So, the past few months I made a few mentions of how I was feeling down or overwhelmed. I try to keep things upbeat and happy here, so I never really got into it, but I was brushing things off and I need to get real with y’all for a minute. I wasn’t just feeling down or overwhelmed, I was depressed. I learned the hard way that depression can happen to anyone – even if your life looks perfect from the outside. My life felt like it was going in a downward spiral and there was nothing I could do… View Post

The countdown is on: Only 48 hours and 1 final exam stand between me and a month of relaxation at home and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m not going to lie, this semester may have crushed my spirits just a little bit but I’m ready to come back and crush next semester with the new found energy I’m hoping to acquire at home.

Now that I’m older I am lucky to be in a position where I don’t find myself wanting for much which is probably why everyone tells me that I’m so hard to shop for. Honestly though, I feel as though the college girl demographic in itself is hard to shop for. We are at that age where we are picky in… View Post

I’ve been writing a lot lately about managing your time and being intentional about what your putting your energy into because that is an area I’ve been focusing on making improvements on and I’ve been seeing a lot of progress so I want to pass my newly acquired wisdom to you. The hardest area of my life to manage is school.

As a student it doesn’t really work that way. I… View Post
