Learning to Enjoy Your Own Company

Why Coloring is the New Therapy

Remember when we were little kids and wanted to spend our days doing nothing, but color? We would have our buckets of crayons and colored pencils besides us 24/7. We would think every picture we colored was a straight-masterpiece, yet looking at it now, you see that you had a strange eye for color coordination. Well, as…

Food for Thought: Vegan Pizza

Being a lactose-intolerant has it’s downfalls. I’m not able to enjoy dairy products, like everyone else, simply because my system will corrupt.

Day at the Farmer’s Stand

Call me weird, but I always feel like a giddy little kid, anytime I get to go grocery shopping. Being that I’m now on Spring Break, I have been able to take some “Me Time” and do what I enjoy doing best. After visiting a local farmer’s stand I love, I left with a “Yummy Bundle.” It…
