“Courage is amazing because it can tap into the heart of fear, take that frightened energy and [turn] it towards initiative, creativity, action and hope.” John O’Donohue
my mom named me Tiffany, but then told me she almost named me Jade. i’m still not over that. late twenties. you can find me kicking it somewhere between brooklyn and providence, likely reading, also possibly snacking or running or baking or trying to keep my plants from dying. TFC is a space dedicating to contemplating and demonstrating courage in life and art. a guide to the sections: ESSAYS include creative writing, interviews with friends, life updates, etc. at CNSDR, I curate lists of quotes, articles, music, and recipes I currently find interesting. if you know me, you know I’m obsessed with CITIES and in this section, I’ll try to turn you into an urbanophile. a friend once told me that “cedar grows out of cement you know,” and that motto has shaped my current attitudes towards money. I am bad with money. I want to be better. I also want to teach English in Thailand next summer, which will require much budgeting and saving. read about this journey at THE CEDAR PROJECT.
