Hi there, my name is Stephen Schwed and I write about relevant to random topics that are important to me and hopefully in turn, to others.  I started this blog because I like the challenges that emerge from writing and self-publishing. I think writing is the best gateway to self-reflection and creative expression. To remind me of this all, here is a quote from novelist, Barbara Kingsolver:

“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer”.

Who are you?

I graduated from Tulane University in 2017 with a major in psychology and Spanish. I then taught English abroad for a year in Armenia, Colombia, followed by a year teaching in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have now returned to America to complete my Masters in Counseling Psychology at the University of Denver. When I am not writing or studying, I teach yoga online via Zoom and am looking forward to getting back into studios soon.
