13 Things // January

ONE // I’m really starting to get into the swing of things, but not just with school, work, and night class. I just feel some kind of swing into the rhytym of life if that makes sense? I’m still not 100% with my head, but my spirits are SO much better than they were a couple months ago. I’ve gotten better at pain management and keeping my head up (literally and figuratively). I feel a really light energy about me now (most days) and I’m just feeling hopeful and happier. My schedule is CRAZY. I am either at work, at school, driving to one of those places, walking to one of those places, making food for those places, or sleeping so I can go to those places, but I feel so thankful for my ability to do all of that. I can thank journaling, deepening my relationship with God, increasing my self awareness, being around positive people (like my sweet boy Cam and my coworkers), and treating my body with love (good food + exercise + other wellness essentials) for that! read more

My Healthy Office Habits

I started my new internship January 8th and I love it!!

I think there’s something about working in an office that makes you re-think your habits. Am I on my phone too much? Do I have good posture? Do I drink enough water? Can I bring something else for lunch instead of a chopped salad?

This is my second internship, so somewhat like having New Years resolutions, I have some “new job resolutions”. I really want to make sure I am good with drinking water here, that I wear my glasses while on the computer (it helps my headaches), and that I get creative with snacks/meals that I pack for work. read more

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
