30 Day Challenge: Continued

I’m not sure what day I would call this. I guess based on posts it would be day 4, but I did do all that physical labor from moving to a new apartment on the third floor. But, let’s err on the side of doing more work than less and call it DAY 4. I…

Poisonous People

Everyone has them in their lives: the people who just create drama, anxiety, hurt, mild or extreme irritation, and so on in your existence.

30 Day Challenge: Paused

Alright, I’ve been off my game the last couple of days. I missed days 4 and 5 and then this weekend was supposed to be “active rest” days. But I have a good reason, well an okay reason. I’ve been balancing packing up my entire apartment, the second week of school (which really means the…

Top Ten

For the last couple of years, my oldest sister has been getting on me about making my “top ten.” What is that, you ask? Well a top ten is your list of non-negotiables/must-haves that you’d look for in your future husband (or wife). I’ve kind of skirted around making one since she first mentioned it…

Who moved my kale chips?

Over winter break I visited my oldest sister in Pittsburgh. We were deciding what to make for dinner–she wanted to make a chicken noodle soup from scratch because a couple of people in the house were sick. But there were no veggies to go with it, and chicken broth alone isn’t enough to make someone…
