Two and a Half Weeks In…

It seems that there has been a lot of hate in the world since Jan. 20, aka ever since Trump has come to office. And yeah, I went into this administration full of hope and full of faith in our new POTUS. However, my hopes for a peaceful and united country are now shattered. InContinue reading “Two and a Half Weeks In…”

What I Learned in My Jewelry and Metals Class 

During my last semester as a college student, I took a jewelry and metals class. My train of thought was this: Oh, jewelry. I like to bead and do wire working things. I need a free elective. Why not? It soon became the biggest mistake ever. I soon realized that it wouldn’t be wire orContinue reading “What I Learned in My Jewelry and Metals Class “

What They Don’t Tell You About Post-Grad Life

A few months ago, I graduated from Southern Connecticut State University, proudly wearing my cap and gown complete with tassels and eagerly walked the stage to get my long awaited degree. A few months later, I am in this thing called the real world. Now, the real world is this funny little thing. It isContinue reading “What They Don’t Tell You About Post-Grad Life”

Who Are You To Tell Me How To Feel?

If I had a dollar every time someone told me to (or not) feel a certain way, I would have enough money to pay for the car I want to buy in full. Don’t feel this way because it’s not worth it. Don’t cry about that boy because he is not worth it. It’s beenContinue reading “Who Are You To Tell Me How To Feel?”

A Letter to The New President

Dear President Trump, Three days ago, you’ve inherited a country that is divided. Two days ago, millions of women all over the world marched to make their voices heard.

A Thank You Letter To My Therapist

A few weeks ago, I left my therapist’s office for the last time. Leaving my therapist’s office, I had realized how everything had come full circle since I had first attended therapy about ten months ago. It is safe to say that my 2016 was spent in a therapist’s office. I started going to therapyContinue reading “A Thank You Letter To My Therapist”

Sorry (So) Not Sorry For Double Posting

Every now and then on Instagram, I would see people posting a few times a day, for whatever reason. These people would then caption the photos with ‘sorry for double posting…’ My question is why? I am going to admit it. I am in fact guilty of double posting on more than one occasion. IContinue reading “Sorry (So) Not Sorry For Double Posting”

Honest Thoughts About Dating

Let me be bluntly honest by stating that I freaking hate dating. I hate the awkwardness of first dates, the whole DTR (defining the relationship) concept and the rules about what is okay to do at what given stage. I find it both crazy and confusing, and I graduated college with a 3.0 GPA, so I amContinue reading “Honest Thoughts About Dating”

A Reflection of 2016

Let me be the first to tell you that 2016 was the year a lot of legendary stars passed away-from Carrie Fisher, Prince, David Bowie and George Michael. It was a year full of tragedy, and change in the world, a year that we learned the importance of coming together, rather than coming apart. Personally,Continue reading “A Reflection of 2016”
