Two Girls, Sharing a Pair of Binoculars

“Cheers…to the Events Tha...


There’s a lot of moments in a day. Happy moments, sad moments, scary moments, exciting moments, moments of pure joy, moments of pure enlightenment, moments that make you wet your pants… (on special occasion). There’s a lot of moments in a day, but there are even more moments in a year. At the end of […]

Silent Noise

Silent Noise

Crossing campus is a daily adventure. Being the person who is either speed walking because I’m late for a presentation (Not running. I wouldn’t want people to know I’m a freshman), or just meandering along, avoiding life’s responsibilities at the present moment, I can’t help but utilize one of my God-given talents: People-watching. I have this […]

Don’t Blink-


“Scientists have shown that the average person blinks 15-20 times per minute. That’s up to 1,200 times per hour and a whopping 28,800 times in a day.” (Huffington Post) I did the math, that’s over 200,000 times in one week, and about 10.5 MILLION times in a year!!! (Check out the highlighted link! It’s super interesting!) This thoughtless task […]

The Gift of the Moment: Presence


I heard once that 90% of life is showing up. Cool. I do that. (…Five years later) “But wait?…” “EUREKA I GET IT NOW!” The relationship isn’t just physical. It’s spiritual and it’s mental. It’s about being present at every moment. It’s about seeing the whole picture versus the objects of interest. It’s driving down […]

My Little Wings

[[Finding my wings didn’t happen in a typical passage to adulthood ceremony. I didn’t embrace my freedom from adolescence by paying for my own gas or going through my first heartbreak. I didn’t even get them from starting a blog. Instead, this may sound odd, but I literally just ‘found’ them. I’m not kidding. They were in a drawer. Buried under so many layers of dust […]

Introductory Flight-


Hello, good folks of the “Back to Blogging” reading community! I am Vince*, the binoc-gals’ flying cohort, and it is with much pleasure that I address you as the first “Two Girls Sharing a Pair of Binoculars” guest writer! *(-not actually “Vince.” It was a suggestion as a pseudonym; Jacey took the pen-name and made […]

How It Really Feels to Be High


I’ve heard people say how exhilarating, how euphoric it feels to get high. Some people believe you have to be out of your mind to try it. I’ll be your witness: people don’t lie. Let me start by telling you about my friend. He’s a plane guy. He flies planes. He talks about planes. He […]

The Problem With Metamorphosis

static character

“I am a static character, a caterpillar that never metamorphosed, a middle-aged man who wears his letter jacket regularly… Did everybody else truly grow up?… Or is their youthfulness only concealed under a façade of feigned boredom and a lack of interest?…Or, as the case may be, am I just worse at acting?” –Anonymous Facebook.

A Celebration of Hopelessness

A Celebration of Hopelessness

I don’t know why, in a world with zillions of things happening in a single moment, I sometimes have moments of complete clarity, but more often of utter confusion. Because, well, that’s just how life goes. I was recently hit with a moment of such befuddlement that I thought it was blog worthy. This moment consisted of a phrase that […]

High School (sound triumphant backgro...


I don’t care what anyone says. High school is not what it’s cracked up to be. I was one of those kids who imagined high school as being glamorous in every way. I’d start varsity and date boys and do cool things with cool people while I blasted cool music in my super (insert cool […]
