About PJ

Peaks Journal is a chill blog that doesn’t have a ‘side’ or a ‘niche.’ The prevailing theme here is ‘freedom,’ and ‘thoughtfulness.’ So you may find critiques on religion, some satire and many other thoughtful articles written from different perspectives.

Many of the articles written on Peaks Journal are by guest writers who like sharing their thoughts on PJ. The rest of the articles are written by me.

The blog is also managed by me and my whimsical tastes. Enjoy!

About Me 

I’m a fierce proponent of being true to one’s self.

I’m a self-proclaimed aesthete, an amateur literary critic (for now) and a history buff with a BA in Political Science and History from Wesleyan College.

I was born in Connecticut in the 90’s, then relocated to a small town south of Atlanta, GA in the early 2000’s.

That move was the first experience I had with suddenly interacting with many different people whose cultural values were so distinct from my own.

I remember teachers calling “Bernice,” and me answering, “yeah” with inflection, only to be met with an arched eyebrow. We say ‘yes maam’ 
here in the South.

Sure. ‘Yes maam’ may not be the hugest cultural difference. But the experience instilled in me a desire not only to know these sorts of values, but to understand them as well – human to human, heart to heart.
