I began the morning of Thanksgiving with an awesome champagne hangover, (they should put a warning on the bottle), and, to be completely honest, a feeling of self-pity. Why? Because I am spending Thanksgiving away from my family for the fifth year in a row, with no turkey and no pumpkin pie with Cool Whip- that’sContinue reading “Give Thanks”

One. Big. Excuse.
I often reflect on my life. I reflect on my choices, decisions, my experiences. I reflect on my conversations and my readings. I reflect through writing, which you then see posted to my social mediums because I figure why not share it, right? I’ve learned a lot about myself and life through these reflections. I’veContinue reading “One. Big. Excuse.”
It has recently come to my attention that I had become ungrateful for the place that I lived. Having moved from the beautiful mountains of Montana (we just got electricity, didn’t you hear?), Reno surprisingly stole my heart over the first four years of my time here. The community, the school and the area haveContinue reading “Thanks, Reno”
Often, I think we look over just how much our words matter. It’s amazing how one thing that one person says can just stick with you. You mull it over in your brain, whether it’s inspiring, thought-provoking, or just a nice thought (and in some unfortunate cases, not so nice). The comment made may notContinue reading “One Thing”
Idling vs. Gratitude
Idling: (verb) to move aimlessly or lazily. Lately when people ask me how I’m doing, I answer, “good you know, just kind of ‘bla.’” “What do you mean ‘bla?’” “You know, I feel as though I’m sort of idling through life, ready for the next thing, just trying to get through my obligations now.” ForContinue reading “Idling vs. Gratitude”
Find your niche. Follow your passion. Okay. Know what you want, and go after it. Okay. For awhile there I did, and I was… I do, and I am- I don’t know. I have recently become one of the most driven people I know, sure of exactly what I want to do and where IContinue reading “One Niche”
One. Complicated. Question.
What do you want to do when you graduate? Believe me, you don’t want to know. This question comes up more often than not. Whether it’s from your peers that are scouting out what everyone around them is doing (what’s up), or from that one distant relative at Thanksgiving- this question will be asked withinContinue reading “One. Complicated. Question.”
Do you think people will think that was dumb? Do you think they’ll think I’m too career-obsessed? That I’m trying too hard? What if they think I’m pretentious? That I’m being serious? What if they think I’m wrong? Um, well, so what if they do? The amount of time spent simply worrying about what others think andContinue reading “Others”
We are hard on ourselves. We have things we want to work on. Things we don’t think we handle as well as we should, things we want to change. Things we see others doing well, things that we don’t see in ourselves. We all have these things. These things that make us feel as thoughContinue reading “These Things”
This has been a topic I have wanted to write about for a while now. I recently started a blog, and I have an ever-expanding list of topics and thoughts that I want to write about. Some of them I am ready to write about, others not so much—I still need to learn the lessonContinue reading “Continuously Amazed”
