Self-Care? What are you?

Self-care is often a very unbeautiful thing. It is making a spreadsheet of your debt and enforcing a morning routine and cooking yourself healthy meals and no longer just running from your problems and calling the distraction a solution. It is often doing the ugliest thing that you have to do, like sweat through another workout or tell a toxic friend you don’t want to see them anymore or get a second job so you can have a savings account or figure out a way to accept yourself so that you’re not constantly exhausted from trying to be everything, all the … Continue reading Self-Care?

2/ 24 ~ but first .. let me Social Reform

Hello! Happy Saturday! Have you ever done something you really don’t want to do? On a Saturday? At 8:30 in the morning ? I can now say I have and I don’t regret the pain of rushing out the door to go there. It was really tough at first but once I got there and saw I wasn’t alone in being uber tired and slumped there, I began to listen. It was a Freedom talk. That’s all I knew I was getting myself into.

Don’t Let College try to fool you.

Hello there! So I am no pro at college but I was scared of what was to come of it. I thought everyone was going to use big words such as paraphernalia ( copied this word from an email I just got), or … well some other big word that I don’t know how to spell. Anywhoo. It’s really not that bad. If you ever feel out of place or like you don’t belong; just know you aren’t alone. There’s tons like you that just have really good poker faces about it. ” Fake it till you make it “ Ah … Continue reading Don’t Let College try to fool you.
