19 Things to do Before Turning 19

About a month ago, a blogger that I follow on Twitter wrote a post called 20 Things to do Before I’m 20 where she detailed 20 things she wanted to accomplish before her 20th birthday. Her post got me thinking about what kind of things I want to accomplish before my next birthday. Granted, this…

Relationships and Self-Worth

When I was in middle school, I had this friend who always preached about knowing your worth.

The Problem With Sharing Your Life Online

Recently, two content creators I watch on YouTube ran into a slight issue with their fanbase. The pair, who already ran their own separate channels, started a joint channel on which they intended to post vlogs (video logs of their lives) a few times a week or whenever they could.

5 Ways to Beat a Lack of Inspiration

For anyone who doesn’t know, my main creative outlet is photography. I really like looking at other people’s posts on Instagram and coming up with fun little shoots to do with my friends and family and even by myself. The problem is, I recently had to send my lens in for repair and for a week or…

In a Rut

You guys, I’m in a rut. Honestly, I feel so uninspired and so negative and just down about my content. I don’t know what to post, I don’t know if college is getting to me or if life is just treating me harshly, but I’m having a hard time. So I figured, what better thing…

A Sense of Identity

Once upon a time, I hated my hair. Hated it. Absolutely did not like the fact that my hair had to be this weird mix of wavy and curly and black-ish brown. I wanted the hair that the pretty girls had, you know? I wanted my hair to be shiny and always straight or straightened…
