It’s no secret that with our recent generations that there has been a significant increase in people having anxiety. The constant intake of social media and comparing ourselves to other’s highlight reels on the internet certainly doesn’t help that. But the fact that we grew up in a time where technology changed and advanced so quickly and so many other factors of modern society, it’s no wonder that so many of us are suffering from anxiety.
I felt unmotivated and uninspired by everything I was writing and the pictures I was taking – it all just seemed boring to me. So, I took an unintentional break to recharge and gain a new perspective. I’ve also been incredibly busy with college and work so writing began to feel like a chore and I was not willing to put out content that feels forced or I’m not happy with.
There is an incredible misconception about what being a feminist means. It’s all too often thought of as being a dirty word or a man-hating agenda – all which are far from the truth. Simply put, being a feminist is the equality among the sexes socially, politically, legally, and economically.
I never used to be big into the law of attraction, or things like actually writing down my goals. But more than half of my new year’s goals involved getting closer to my dream life, and whatever I was doing in the past just wasn’t cutting it; I knew I had to try different methods.
There’s something nice about being up early and knowing that half the world isn’t even out of bed yet. When I was in high school, I hated the mornings and would cut it extremely close when it came to running for the bus – especially my senior year. Now that I’ve been in college for almost two years now, I have grown to like the mornings especially when I don’t have class until the afternoon.
I used to like to pretend that I’m not super into Valentine’s Day because, on one hand, I do believe you should show your love for the people in your life every day. But, on the other hand, I’m an ‘extra’ kind of person and, honestly, I love days where I can shower people with my love and appreciation for them.
Something that has really peaked my interest in the last couple months is why I am the way that I am. I know some of the aspects to that question lie in my anxiety, but there were just somethings about myself that I couldn’t explain to people or even myself.
I don’t know about any of you, but I had such weird week mentally. I mean it’s probably because January seems to be lasting FOREVER, it cold, and I’m getting really sick of chipping away ice on my car almost every morning.
I was nominated by my friend, Mal over at Maloreads, for the Sunshine Blogger Award! This is such a fun way to network and make great friends in the blogging community and I’m so flattered that she even thought to add me to her list! I have never done one of these, so bear with me here. You can also find Mal on Twitter and Instagram.
The deep winter is finally here and, although I love winter, January always feels like the longest month. It’s cold, dark, and you’re never really sure what’s going on. Plus, you’re coming off the last two months of holiday hype and realizing you have no money and a whole bunch of things to do that you put off because of the holidays.
As I’m sitting here typing this post there are flurries outside my window…in mid-March. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so over it and ready to for flowers to start growing, windows open, and wearing cute spring outfits again. It feels like the winter is never ending! Regardless, I’m determined to make it feel like spring as much as I can until the weather catches on.
The 12 Days of Christmas is here, and I’m pretty excited about it. Christmas/wintertime has always been my favorite time of the year.
The bitterly, cold season of winter weather is finally upon Chicago. I actually prefer colder weather over the hotter weather, so it's no secret that winter and fall are my favorite seasons, and in my opinion, are the best seasons for clothes because they're cute, comfortable, and cozy - and unfortunately expensive.
I feel like it has barely been November, and Thanksgiving is already next week. This holiday has always been one of my favorites because it's two of the best things in my life: family and food.
There are a lot of things that I have an immense love for in this life, but three of them are clothes, country music, and concerts.
Balancing college and finances is hard, but it doesn't always have to be.
