Your Source of Happiness

Today, while scrolling Twitter, I came across this post that someone I follow had written on The Odyssey. In her post, the author was describing how now, a little more than two months after her breakup with her longtime boyfriend, she has recovered from the sadness of the breakup. The author writes how she took…

A Short Appreciation Post

As I sort of established in my first post on this blog, I am in a long distance relationship. Lately, I’ve been looking into sending my boyfriend a really cool gift mostly for fun but also because we’re coming up on an anniversary soon. Maybe the gift won’t be something that breaks the bank or…

The Beginning of the End

After countless hours of studying, crying, laughing, procrastinating, longing for time to sleep, working hard and hardly working, partying, learning, and so much more, Thursday marked the beginning of the end. On Thursday we walked through those double doors as students for one last time. We hugged all the teachers that taught us more than…

So close

I always thought I would be really excited to graduate and I am but at the same time the thought of leaving everything that I’ve grown to know and like (love is a strong word), makes me a little bit sad. While I am excited to go on and see what the world has to…

Ocean of Elegance – Product Review

Prom was last night but before I went, I desperately needed a dress that was pretty but that wouldn’t be exactly like every other girl’s dress. In my search for a dress, a friend of mine sent me picture of dress that she sort of liked from Lulu’s. I had previously heard of Lulu’s but…

A Letter To Girls

To: All girls * You don’t have to justify your love for someone. No matter who that person is, as long as you love them and as long as you know it and feel it in your heart and mind and soul, your love is valid. * You are allowed to feel free and to…

Living In The Shadows

Usually it happens that the younger siblings sort of live in the shadow of their older siblings. The older siblings have such impressive accomplishments and such refined skills and the younger siblings end up living in the shadows, never really given the spotlight. For me I think it’s the other way around. I’m the oldest child…

Hope

Life is hard. This isn’t some new or inspiring idea though, I mean, life has always been hard and it will continue to be hard. Life has this really funny way of throwing all of these challenges at us and sometimes it is so easy to feel like there is no possible way that any…

Scars

I think we all have scars. One way or another whether our life has been perfect or a complete mess, we all have some person or some instance that has left its mark on our hearts or on our physical beings. Sometimes the things that happen in our lives leave scars for better or worse….

What I Learned From High School

I’m about to finish up my last year of high school in about a month and while I know most people on this site have already graduated high school or are currently in high school, I thought I would still share some of the little things I learned throughout the past four years.  1. You should…

Fitness Goals

For the past few years every time New Year’s comes around I’ve been one of those people. You know the ones. The ones who set New Year’s resolutions like: “This year I’m going to work out for at least 30 minutes every day!” or “This year I’m going to hit the gym so hard that by the…
