An Avid Reader’s Act of True Love – Caitlin Proctor

I like to pair my reading with an environment. Childhood stories are either read aloud to young ears or consumed silently in the quiet, dim corners of books stores while my mouth forms the words through a smile.

Love Your Body Week: Amber Krzys | The Pacifican

Krzys shared her own experiences with trying to attain an unreachable status of perfection: “Every single day of my life was about how I could be thinner; how I could fix my body; how I could make it better.” Krzys’ early professional career as a performer made her hyperaware of her physical appearance, and it became an obsession.
