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 […]

Turning the PR Page

For the first time I had to seriously question if it was time for a change to my young professional career. During my trip to Chicago last month it was time to decide what was next after graduation. I had to ask myself do I want to go full-time at the PR agency where I […]

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 […]

Be. More. Invested.

On the brink of graduation and truly for the last year I’ve noticed a lack of investment in people when it comes to our platonic relationships and potential romances. I’m not naïve or lacking the idea that all types of relationships are two-way. Too often people want you to meet them three-quarters down the road. […]

Cheers to A New Story

Cheers. Cheers to the late nights dancing to the beat and offbeat with friends. Cheers to the tears shared with friends over moments we’ve grown from. Cheers to the dates we smile about and the ones we remember with dread. Cheers to the moments we wanted to quit and the successes we didn’t imagine possible. […]

Flirty Friday 12/27/13

“Flirty Friday” – Friday dating and relationship inspiration as you head into the weekend.  Say goodbye, because crushes are fleeting, and a crush is defined as an intense but short-lived infatuation. Say goodbye, because you’re surrendering. And surrendering is not your head down to the earth, but head and arms raised to the skies of […]

Background Music

I remember a few years ago I was in California and while wandering Palm Springs I went into this random shop. This guy told me my master astrology reading. He said in 2013 or 2014 I would meet the love of my life and in 2017 I would start my own business. I don’t know […]

Three Years! My Coming Out Anniversary

This month I’ve reached my three year anniversary of being out of the closet as gay and three years feels like a truly special place personally. For the past few months the thought often toyed around my mind of how I’ve never talked to my maternal grandmother about being gay, even though I’ve had conversations with […]

Being 20-something via Thought Catalog

“If a brochure did exist, it would probably tell us this: You will make mistakes and do stupid things for as long as you live. What matters is how we use these to make us better people. At the same time, we’re young enough how to right those things that we did wrong—and to decide […]
