Weekends in Cypress

Around Christmastime, I noticed a change in my mood that just wasn’t right.

I was really irritable. Grouchy. Grumpy. Ba humbug. Tired. Emotionally drained. It had been (then) 3 months (now 4) of dealing with migraines and the stress that comes from not being healthy, and it was really taking a toll on my mood. Plus, I thought I’d be better by the time the holidays rolled around, so that just added onto the negative energy because it was “CHRISTMASTIME DANG IT AND I WASN’T BETTER!” read more

How To Read More This Year

I’ve always been a big reader – it’s just something that I love to do.

In 2018 and for turning 22, I really want to make it a priority to be on my phone less. Like I’ve mentioned, I’d like to think I’m pretty good at this. A few months ago, I deleted my Snapchat. (So if you’ve been sending me dog filter selfies – I’m not being rude by not responding, I am simply not getting them!) I also deleted the Twitter app from my phone, but I still have my account. Cameron likes to DM me funny tweets and videos via Twitter, but now he just remembers to show them to me when we’re together. It’s almost like having a special inbox just for us. And my new blog posts post to Twitter, so those of you that are avid users can see new posts that way if you wish. read more

I’m 22 Today. Here’s What I Have To Say.

Today, I am 22.

But I’m not writing this today. (Thursday.) No. I am writing this on Tuesday before work while watching Gossip Girl for the 80 millionth time. Now I just pick my favorite episodes according to my mood. I’m wishing it was warmer and sunny, so I’m somewhere in the very beginning of season 2 where the gang is stirring up drama in the Hamptons and Blair wears that adorable green and white mini dress that reminds me of my mother’s old comforter in the best possible way. read more

Somewhat of a 2017 Recap + What’s To Come

I don’t think I could recap 2017 if I tried.

Just yesterday, Cam and I found ourselves wandering around the same Barnes and Noble we came to to celebrate my birthday almost a year ago. Yes, for my 21st birthday I wanted nothing more than to ring it in by picking out a few new novels and a journal or two.

“I can’t believe it’s been a year,” I said as we exited the bookstore and passed the Tex Mex joint where I enjoyed (drank half) of my first legal mojito.

“It feels like it’s been longer,” Cam said. read more
