Reflections of the Past

I experienced an interesting juxtaposition over the past few days, inspired by celebrating Thanksgiving. I've always had this quirk where, on Thanksgiving and Christmas every year--usually during the commute to whomever is hosting that year--I go through all the contacts in my phone. I reach out to those old friends and admired acquaintances and wish… Continue reading Reflections of the Past

Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Six

Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week’s Goal: Be conscious but be forgiving. Try to exercise when you can. Status: Success? I didn't really work out and didn't eat the best, but I didn't beat myself up last week, either. I knew it was going to be that kind of week and I… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Six

A Whole Lotta Thankfulness

I know what you're thinking: Great, another stereotypical Thanksgiving post where some random blogger writes about everything she's thankful for. Wahoo. You know what? That's exactly what this post is, so let's get right to it, shall we? I'm one of the lucky ones. I have a lot to be thankful for and live a… Continue reading A Whole Lotta Thankfulness

Book Review

It felt like it took an eternity to actually come out and even though I get that publishing is a slow business, I… Continue reading Communication Failure

Frugal to a Fault

Apparently November is Financial Literacy Month--which I totally didn't know until YouTuber Nerdy and Quirky talked about it in one of her vlogs. Not only was it a funny (and relatable) video, but it was great inspiration for a really apt topic to write about this week, as I looked back on my own finances.… Continue reading Frugal to a Fault

Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Five

Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week’s Goal: Walk 3x. Status: Negative. I walked once and didn't exactly eat the best, so weighing in tomorrow won't be the most favorable thing. Considering this upcoming week is Thanksgiving, I'll definitely have to do my best to not go overboard on everything. This Week’s Goal:… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Five

Judging A Book By Its Cover

You know the phrase. We all know it. Yet, I absolutely, totally do it.  It's not always in a bad way, like being automatically turned off by a book if the cover isn't up to what I believe the standard to be (and how did I create this mental standard? Who bloody knows). Like, if I… Continue reading Judging A Book By Its Cover
