Listen to us talk about winter, SAD, and how we feel about the cold and our advice to beat these seasonal feels. We’re recording in Wilder this time round and we’ll be back with a fresh episode Jan 26th!

 

“I was biased about winter, I wanted to change it so much… I think not trying to change it all the time made it easier.”

What are your weaknesses? How have they helped you?

Bacon Cheeseburgers. They’ve never been any help. A weakness though, that I wish to improve is sometimes being too self-involved in my own bubble. It has helped me think though my thoughts.

Open Mic Night – 11/30/17

The first herHABITAT that was open to the public was our Open Mic. It was a warm evening filled with talent, love, laughter, joy, and community. As people roamed in off the street or to come support their friends, the small intimate space was soon filled and glowing with anticipation as well as the candles that lit the room.
