Drum roll please... *awkwardly clears throat* Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, Here is my 2018 gratitude list:
After years of struggling with my own anxiety disorder I have come to a conclusion: self-care is a vital part of my life. In my educational journey, each class has ended with a chapter on self-care, and if I’m being honest, I usually didn’t read it. My classmates and I would scoff at the thought… Continue reading Let’s talk about self-care
My birthday was just short of two weeks ago (belated presents will be accepted) and I am now a year older, but probably not wiser.

My ideals and expectations of this world are unattainable, yet I continue to strive for more. How can we… Continue reading I can argue no longer
For me, weight loss has been a road to loneliness, and what makes it worse is the fact that I was on that road to begin with.
If you have been following my updates at all, then you know that I have been doing pretty well with my weight loss. In fact, I recently got food poisoning and dropped 4 pounds in a day and a half. BOOM! Following that sickness, I went on a trip with my youth group, and didn’t… Continue reading Call in the public shamers, I fell off the wagon.
