The good and the bad — it’s all part of life

The winter is going by so fast. We are already more than half way through February and while I am shocked, I can’t be mad. Each day that passes means we are getting closer to summer! And if you know me, you know I thrive during that season. With how fast time is going by,… Continue reading The good and the bad — it’s all part of life

Why Les Misérables is a reminder to never give up hope

A few years ago I wrote about the most perfect summer day:  I woke up and water skied with my dad and grandfather in the morning, and then ended up in New York City in the afternoon to see Les Misérables on Broadway with my grandfather and grandma. Les Misérables is easily one of my favorite Broadway shows. It’s simply… Continue reading Why Les Misérables is a reminder to never give up hope

How to plan and achieve realistic New Year’s resolutions

In my last blog post, we spoke about reasons behind making New Year’s resolutions. This time around, I want to touch on how to make New Year’s resolutions that we can actually achieve (which I also spoke about in my latest YouTube video). Yes, I did say that I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions.… Continue reading How to plan and achieve realistic New Year’s resolutions

My First Time Making New Year’s Resolutions

I’ve never been one to make a New Year’s resolution(s). I think it’s just too much pressure to put on yourself with the possibility of being disappointed at the end of the year. And who wants to end a year by being mad at themselves for not reaching whatever far-fetched goal they planned? I definitely… Continue reading My First Time Making New Year’s Resolutions

2020: A Life Changing Year

It took me until the day before New Year’s Eve to get my thoughts together. Well, they’re not together, but I am hoping by the end of this post they will be.  Another year has gone by. Wow. And what a year it’s been.  Last year at this time, I had just left my first… Continue reading 2020: A Life Changing Year

CA to NJ: The emotion I was not expecting to visit

I knew I would be emotional coming to Los Angeles just to leave again (and for good), but I didn’t expect to care about leaving my apartment and friends so much. When I landed at LAX, I was greeted by my always cheerful roommate, and we met up with our coworker for dinner and drinks… Continue reading CA to NJ: The emotion I was not expecting to visit

CA to NJ: To take the best play or the smart play?

Taking chances makes me nervous. It makes a lot of us feel uneasy. Why choose something that might not work out over something stable? Why risk anything? The only answer that I have is life is full of risks, and that’s part of the thrill. Some work out, and some don’t, but as long as… Continue reading CA to NJ: To take the best play or the smart play?

I was really intrigued to hear the former Disney star’s take on relationships, both intimate and platonic.

What is social media activism and why it’s not just “trendy”

Social media has blossomed from a platform that was once used as a new, exciting way to say “hello” into a far-reaching internet landscape. The sharing of the political, economic and social happenings occurring in your own environment or that of others hoping to make a positive impact can be called social media activism, cyberactivism or digital… Continue reading What is social media activism and why it’s not just “trendy”

Americans Don’t Use Their Vacation Days, but They Should

Summer isn’t over yet and I’m already worrying about how I am going to occupy myself during winter and the slight seasonal depression that comes with it. My first thought is to escape to a warm island. Some people are busy planning their winter tropical getaways; however, many are not. They’re not going anywhere, even… Continue reading Americans Don’t Use Their Vacation Days, but They Should
