It’s a process

My biggest struggle is my head – in more ways than one.

My head has always had a mind of it’s own, ironically. It thinks up crazy dreams and sometimes lies and a lot of times really great, creative things, but ever since its inception it’s just been running in every direction.

I’ve struggled inside my head since I was little. When the tags on my shirts had to be cut out, so they wouldn’t tickle against my skin. When we had to buy seamless socks, so I’d stop throwing a tantrum in public places, ripping off my Mary Janes to perfectly align the line of stitching running across my toes. read more

How I Got Here

I have three drafts of this post. The one where I explain where in the world I’ve been, but also try not to sound too apologetic, as taking time for yourself is something I wholly endorse these days. I can’t even refer to this as an “I’m back!” post because then I get really philosophical about everything: Am I back? Did I really go anywhere? If it’s my blog and I post on it as a hobby, then does it really matter how these posts are timestamped?

Speaking of which, I don’t know what happened to the dates atop my blog posts. They disappeared like the lack of motivation I had for keeping up with my site, but I can tell you with scout’s honor that the last time I posted was in April. I was doing pretty good then, and felt like posting, but without really going into the whole story of how I came to be where I am now, it just seems so menial to report on weekend activities and travel plans. read more

Weekend In Our Life

There’s only 4 weekends left until it’s the week of my graduation and I’m definitely feeling all of the emotions. Happy, sad, confused, terrified, etc. I think it’s easy for us almost-grads to feel this way, and I think the cure is: doing things that make you happy and not freaking out too much about the future. Sounds simple, yeah?

I’m really trying to put this into practice on the weekends.┬áSaturday and Sunday I’m trying to let go – of rigidity, of doubt for the future, etc. Just enjoy the weekend ya know? read more

2018 Reading List So Far

Happy Wednesday!

How is everyone’s week going so far?

I feel like I squeeze every last drop out of my week. My calendar is packed, but a lot of the things that I’m checking off the list are making me feel super productive. Normally I would groan about Tuesday’s group project presentation, but that is one step closer to NO MORE GROUP PROJECT PRESENTATIONS. Woo-hoo! And Wednesday I have a coffee date with a friend, which I mentioned is a huge priority in this post. (Girl-time/friend time is my favorite thing and it’s great for mental health.) read more
