One Word Challenge: Guilty

10982207_794405137262870_7253024228951136625_nOne of the reasons I live a somewhat balanced, happy life is because I am selfish when I need to be. What I mean by that is, I never feel guilty when I need to do something for me or my life. Sometimes people feel guilty when doing something that may cause an inch of annoyance, frustration, or sadness in someone else. It’s great if you want to make everyone happy and not cause any problems for them, but what about you?

I do care for others. I’d do anything for my friends. But there should be a line between Continue reading

One Word Challenge: Rare

One Word Challenge: Rare

I’m going to talk about two little things in this post because I can’t really think of one big thing. Rare moments of pure happiness and rare moments of complete relaxation. I think it is so important to realize these things are rare. When we realize that, we appreciate it more and take full advantage of these moments. I experienced both of those this past weekend, so I guess I could say I had a pretty rare weekend, which is now a long weekend because SNOW DAY.

Rare moments of pure happiness

Being happy isn’t rare. Many things make people happy. But when we experience Continue reading

One Word Challenge: Strange (& Maybe & Pieces)

I was talking to one of my new friends from Journalism, Austin today while deciding on a topic to do for this blog. We got into talking about how strange it is that if one thing didn’t happen, I wouldn’t be where I am now. If one thing didn’t happen, I wouldn’t know the people I know now. If I didn’t know some of the people I know now, my life would be so different. This concept is so strange to me and scary in a way, but yet so fascinating.

If I didn’t post a certain post in a Facebook group in August of 2013, I wouldn’t be talking Continue reading

More abled than disabled

So I have had a few people ask me to blog post about my disability. What is it? Was I born with it? How does it affect me? What can I do and what can’t I do? Does it bother me? I really do not mind getting ask these questions. I love educating people on it. I would rather them ask than not ask. It’s common that people make false assumptions, so I am very open and honest to try and avoid that.

When I was two years old, I was diagnosed with Cancer. I went through chemotherapy and Continue reading

2015 Is Finally Here!

2015 is finally here. 2014 was so long and draining. I think it’s safe to say it’s been one of the shittiest years ever, with a few exceptional moments.

I think it’s important to take a look back at the good times and achievements, no matter if Continue reading

Next Stop: Journalism

I am about to start Journalism in January and I am very excited about it. I’ve always known that I’m a good writer and been known to be a good writer. I remember sending emails to my aunt and it would have near perfect grammar and spelling (I don’t know how good I’ll be in this because I’m feeling lazy these days). It would be very well written. I would use a lot of descriptive words and it sounded like a narration of a movie, even though it was just supposed to be a simple description of my day. It just came naturally too. She always said I should go into Journalism. I always shook my head because I hated the idea. Truth was; I HATED writing, even though I was good at it.

I started the Child and Youth Worker program at my local college September 2013. I had, and will Continue reading

Mistakes don’t define us.

I’ve made so many mistakes in my life. Hell, I make them everyday. People make mistakes such as putting off homework, forgetting something, saying wrong things/misinterpretation, wearing really uncomfortable clothes, sending something to someone by accident, yelling at someone, creeping an ex on social media and regretting it, putting to much on a credit card. Or something big like falling back into old habits/addictions, doing something stupid while drunk, breaking a promise. The lists of things can go on and on. I’ve done everything on that list but oh well. I learned my lesson.

Mistakes are mistakes. We often beat ourselves up for making them. Why though? Mistakes are Continue reading
