The Mind Trap of Advertising Commercial Holidays: Valentine’s Day Edition

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

Those Every Day Moments

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

So Guess What, Brain?

This mini...dare I call it a rant? I think it's more like word vomit. Yeah, let's go with word vomit. Anyway, this word vomit is brought to you most likely by a combination of period hormones, the general nature of an overthinking soul and the need to release emotions through writing it out. Ta-da. So,… Continue reading So Guess What, Brain?

Or how I overthink every little thing, to the point of exhaustion. Or how the combination of these things makes life just a little more complicated than… Continue reading This Post is Definitely All Over The Place

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

The Never-Ending Siren of Worst Case Scenarios

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

Frankly, I Have No Idea What to Title This Post

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
