Dates & Cars

Last weekend, I bought a new car. Finally. And I do mean, a brand new car. It was terrifying and exhilarating. I had spent all winter praying that my car would make it, promising myself that 2018 would be the year to finally upgrade. But as it warmed up and spring finally sprung, I kept pushing it off. I casually researched and tried to learn … Continue reading Dates & Cars

Saying Hello, Saying Goodbye

I used to be the girl who prided herself on her ability to commit to relationships. Who would hang on forever to people, calling it commitment, love, being a true friend. In all honesty, I think a lot of it was more insecurity than those other qualities. Not saying that I don’t possess them, because I do think that I highly value the people in … Continue reading Saying Hello, Saying Goodbye

Bruised

Dating is such a frustratingly painful process. And maybe that’s just for me because I allow myself to feel completely, but even the most cordial of endings still leaves me sad and bruised. I’m so tired of being the girl for good times and casual conversations, and not the girl for getting serious with. I’m tired of feeling like it’s me, that I’m the one … Continue reading Bruised

Writer’s block

For the past several months, I’ve sat down at various times and pulled out the laptop, opened up my site and stared at a blank page for an hour, then meandered on to other social media in an effort to ignore the block in my head. I hate writer’s block. Mostly because my head will feel full (don’t laugh) and yet I can’t get anything out leaving … Continue reading Writer’s block

The never-ending body image war

This week has truly been a mind-bending, full-plate kind of week. Due to certain events that transpired last weekend, the topic of body image has been weighing heavily on my mind. I’ve written on this topic before, and of course, as a woman, it’s never far from my thoughts. What’s a bit different this time is the reason it’s on my mind was due to … Continue reading The never-ending body image war

The F Word: FEMINIST

Feminist. This word, this idea, this movement has really been plaguing my life recently. I’ve been trying to think of the first time I ever heard that word, and I can’t come up with anything before High School. I’m not even sure if it was that early. Actually, I think the first time I encountered it was watching 10 Things I Hate About You. I … Continue reading The F Word: FEMINIST

Stop….Hammer time! (Or my time, same thing)

Whole30 is winding down, and I have to say that it’s not been too bad. It really wasn’t until halfway through this past week that I felt really ready to be done with it. I feel like I’ve really learned a lot more this time around, but this time it’s been less tangible things like “oh, milk makes my tummy hurt” or “I do like … Continue reading Stop….Hammer time!
