Quarterly Goal Reflection

I'd like to say this was the first time I've set goals and achieved them all, but sadly, I only achieved a couple. Unfortunately, I didn't achieve any of my writing goals. However, I did make serious progress on my outline. I was looking for my post where I shared my quarterly goals for last… Continue reading Quarterly Goal Reflection

Early vs. Late Twenties

If there's anything I could tell my 21 year-old self now as a 26 year-old, I would tell her life gets way better in your late twenties.  Minus paying for your own health insurance and being enslaved to your student loans.  That will always feel like a root canal without the drugs.

How To Know If Your Love Still Finds You Attractive

Here's the problem if you came to this post in hopes of learning about ways to read your significant other's mind— it's impossible! I hate to admit that this blog has been inspired by a conversation John and I had tonight, and that sadly, I caught myself being a stereotypical female.  You know, those women men… Continue reading How To Know If Your Love Still Finds You Attractive
