doing what makes you happy is good enough

Okay, raise your hand if you do this: say you’re cool with doing nothing, waiting until the right thing comes along, but secretly you’re being crushed by your own drive and desire to “do something” and make sure you’re not either wasting your time or doing nothing with your life and end up unsuccessful. This was (is) me, and probably you too – wanting desperately to prove that you’re independent and powerful and defined by your own triumphs, not the triumphs…

perks of the scary moments

I feel like me and all my friends are collectively going ‘what are we doing with our lives?’ partially because there are so many options and partially because we’re wondering if we should bother since like, the world is ending? Maybe we should just coast until we head off to the next life? Who knows. But in these weird moments of absolute blinding panic, you really do see the best of the people around you. And really, in all the…

one door closes, punch a hole in the wall next to it and move on

Every once in awhile, you bump into bad eggs. Not like, actual eggs, but people eggs. Bad people. Should’ve just gone with that from the start. But yeah, every once in awhile you bump into bad people. People that aren’t really interested in the upset they cause or what they leave behind on their way to accomplishing whatever they set out to do. Simply put, these people suck. No other way around it. But they exist. I thought, after weeks…

hunger makes me a modern girl

You know, sometimes you’ve just got to say forget it and decide that you’re going to give yourself a little bit of a self care day. Also, sometimes you’ve got to tell yourself to get your shit together and get your head in the game so you can actually enjoy the self care day. I blame Mercury and the solar eclipse. So, instead of being a sad sack all day long I decided to end my sad sackiness after just an hour…

slow your roll

CONFESSION ZONE I have been having a little internal war with myself over the last few days and have been hellishly blue as a result. I’ve been feeling totally purposeless without knowing when/where I’ll be working, feeling like I need to have a ‘good’ ‘impressive’ job right off the bat, etc etc. You all know how this internal diatribe goes and it is bogussssss. Really, I should be focusing on enjoying the brand new city I’m living in, taking the…

i don’t know what i’m doing

If you guys haven’t found your spiritually kickass life guru yet, I really can’t recommend it enough. I recently went back to the tiny town I grew up in for a visit, and going back sort of gave me one of those weird moments of like… what do I say when people ask what I’m doing? Cause really, I’ve got no idea what I’m doing or what I even really want to do. With our cross country move impending (51 days!!)…

life lately + food update

Okay, first thing is first: we recently got a diffuser and my whole house smells so good right now you guys, I just needed to get that out there. It’s distracting and wonderful. I don’t know about you guys, but February snuck up on me so fast. I feel like Christmas was both forever ago and only yesterday. Time is just moving so fast! Before I know it, we’re going to be packing up and leaving this beautiful city where we’ve…

a message from my tiny couch

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday night. It feels like a success that we’ve made it this far this week, doesn’t it? I’m counting it as one, for sure. Class for me started this week, which has so far involved me doing two gruelling ‘introduce yourself’ assignments. Just kidding. About the gruelling part. I’m sure you got that. Anyways. We’re off to a pretty good start to the week, and I’m thinking that’s going to carry on. I went to the gym yesterday…

thoughts on food

I have been thinking a lot about food. I mean, what else is new really, but with a more critical and determined eye than usual. Normally its just like ‘hell yeah, lets eat it’. I’ve been trying to be consistent in watching what I eat and choosing my food carefully. And then, you know, the holidays happened and all of that went out the window. Which isn’t really an excuse but I’m not going to drag myself over it, so.…
