About My Blog

"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop." 
-Mother Theresa 

The title of my blog comes from this quote. As a Christian, I feel that I'm put on this earth to serve the Lord. Right now, I'm called to do so in the city I love, Pittsburgh. Sometimes it doesn't seem like I'm "doing much" to improve Pittsburgh from behind my desk in my air-conditioned office, but as Mama T reminds me: every drop I put into those three rivers makes them a little bit more than they were before.

I originally started this blog to update friends and family about my first year as a PULSEr. After a 5-month hiatus from blogging, I decided that maybe it's just whatever I want it to be. Sometimes, I talk about PULSE. Sometimes, I talk about my placement. But mostly, I just talk about whatever's happening in my life here in the City of Bridges.

Here comes the boring but necessary disclaimer: This blog is a reflection of my own thoughts, feelings, and experiences and does not necessarily reflect those of PULSE, AmeriCorps, my placement, or any other nonprofit agency mentioned.
