Back to the Scene

As I return back from my hometown I realize that like a great movie or novel, we have to return to the scene where everything happened to mend broken fences and open the path for new stories. Our hometown is where our heart and soul begins. It’s where the soul goes back to develop and […]

#Unapologetic

When we make decisions and are even considering options, people will always try to make us feel bad about what we want. This includes the people we care about most, along with people we don’t know so well. We’re judged for how we let certain things play out and for how we want them to. […]

Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen

Over the past week I hung out with PR mentees through FPRA. Talking with them reminds me of my PR mentor through FPRA and the times we had. One day when I was a freshman she shared the “Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen” song with me. Now I share it with you all. Add a […]

Booty Call – Part Two

The last part to Booty Call – Part One He says, “She likes me but?” I say no but. He asks me who I am texting and I lie. We change the subject. I’m texting again, and he asks me whom I’m texting. I say her name and he wants to see my phone. I […]

“It’s Just Chicken”

In the Tallahassee, and more specifically Florida State University area, the Chik-fil-a debate has been ongoing for the last year with protest of allowing this establishment on campus. While I do think this is a complicated matter, what boils my blood is hearing from people “It’s just chicken” or “It’s delicious so what does it matter.” […]

My Lips Were Shaking

A year ago I was definitely in my end of freshman year mentality. I didn’t see myself as cute. I didn’t understand the public relations world well and I was lost in certain ways. I didn’t even make it to the Live with Kelly semi-finalist level and it hurt. No matter how farfetched something is, […]

Three Doors

I feel like I was standing in a room representing my future. There were three doors each representing progress with someone. Guys, or well men for all intents and purposes, stand behind them all. Behind the first was the ever so popular one from my post “He Has a Crush on You.” I could pull open […]

Live with Kelly and Jarryd

“This familiar feeling radiates throughout my body but I feel it most in my core.  It’s desire! Forget my summer shows, fixation on the future and fanciful crushes, this sensation matters most. Determination and vision seem to be key in this moment.” My thoughts earlier this week ———————————————————————- Too often we think to ourselves, at […]
