Hello, dear readers! It's Valentine's Day! Or, for most of my life, I stubbornly referred to it as Single Awareness Day (and honestly, it still is), because I wasn't lucky enough to be in a relationship and have something to celebrate. I was basically this lovey-dovey holiday's Scrooge. It wasn't until I got a little… Continue reading The Mind Trap of Advertising Commercial Holidays: Valentine’s Day Edition
This is a post that I've been meaning to write for a while now. It wasn't a planned post by any means, but each time one of these moments would happen, when I'd think back on them, I'd just sit and think, Yeah, I really want to write about this; both here on the blog… Continue reading Those Every Day Moments

I reach out to those old friends and admired acquaintances and wish… Continue reading Reflections of the Past
I'm a super positive person. That's just kinda how my boat floats. And yet, I love to complicate that perspective--or part of my personality, rather--by, at the same time, also instinctively assuming the worst case scenario about everything. I touched on this a little bit in a previous post, but today, that realization has just been… Continue reading The Never-Ending Siren of Worst Case Scenarios
There's a line from Twenty One Pilot's "Migraine" that says, "Sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind." I really love that line. I also wish they gave advice on how to do just that. I'm an over-thinker. A worrywart, as my companions and parents growing up dubbed me. I've always been this way. I… Continue reading Frankly, I Have No Idea What to Title This Post
