I’ve been through a lot of changes in the last year: battling depression, leaving school, moving to New York City, working at a tech start-up, moving back to the midwest, and now adjusting to working remotely and balancing blogging in the midst of all of it. I look at how stressful the last year has been but I also realize that this time of change is just a part of growing up and everyone my age has either experienced that stress or will be very soon. I’m by no means an expert at handling stress (I’m known to hole up in… View Post

College blogging has a special place in my heart – I got my start college blogging, afterall! While I’ve moved on from college, I know a lot of my readers (let’s be honest, most of them!) are in college or going to be in college and could benefit from fresh college posts. That’s where the blogging community comes in! I’ve got a few great guest posts lined up from stellar college bloggers, and Samantha is up first telling you all about different tools incoming freshman can use to make their lives easier! Hello lovely! If you are an incoming freshman, then… View Post

I’m about to get touchy-feely here, so prepare yourself. I talk about moving to New York allllll the time and mostly I’m talking about cool and exciting things (like casually seeing Jimmy Fallon) but there is a darker side to moving somewhere where you don’t know anybody. And that’s homesickness. Homesickness strikes out of nowhere and it’s the worst. I can’t walk by the central park zoo without tears stinging my eyes (the zoo smell is reminiscent of the midwest), and I have a nasty habit of listening to the song Temporary Home when I’m already feeling down about being away from the people I… View Post

Hey hey! Long time no chat, friends! So in case you didn’t already know this: I moved to NYC for an internship last week. I’ve been super busy, and things have been pretty unstable for me. (Still homeless, currently reporting from a storage room turned Airbnb in Brooklyn) and I really haven’t had time to do much of anything so I’ve enlisted some help. Kathryn Hadel of Jassamine Elaine stepped in as Mostly Morgan’s first ever (!!!) guest poster, and I’m thrilled with what she had to say! With internships on the brain (mine and millennials everywhere!), Kathryn wrote the ultimate guide to preparing… View Post

Life has been moving really fast lately – I feel like I’m constantly moving a million miles a minute and I really haven’t been able to take time to slow down. I keep telling myself I need to start breathing and taking time for myself – and then I dream up another big project. While I’m all about dreaming and doing, there is something to be said for knowing when enough is enough and taking a break. I’ve been making a lot of changes lately and one more change I want to make is spending more time doing things I love and relaxing.  I teamed up… View Post
