Hiiii My name is Gill (that's Jill, only spelled with a "G"). Well Gillian really, but s’all the same! I used to live in New Orleans, but now I live in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, NJ. I graduated in May with my Bachelors in Environmental Science, and I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer focused on improving watershed health. I'm looking forward to a new adventure once my program ends in July!


Ask me ANYTHING. Really.


Hi Mama Childs!!! (And Papa too!)

This post is dedicated to my most loyal (read: only) reader outside of the Tumblrverse, KC’s Mom. (She’s got it goin’ on!).

Thank you for reading my blog, Mama Childs! I was so humbled to hear that my page is on your favorites list. My blog appreciates the motherly love! You remind me of my own mama, and that is a very good thing :)

[[Cue jealousy from the rest of The Internet.]]

Tonight, I went to my favorite coffee shop to do homework—because I have a TON of it this week— but I couldn’t focus at all. Too much on my mind! So instead, I biked home and used the energy from the giant coffee that I drank to power me through a fun 3ish miler! My foot didn’t hurt at all, and that is a big win! 32 minutes of sweaty joy, followed by chats with my favorite BFG, KC. Perfect!

It was not a very good day, but I feel a lot lighter now! I am thankful for running, The Internet, friends, and friends’ moms. (Probably other things too, but this is what I’m feelin’ right now!)

Love to all!

P.S. Mama Childs, feel free to send me messages saying “hi”! I would love it!
