What I Learned: A Year in Korea

Removing myself from everything I built, always knew, and defined myself as, to live abroad, doing something I’ve never done, taught me a few things that has made me more grounded than I’ve ever been. They are things that I really wish everyone gets a chance to realize in this lifetime. Because life is too […]

Letting Go, Trusting, & Being Happy.

Happy first month to me officially moving to South Korea.   “Nothing lasts forever.” Not the good, nor the bad, and I absolutely know that. And so the most beautiful thing, is being awake and alive enough to know that although I don’t know how long it’ll last, I know very well, with all my […]

The Most Expensive Thing You Can Afford Post Grad & How It Can Make You Richer.

So, I quit my job today. Normally, people would wait this out and blog about it after successfully launching a million dollar gig overnight of some sort. I don’t have any of that.

When you can’t find the answers to why and how something happened, step back and pretend that it was all apart of a higher power’s plan, and make sense of what that story may be like a Disney movie or a Kdrama we’d see. Because most of our pain, is from the thought that this […]

When You Finally Love Yourself at 22

Not sure if I’m the only one, but I’m pretty sure I’ve spent all my life trying to construct a reflection of myself, understand where it fit in the world, and actually love it. From a young age, I’ve always known I was never happy with myself. I learned it from many places. From the […]

I owe no one nothing: Not my status of virginity.

For the first time in a long time, I felt cornered, truly lost on where to go, not knowing what to do to get past this moment in time, with my heart utterly crushed again. I called out for you. As you are making the day of someone else, do you know I am constantly […]

If I Was the One to Leave First

Sometimes, when someone you love leaves, trauma makes you only remember the good things. The perfect, rose-colored glass picture. And somehow the blame can only hover over you. But it’s never that way (in most cases). It always takes two. Sometimes, we have to be honest with ourselves. After the storm has calmed, to do our best […]
