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 being,…

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.

Writing Your Hardships as a Story that was Meant to Be.

When They’re Putting Their Heart in Your Hands Again.

One that prompts permanent scars to heal from. One that will bring many outside opinions & create sides for people to pick and choose from.…

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…
