Missing Family for Christmas

Christmas movies are like the number one tradition in my family. It’s right next to lights, cookies, and Christmas dinner. My family has a ton of traditions ranging from icing sugar cookies, watching every Christmas movie we can get our hands on (except Diehard which is NOT a Christmas movie), and decorating our tree. OurContinue reading “Missing Family for Christmas”

When Despair Hits

There’s never a perfect time to have hard conversations about mental health. Withe holidays approaching and everyone feeling the busyness of the season, it’s easy to ignore or put-off our own needs. I mean all it takes is a quick google search and you get the statistics for depression, anxiety, panic, insomnia, and despair. DespairContinue reading “When Despair Hits”

The Other Side

It’s officially Christmas season. And no I’m not skipping Thanksgiving. That’s included. What I am doing is mashing the two together to promote the end of 2020. I’m considering bringing out the New Year decorations too. Let’s embrace the last few months of this god-awful year with kindness and grace and a lot of copingContinue reading “The Other Side”

On the topic of work

I gotta start by addressing this hiatus I’ve taken from writing. It wasn’t really my choice but it was influenced by my lack of enthusiasm. I’ve been trying to find the time and the energy but when I have one I never have the other. So this is me forcing myself to write, honestly. IContinue reading “On the topic of work”

Living in a Stressful Time

I’d sincerely like to apologize for my lack of posting and my lack of motivation to write. Life’s been kinda crazy for the past few weeks. Chadwick Boseman dying of cancer, the shooting of Jacob Blake, the civil unrest, the political divide, covid, old people on facebook trying to tell me to not wear aContinue reading “Living in a Stressful Time”

Angry Feelings

I got surgery to fix one of my feet last week. I’ve had the condition Plantar Fasciitis for about 3 or 4 years now and over those years I’ve gotten a bad growth of bunions on both my feet (yes I’m only 19). So I had surgery to repair my left foot. The friends thatContinue reading “Angry Feelings”

Drafting Motivation

Yes, it’s the NFL draft week. So far this is the most excited I’ve been since quarantine started. I happen to be a fan of one of the worst teams in the league and also one of the newest. The Jacksonville Jaguars. This draft will probably just lead us to another losing record but I’mContinue reading “Drafting Motivation”

Good Decisions for the Soul

Not quite chicken soup, is it? Yesterday I got a suggestion for an article about Billie Eilish and how she “can’t win” against her critics. It was about how she posted some pictures from her vacation in Hawaii and some featured her in a bikini (I mean, it’s Hawaii, come on.). People commented some prettyContinue reading “Good Decisions for the Soul”

Quiet in the Quarantine

Yes, I’m starting this blog in the middle of the COVID-19 quarantine. I have a lot of time on my hands. At two weeks in, I’ve read 4 books, watched 3 series on Netflix, done 2 puzzles, and colored in “calming” adult coloring books. I’ll probably buzz my hair or something soon, pull out myContinue reading “Quiet in the Quarantine”
