Adjusting To A New Lifestyle

2018 has been a year of many changes and growth for me. I traveled to Europe for the first time. I found love abroad and began a new relationship (with an amazing guy). I went to Electric Forest for the first time. I visited New York for the first time. Boyfriend came to visit and […]

Long-Distance Relationship

I’m constantly stuck between two opposites when it comes to my love life. Am I the independent woman who doesn’t need her boyfriend’s constant attention or am I the overly emotional woman who gets into passive aggressive mode over a missed FaceTime call? I know certain experiences in past relationships affect reactions in current ones […]

This Travel Bug Of Mine + New Goals

When I was young, like 5 years old young, all I knew is that I wanted to help make the world a better place. Okay so maybe I didn’t exactly use those words and though my dream job has changed a fair amount, I’ve never strayed from wanting to make the world a better place. […]

Find Your Flow

It’s the first Sunday of June 2018. June is my favorite month, not just because we are finally starting to have nice warm days here in Chicago, not just because the official first day of summer is in June, but mostly because it is my birthday month. Before you ask, no I am not a […]

Am I an Artist? + Rejection

I’m getting my Master’s in Counseling: Art Therapy. In high school, I was an art major. You’d think I would have an easier time calling myself an artist but for some reason it still feels weird in my mouth. Maybe it’s because I feel like my work is not magnificent or maybe because I feel […]

My First Psychedelic Trip

Semester One, Done.

Okay…so I missed posting last week but I have a valid reason. Three projects/presentations, one paper, one ginormous take home exam, and a final to study for all within 8 days I’d say is pretty good reason for not posting. A.k.a the first thing I learned from my first semester is it’s not like undergrad […]

No One’s 2nd Choice

Let me start off by warning that this may be a rant. Now for the back story. There’s this guy at work that started bringing one of my favorite coworkers/close friend gifts. Being the queen of instigation when it comes to people’s love lives, I was all for this. It would have worked out great […]

Let’s Talk Anxiety

I have this thing where I get really nervous when I want to speak up and voice my opinion. This mainly just happens in classrooms but then that’s probably the worst place it can happen. I start to sweat profusely, my hands shake uncontrollably, and I swear people within 10ft. of me can hear the […]
