The Roaring Twenties: How we’re all royally screwing it up

I recently read a book by May Jay, Ph.D. entitled, “The Defining Decade: Why your twenties matter – and how to make the most of them now.” In it she discusses how a vast majority of twentysomethings are wasting away their twenties because they think that the “thirty-is-the-new-twenty” culture tells us these years don’t matter…

In the blink of a… light

Life moves really fast. Some say it moves at the speed of a blink of an eye. For me, the month of March moved at the speed of, let’s say a light moving from yellow to red. Up until March 8, my trusted mode of transportation was a silver 2014 Ford Escape. This was my…

I’m not exactly saying no…

I’ve taken a hiatus from a lot of things. It started accidentally – I’m not going to say that I had a grandiose plan to take a break from watching TV every night and instead start running again. I’m not going to say that I decided to cut cold turkey and delete all my dating…

January Reads

When did reading stop becoming something we did every summer? I used to look forward to my summer reading list like a giddy school girl, then again I was also the girl who look forward to the first day of school each year because of all the new school supplies… so maybe I was just…

About Accepting Loss

This is my third time writing this post. Each time I’ve sat down to write it I end up sobbing and I can’t fathom completing the task at hand. Death is funny that way. Each time you talk about it, it’s like losing them all over again. Well, on October 12 my family dog died….

#MonDiary – The First Weekend

Guess what world – this girl has officially moved out into the world and is living alone!  Living by yourself in a city is the best thing I’ve ever done. Seriously, I feel like you should all try this once in your life! Doing very small things makes me feel very accomplished. On Saturday, I…

7 Signs It’s Time To Move Out of Your Parents’ House

I love my parents; I was blessed with a pretty cool set. They’re funny, they swear, they know how to crack a good one-liner and they also know when to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on… they’re pretty much fantastic. But they also got a pretty awesome daughter; I mean I’m…

#ThankfulThursday: A Piece of Plastic

On March 6, I was delivered a lovely pink plastic bracelet (I mean, I purchased it – it didn’t just show up out of the blue – side note, if you find yourself wanting to send me lovely gifts, shoot me an email for my address 🙂 ). Inside this piece of plastic was a…

Be inspired this year

It feels like every year people publish list after list of things you should do, places you should travel to, the new “superfood” you HAVE to eat, etc… it’s all a little uninspiring, don’t you think? People post all these things tell you what to do and how to do it, and they really don’t…

23 Things I learned This Year

Today, I turned 23. This isn’t momentous by any means, I mean this is barely any time lived on this earth, but it’s all the time in the world to me. So, I wanted to do a post about the 23 things I learned during this past year on this beautiful planet: 1. I learned…
