Who We Are. How We Feel. How We React.

In elementary school we displayed so much of who we are, how we feel and how we react in different situation. That is why our families worried for us, but also was excited to see how we would turn out. I wanted teachers to affirm that my hard work was noticed, not for validation as […]

Confident Vulnerability

Sometimes the doubt and sentiment for the past floods in, and I immediately think about what my morning or work day or weekend would be like if I were back in Tallahassee and not a new city. The nostalgia and desire for what is comfortable overcomes me. Then I stop in the middle of this […]

Flirty Friday: Learn A Secret

“Flirty Friday” – Friday dating and relationship inspiration as you head into the weekend. “I know something about loving people who aren’t smart enough to want to be loved back.

Compromised

As another year passes by I see how conversations about dating with friends don’t only revolve around the intricacies of asking someone out or the friend zone. It also revolves around the delicateness of hooking up and friends with benefits. Asking someone out, the friend zone and friends with benefits all have their own struggles, […]

The Friday Five

People will naysay or try to warn you about how difficult it is to pursue opportunities. But above all, persevere and act with bold intentions. Don’t let others’ experiences define your journey. “It doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from. The ability to triumph begins with you. Always.” – Oprah _______________________________________________________ I hope you […]

Too Tired, Too Sleepy Or Hungover

She never wants someone to remember her as the one who was too tired, too sleepy or even hungover. Last night Miss America 2014 Nina Davulri mentioned being told some people will only meet Miss America once in their life. Nina realized she would be that Miss America for some people. We only meet some people once in […]

Flirty Friday: “I Promise It Won’t Be Awkward”

I visited with the ladies of Skirt PR this morning when Lauren Berg Donovan, the agency vice president, talked about networking. In PR it’s important to foster relationships, but it can be rough starting out. One of her comments reminded me of dating: It’s a lot of, “Hey, do you want to want to grab […]

Wake-Up Call Wednesday: Dating & Facebook

Wake-Up Call Wednesday! We never like someone more romantically by friending them on Facebook. We start making assumptions and perceiving them in a different way than organically getting to know them. I embrace holding off from friending them until we’ve reached solid ground. We may never be on solid ground, but at least they aren’t […]
