Learning to Enjoy Your Own Company

Let’s be real, having a squad of friends is something we all wish we could have, but that doesn’t mean we necessarily need it to be happy. I’ve always been told that if you learn to love life, life will love you back. The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve given precedent to that idea. I’ve…

Feng Shui Your Mind to Confidence

Are there ever times where you feel that you are a Pumpkin amongst Cinderellas of the world? You feel average, hopeless and just not “cool” enough? Do you ever wish you were one of those trendy girls on Instagram seeming to live fabulous lives, while you’re struggling with paying rent, passing your classes and figuring…

The Stages of Post-Grad Life

Graduating college is an exciting time, but like any transition period, it can bring a whirlwind of emotions and changes that you may not be properly prepared for. Call me the cliche, “emotional train wreck,” but I have gone through as many emotions enough to qualify me for the leading role in a  Lifetime network film. Although…

All the Reasons Why Your 20s are One Big Paradox

If I have learned anything about being in your twenties, it’s that it’s a time period full of contradictions. It’s supposed to be some of the best years of your life, when your identity forms solidly into the person you have always meant to become and your overall mindset is clearer than ever. I’m not sure…

23 Things to Know When Being 23

So I recently turned 23 and the freak out moment happened where I realized I really am a freakin’ adult (Is it too early to have a quarter-life crisis?) I’ve always used the excuse that being 22 is a tutorial year for being an adult, so it’s okay if I still seem like a kid….

Sorry, I’m Really Not Sorry

One thing I’ve learned within myself and something that could apply to other females is the consistent need to say the word “Sorry.” Regardless of what the situation is, how we feel or how the other person feels, we always say sorry. It’s almost like we are genetically made to have an obligation to apologize for every…

An Awkward Girl Enters a Bar

I may sound like a rarity, but I actually waited until I turned 21 until having my first alcoholic drink. There has always been so much excitement and angst for that moment of ultimate freedom to enter places you have never had access to and the ability to be like Carrie Bradshaw and order that…

Real Talk: The Harsh Realities of Being in Your Twenties

If I have learned one thing about being in your twenties, it’s that it is a time period filled with harsh realities. I used to count the days until I can say I’m living in my second decade, enjoying every wonderful moment it has to bring. What I didn’t realize is how much shit you…

Meatless Mondays

Call me superficial, but I actually like to abide by the “Meatless Monday” Trend. Now I’m by no means a certified vegetarian, but there are days when I am really not in the mood for meat. I tend to like scouting for local healthy spots and, recently, I found my  new favorite place to indulge…

About that “Swimsuit Season”

It’s that time of the year again, where every person faces the inevitable questions, “Are you ready for Summer?” “Beach trip?” ” Want to go to Target and get new Bathing Suits?” “So, about that New Years Resolution of getting in shape,  ehh?” I don’t know about you, but after dealing with a busy school…
