A Very Merry Christmas.

Disclaimer: This may be the deepest blog post I have written so far. Today, I finally did a thing. I cleaned out a lot of stuff from my years growing up in my hometown. I have been putting off doing so for awhile because I knew it would make me a little emotional and up…

Closing 2016

It’s been one hell of a year. I feel like I am not the only person who can say this. For some, it has been one of the greatest years of their life. Maybe they received a job promotion, got married, or had a baby. Maybe they have traveled or they have had something seemingly…

Should You Write an Autobiography If You Aren’t Famous?

I mean, would anyone read it? Picture this: you’re walking through a bookstore, maybe alone, maybe with your friend, or maybe on a date. You’re looking at one of the bookcases at the front of the store, the one that usually holds new releases. On that bookcase, you see one of the books has cover…

Here’s How It Feels.

Here’s how it feels. Like an ocean in the middle of a hurricane. Like a tree during a tornado. Life chaos. Here’s how it feels. Like a small child missing their mother. Like a dog who has lost it’s owner. Like despair. Here’s how it feels. Like you’re in a storm that will never end….

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay.

Being a woman in 21st century America means I am very fortunate. I have a high school diploma, I am attending university, and I have many more opportunities¬†that women in other countries do not have. With that said, there are still problems that exist in my life, one of which is that I feel like…

Reflection.

Here I am at 19 years old, receiving a college education, and sometimes I still feel like I am failing at life. Here I am at 19 years old watching friends of mine struggle to stay above water when it comes to their responsibilities and personal lives. They too, sometimes feel like they are failing….

Bubble.

You can’t let yourself live inside a bubble, one that only allows you to get so close to things, but not fully embrace them. It’s simple. Maybe we only get one life, maybe we have eternal life, or maybe we live more than one life. Regardless, you only have today. So, with the day you…

Demons.

Here is something to think about, and this post is not going to be very long, so read it if you have time. Demons. No, not the kind that are brought to life in movies. The ones that live inside each and every one of us. We all grapple with demons in our minds. We…

19 things I’ve learned by 19.

My 19th birthday is less than two weeks away, and lately I have been reflecting on the things I have learned throughout my short lifetime. I am fully aware that I have much more to learn, so much more than I can even fathom learning. But, there are at least 19 things I have learned…

Why Letter Writing is Important.

Think about. It’s 2016. All of us, no matter how much we try to say we don’t, appreciate technology. It brings us together, it allows us to capture beautiful moments and it vastly improves our lives each and every year. However, this is not to say that all things of the past need to disappear….

Winter.

Some hate it. Some love it. Personally, I’d rather hibernate than participate in ANYTHING having to do with winter.¬†Except ice skating, but that’s inside. The clothes you get to wear in the winter are pretty cool too. Next to fall, it’s probably the second best season for trendy clothes. It’s always sweater weather. AND you…
