4 Tips For Dealing With Wanderlust

I am a big fan of traveling and exploring. I am also a college student with insufficient funds to satisfy my constant desire for traveling.

What Made My Week

Someone on my Twitter timeline declared 2018 the year we tell people how we feel about them, honestly. I think that’s a pretty good idea. I mean, as a person who interacts with people regularly, I know it’s hard sometimes to gauge how others feel. But I think it’s also hard sometimes to say what…

College is Stressing Me Out

I’ve had a really difficult time trying to get this feeling into words, so I hope that this blog post makes sense. If you’ve read any of my other blog posts, you’ll know that I am in college. I am finishing up my second year now and am pretty much set to graduate in 2020….

Girl Power

I’ve been really, really getting into the whole concept of girl power. The whole concept of strong women who work hard for what they want and have worked hard for what they have is something that really resonates with me. With the new year quickly approaching, I want to make it one of my goals…

Get Out of Your Own Way

I’m an overthinker. I analyze everything I’m going to do, and then I analyze my analysis. I will worry all the way until I find myself in the middle of a downward spiral complete with anxious feelings and I’m on the way to convincing myself that whatever I’m thinking of doing is going to go…

Too Much

I have this insatiable desire to put everything on pause. My school life and work life feel like the stars have aligned and everything is falling into place, but my personal life feels a bit like someone tossed it in the shredder. A year ago, I never would have imagined that everything would be this…

Let’s Chat

Ah, communication. I feel like we all think our communication skills are amazing until we have that one conversation that goes so terribly that we wonder what we thought was so great about our skills in the first place. And this week has been a big lesson in communication for me. So, hopefully, I can…

Revisited 19 Things to do Before Turning 19

5 months ago I wrote a blog post about 19 things I wanted to accomplish before turning 19. My 19th birthday was this past Wednesday, the 11th, and I wanted to revisit my list just to see if my priorities have changed in 5 months or how much I have or haven’t accomplished. Here’s the…

A New Level of Tired

The other day a friend of mine said to me, “You look tired.” I’m here thinking, “Gee, thanks dude. That’s  exactly what every person wants to hear.” He then proceeded to explain to me that looking tired isn’t a bad thing, it means you’ve been putting in work in one way or another. He said clearly…

Ambition (Part 2)

I’ve been really stressed out lately. Life is good, but it’s a challenge to balance everything that I want to take care of and it isn’t that the task is impossible, it’s just that it’s different from anything I’ve ever experienced. Last week, I missed posting on this blog for the first time in a…
