Hey there, lovelies. So, you might know that, in November of 2016, I started running, which really changed a lot of things about my life. Not only did it help me find a different way to manage stress, but it also helped me lose weight (something I'd never been able to pull off), get active… Continue reading The Only Problem Is (Probably) Myself
I was plagued by influenza for the past eight days. And wow, did that suck. I'm still not fully recovered. My body is achy, this cough continues to linger and even going back to work today is taking it's toll, but I'm nowhere near as bad as I was the past week and a half,… Continue reading Wow, That Sucked
I've written about my brain before. Sometimes, my brain really sucks. You know, like how it always goes to the worst case scenario whenever a situation pops up. 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'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
(Tangent before the post even begins: I totally want to use that as a title, for something. So I call dibs.) I've been realizing lately that I do those closest to me the absolute greatest disservice by treating them like eggshells to be tiptoed around. This is especially ridiculous because they don't deserve any such treatment… Continue reading Non-Existent Eggshells
For the first time in a long time, I found myself counting down the days until the weekend was over, hoping that by the time Monday came around, everything would be okay. It all started with me feeling good, even slightly accomplished. I have anxiety on various levels regarding different things and one of them is… Continue reading An Anxiety-Riddled Weekend
To all those people who continue to ask me what I'm doing after graduation and all those souls like mine who still don't know yet: here is your answer.
