Story Time

Since this my personal website, I still have days when I just want to discuss my life and things currently affecting me. So hunker down for story time.

college taught me what NOT to pursue

As I reflect upon the college career that I am so soon leaving behind (which is still so weird and surreal to fully comprehend), I think of all the expectations I went into this phase of life with. I had hoped to make the most of every moment, calling college some of the “best years …

how to find authentic followers

As a blogger and social media-type person, the followers and engagement inevitably come into play. You cannot measure how well your content resonates with others if you don’t know how many you’re reaching, who keeps coming back to your site and profile, and how your outreach might be changing over time. Obviously the goal is …

five tips for budding bloggers

It may be easy to make a domain name, set up a social media account, and write a post or two, but actually growing a social media presence is much harder. Take it from me: I’ve been blogging as a side hobby for almost two years now (still hard to wrap my head around) and …

accept being single on Valentine’s Day

Every year, we come upon this day and fall into two categories: loving or hating Valentine’s Day. More often than not, our opinion is based on our relationship status. Those who find themselves single on Valentine’s Day end up bashing the holiday’s Hallmark way of making us feel inadequate without a partner. Obviously, I fall …

receiving recognition: the liebster award

Today’s post is particularly exciting because I didn’t expect to be writing it. Since becoming more serious about my blogging ventures, I’ve added myself into several different Facebook groups and apps to get my name out there and find others doing the same. It’s really great that, unlike more structured and traditional forms of media …

how i plan on the path

Ever since third grade, I’ve had some sort of agenda at hand for writing down school assignments each day. Only recently then have I stumbled upon the hype surrounding all-things planning, buying the fanciest Life Planners and all the scrapbook-type accessories. Sorry, but I’m not one to turn my organization into an art project. If …

accepting defeat: when goal-setting doesn’t work

As I was looking through my papers that I’ve accumulated over the past few years and skimming this year’s planner, I stumbled upon a list of goals I made this August looking ahead at this semester I just finished. Oh, man. I was glad about simply surviving the semester and walking out on both feet. …

you’ve got mail: Christmas cards and thoughtful acts

My family every year still writes and sends out Christmas cards to friends and family. The whole Shutterfly-type photo collage and a highlight reel of the past year. Turns out, we’re few and far between for those who actually send these out anymore. It costs money, yes, and I guess there’s texting and email to …

So pumped to say that today I’m going home for the winter break and am DONE with this fall semester! Let me tell you, what a whirlwind it has been. One I wasn’t expecting. But now as I look back at how quickly it has flown by, I can say I’m grateful that it happened…but …
