A Case Against Cheese

This story begins as most stories begin, sitting at a coffee shop, fiddling between the occasional notification on my iPhone, scrolling through Instagram feeds, and attempting to drink my coffee while it’s hot. Most of my stories begin with this same introduction, and yet, this one feels different. Why does it feel different you ask?Continue reading “A Case Against Cheese”

Why I’m So Over the Moon This Tuesday

…BECAUSE THIS WEEKEND I HIT OVER 150 SUBSCRIBERS and was just so blown away by all of the love and support that I have received on this platform since I first arrived here this past spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never imagined one day that I would spend so much time writing and sharing my thoughts online, butContinue reading “Why I’m So Over the Moon This Tuesday”

I Don’t Want to Subscribe to Instant Gratification Anymore.

I think the most difficult thing about being a writer is actually writing. For any writer, but mostly just myself, the task is something I thoroughly enjoy and loathe with my entire being. It’s like pulling teeth, literally—because the process is pain and torture, but in the end, it’s good because the pain goes awayContinue reading “I Don’t Want to Subscribe to Instant Gratification Anymore.”

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really, Want.

I was listening to a podcast the other day about artists being honest with themselves and answering the question, ‘what do I want?’ At first, I was completely thrown off by the question because the host was talking about it in such a narrow way. He basically was saying, if you’re not working on yourContinue reading “Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really, Want.”

Answering the Call

Welcome to September, The Purpose Issue After driving around to three coffee shops this morning, trying to find a seat at a table to “look pretentious,” as Carrie Bradshaw puts it, and pen the great American novel, I finally found a spot, right next to a charger, in the corner, beside an open window. IContinue reading “Answering the Call”

August is Officially the Worst Month Ever

If August taught me anything, it’s that the best laid plans of mice and men, oft’ go awry. Remember that old saying by Robert Burns you were forced to learn in Literature class in third grade? ‘No.’ Just me? August has taught me exactly that. As intentional as you want to be and as optimisticContinue reading “August is Officially the Worst Month Ever”

Making Sense of Myself

I have been sitting cross-legged for about ten minutes sipping iced coffee staring at a blank screen constantly being reminded by WordPress with a large red blocked statement reading, “You haven’t written anything yet!” Yes, WordPress, I am completely aware of the fact that I have yet to write anything—it’s your problem, because? Since, IContinue reading “Making Sense of Myself”

Welcome to I’m Moving Month

I‘m Moving Month acts as sort of a double entendre, for the physical manifestation of packing my literal self up and moving 1,800 miles across the country to the very literal and figurative manifestation of movement, as it pertains to holistic living and exploration. The idea of I’m Moving Month came to me because IContinue reading “Welcome to I’m Moving Month”

I Got Over My FOMO This Week, & All I Got Was Peace of Mind, Oh Wait.

FO·MO noun. anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on a social media website. “I realized I was a lifelong sufferer of FOMO” Organization Month is in nearing an end and while that has been helpful, it has also made me blatantly aware of the factContinue reading “I Got Over My FOMO This Week, & All I Got Was Peace of Mind, Oh Wait.”

Love Handles, S1E13: Agent of Change, Finale

When I started the Love Handles podcast, I unintentionally labeled them seasonally, as in, at a certain point, the podcast would end to pick up again for another season later. The thing with setting things up seasonally is it allows for pauses, and moments to clarify, create, expand and breathe new life into something, whichContinue reading “Love Handles, S1E13: Agent of Change, Finale”

Kickin’ Ass and Takin’ Risks

Anyone that has known me, knows that I am never in the same place for too long. I blame this partially on my restless Sagittarian heart and the fact that my parents moved so much growing up. I also just feel like the spontaneity of picking up an relocating is somewhat exciting—I think this meansContinue reading “Kickin’ Ass and Takin’ Risks”
