I've really thought a lot about my happiness the past month, and I've never realized how important it is to have a tranquil living space. I honestly haven't felt real drop-dead killing-me-slowly anxiety the past month. And this is during a time of job interviews and applications, adjusting to a completely new neighborhood, meeting new … Continue reading The Importance of Home
I moved. And let me tell you why I haven't blogged; because I'm busy and happy!! This apartment is really nice and has AC and I love my room and I'm having fun hanging out with my roommates, and it's just so nice. Looking back at last year's move, I was so stressed and I … Continue reading Who’s Ready to Smile?
Howdy all! Just wanted to pop in and say I'll give you a nice detailed update on my life mid-next week. I'm moving apartments today and the rest of the weekend and so I'll be focused on settling in and all of that. We all know how last year's move went and how I was … Continue reading Quick Update: Moving Weekend
The reason I've been gone for so long is because I've been working so much. When I'm not working I'm slowly, very slowly nowadays, chipping away at my novel. I've submitted some stories and poems to competitions and magazines. Or I'm working on articles for Vocal Media. And then I've cut back quite a bit … Continue reading I’ve Been Tired (Good Tired…Mostly)
Was I anxious to start this job? Yes. Did I think I would forget everything I learned in training on my first day with customers? Yes. Did I do pretty well my first day? YESSSSSS.

I got a part time job working in baby clothing retail, and I went in on an apartment with three other super cool people. I started … Continue reading THIS IS WHAT AN UPSWING FEELS LIKE (for the most part)
I really love dogs. They're so darn cute, and I'm so happy that I'm dog walking right now. I'm making money while getting to hang out with dogs. Honestly, I think if you have anxiety or something and you love dogs, I highly highly recommend dog walking at least a little bit. So I could … Continue reading Dogs. All the Dogs.
It's been a little low the past 48 hours. You would think I'd be happy because Barnes and Noble is interested in bringing me on for a job. I love books and I need to make money, so this is a good place to start, I think. If I get my confidence back maybe I … Continue reading In A Constant State of Disappointment
I actually found out this was my 100th post by accident. I went to my home page and it said I had 99 published pieces on here. Haha, so this is my 100th post. What to do, what to do, as Winnie the Pooh would say. Yes, I'm a little bit emotional about Winnie the … Continue reading HAPPY 100TH POST Y’ALL
Okay, I've been putting this off but no longer. I haven't even posted the few selfies I got with friends at graduation yet, because I'm not too good at celebrating big events. It's kind of hilarious. I celebrate things like WOOHOO I MET A DOG TODAY AND IT LICKED MY HAND, THIS WAS GREAT! And … Continue reading It’s Time for the SAPPY GRADUATION POST
