Okay... I'm going to drop a truth-bomb or two in here, so #sorrynotsorry for the upcoming post, but it's that time of year ... just before our nice theoretically relaxing summer, when we're supposed to be doing our spring cleaning. Out with the old, in with the new, war on the dust bunnies, and all… Continue reading 205. How to… do a little bit of spring cleaning.
There's something that can be said about simply observing things sometimes. Or observing people. If you spend some time watching the world around you, you'll learn more about it. You'll be able to figure out how it breathes, what makes its heart tick. You'll know it more intimately. The same is true for people. You… Continue reading 197. How to… look beyond what you see with your eyes.
Okay, so... plot twist: I've had a song stuck in my head for days, so you guys get to deal with nova!brain some more. I'd say sorry, but... I'm not. This is your reminder. Show the people that you love just how much you love them every chance you get. Some of the people I've… Continue reading 195. How to… draw down the moon.
I would be lying if I said the last couple days I wasn't some big huge ball of anxiety and stress and just... general blah-ness. But I think, if I'm honest, one of the things that helped me keep it together the most was that the people closest to me knew what was going on.… Continue reading 193. Pro-tip: Tie it all together with a smile…? Nope. Let that stuff out.
Okay, y'all. So, the last couple days, I've been in a mood. I attribute this to several factors, really: the looming date of the anniversary of gran's death and my upset that the pandemic allowed us zero room to be with her for obvious reasons, school, work, school associated with work which is not to… Continue reading 189. How to… enjoy the great outdoors (sort of).
If we were all put on this earth to do nothing more than grow old, pay bills, and work every day until we die, it wouldn't be a very exciting life, would it? I have long held the belief that we were put here for something far greater than that. Some of you may attribute… Continue reading 170. How to… make your mark.
We've all heard that one, haven't we? I think in my case, I hear it more as a sarcastic remark than anything, but it has some merits beyond that if you really give it a moment of thought. Pictures are our way of documenting things. They are, at their base, nothing more than a pictographic… Continue reading 158. If you take a picture, it’ll last longer…
The summer before I started high school, my dad got news that we were going to be stationed in Okinawa, Japan. So that May or June, we packed up our entire lives and got on a plane in the United States and got off the plan in Japan. And you know... at first, living there… Continue reading 153. You can be yourself and still find your people…
If you're one of those people who finds it super easy to admit when they need help, I commend you. This sounds like an easy concept, but it's not as easy for some of us to execute. It's difficult to balance the need for one's independence with the idea that sometimes, you have to throw… Continue reading 138. Balance is harder to find than you might expect, and even harder to maintain…
Let's be honest, guys - sometimes, the world is a weird cruel place that likes to kick us when we're down.
