Daring Greatly

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who […]

A Spark? The Beginning of Passion?

In my touch of bold nature I have a history of being straightforward with my romantic intentions. I love the idea of meeting someone, saying you’re interested and then going on a date. Easy as 1,2,3. Just that happened a few weeks ago. I worked an event midsummer and met a guy named Stan (for […]

Fuck Yes or No

A friend shared with me this great article by Mark Manson , but if you allow it, this article extends beyond sexuality and even dating but to friendships and work.  I aim to stick to original content, but found this truly inspiring with great points. More vulgar than usual posts, but let’s all say, “Fuck […]

You Believed

We want to believe that if we believe in people, if we believe in ourselves, life rewards us. But the honest to goodness truth is you’re left sometimes feeling like an outsider on your own life and desires. Desire sometimes leaves you heartbroken. If you believe in believing one more time, this can be the […]

Wheels Up!

As the plane sat on the Jacksonville airport runway to NYC, I took everything out of my lap and braced myself for what was to come. One my favorite things about flying is the moment where you’re taking off and for a couple of seconds, the front wheel is in the air and the back […]

Whether dating, going to professional events, or the day-to-day, A Touch of Bold makes life even better. Welcome to a new era for my blog as I transition from Finding Roots to A Touch of Bold! When Finding Roots first started I was at the beginning of my freshman year of college, not out of […]

2013, Which Way?

Every new year, every school semester, I imagine all these goals and resolutions that will come true. I’ll be in better shape. I’ll make moves career wise. I’ll be dating this great significant other. This year though, I don’t have those goals. I feel like I’m on the brink of something big I can’t quite […]

I Haven’t Seen You Since Graduation. . .

This winter break in Pensacola I have had the privilege of seeing many of the people I graduated with and never talk to at a mini reunion party. At first I felt awkward about hanging out with so many people I never deeply talked to or hung out with but as the familiar faces rolled […]

Compromising and Compromising?

We consider ourselves to be independent beings. Post job: “I’m fine. Now I’m able to hang out with y’all more” Perpetually single: “I have so much free time and it’s great! I get to do what I want to do. I’m able to sit in my bed and get crumbs everywhere.” However, the hope of […]

The Outs Is One Of The Reasons Why It’s Good To Be Gay Right Now

When you’re a part of any minority, it many times feels like there are few things that accurately portray your experiences, thoughts and questions of situations in the future. I may not live in NYC and have not been. . . yet. . . but I found The Outs to be very relatable. Over the […]
