! On the flip side of that, I hope that this keeps me accountable to writing good, credible information, and really put in the effort to make this an awesome source! Thanks for reading, or for just clicking by!


I leave you with one of my favorite’s from Emily Dickinson:

“NATURE, the gentlest mother,
Impatient of no child,
The feeblest or the waywardest,—
Her admonition mild

In forest and the hill 5
By traveller is heard,
Restraining rampant squirrel
Or too impetuous bird.

How fair her conversation,
A summer afternoon,— 10
Her household, her assembly;
And when the sun goes down

Her voice among the aisles
Incites the timid prayer
Of the minutest cricket, 15
The most unworthy flower.

When all the children sleep
She turns as long away
As will suffice to light her lamps;
Then, bending from the sky, 20

With infinite affection
And infiniter care,
Her golden finger on her lip,
Wills silence everywhere.”
