I’m Not Sure Why I Feel Compelled To Share When I’m Not Ready

I haven’t written anything in such a long time that I feel like if I even tried to begin writing, like I am now, it will end up becoming a large pile of crap that stares me in the face for years to come. Every damn day I will look back at this piece ofContinue reading “I’m Not Sure Why I Feel Compelled To Share When I’m Not Ready”

A Case Against Cheese

This story begins as most stories begin, sitting at a coffee shop, fiddling between the occasional notification on my iPhone, scrolling through Instagram feeds, and attempting to drink my coffee while it’s hot. Most of my stories begin with this same introduction, and yet, this one feels different. Why does it feel different you ask?Continue reading “A Case Against Cheese”

Why I’m So Over the Moon This Tuesday

…BECAUSE THIS WEEKEND I HIT OVER 150 SUBSCRIBERS and was just so blown away by all of the love and support that I have received on this platform since I first arrived here this past spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never imagined one day that I would spend so much time writing and sharing my thoughts online, butContinue reading “Why I’m So Over the Moon This Tuesday”

How Does One Make Friends As An Adult?

The other day, I was hanging out with a good friend and she told me, “I need to introduce you to my friend. You two are so alike, you are going to love each other!” This exact scenario has happened to me several times, and each and every time it’s usually correct. I do loveContinue reading “How Does One Make Friends As An Adult?”

The Friendship Issue

Hi ppl! How’s it going? Will you be my friend? No. That’s okay, I understand. Either way, I’m going to make October  Friendship Month because all my fake friends can ‘f’ off, it’s time to make way for the real ones in your life. The ride or dies, the go big or go home typeContinue reading “The Friendship Issue”

Shiitake Tofu & Whole Grains

I love take-out Chinese food. It’s by far my favorite thing to order, I’m always craving it, and I blame half of this love on watching too much SATC and my grandparents. However, I can honestly say, and I know that I will probably get some haters, but Austin doesn’t have good take-out, or ChineseContinue reading “Shiitake Tofu & Whole Grains”

It’s Beyoncé’s Birthday So Here Is Your Goodie Bag!

Can we just literally do a temperature check? Like, is it still 90 degrees here in Austin, Texas while clearly being Beyoncé’s Birthday, and like, September? I’m sorry, but this Californian is definitely not used to this weather. Also, like, what the hell is up with the severity of the rain here? I can’t. I’mContinue reading “It’s Beyoncé’s Birthday So Here Is Your Goodie Bag!”

Answering the Call

Welcome to September, The Purpose Issue After driving around to three coffee shops this morning, trying to find a seat at a table to “look pretentious,” as Carrie Bradshaw puts it, and pen the great American novel, I finally found a spot, right next to a charger, in the corner, beside an open window. IContinue reading “Answering the Call”

August is Officially the Worst Month Ever

If August taught me anything, it’s that the best laid plans of mice and men, oft’ go awry. Remember that old saying by Robert Burns you were forced to learn in Literature class in third grade? ‘No.’ Just me? August has taught me exactly that. As intentional as you want to be and as optimisticContinue reading “August is Officially the Worst Month Ever”

The ‘G’ Issue

On July 30th, 2018, I sat in front of my computer staring, once again, at a blank screen, until I finally got so bored I clicked through a few links and landed on The New York Times Magazine homepage—it’s featured article, How Goop’s Haters Made Gwyneth Paltrow’s Company Worth $250 Million. One click and several scrollsContinue reading “The ‘G’ Issue”

I Need to Talk About Eating Animals for a Minute or Two

I am reading a book right now called Eating Animals, which is sort of like an investigative memoir about the examination of vegetarianism, factory farming, and the food we eat by Jonathan Safron Foer. I was convinced by Natalie Portman to see the documentary about the book that she produced by the same name—however, muchContinue reading “I Need to Talk About Eating Animals for a Minute or Two”

Welcome to I’m Moving Month

I‘m Moving Month acts as sort of a double entendre, for the physical manifestation of packing my literal self up and moving 1,800 miles across the country to the very literal and figurative manifestation of movement, as it pertains to holistic living and exploration. The idea of I’m Moving Month came to me because IContinue reading “Welcome to I’m Moving Month”
