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 […]

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 […]

Wake-Up Call Wednesday: Normal Gets You Nowhere

This morning I landed in Chicago with below freezing temperatures embracing me, big name PR agencies filling the city, skyscrapers towering and people surrounding me. It’s easy to immediately feel lost and small, especially when a drive through Michigan Avenue will remind you of all the things you can’t afford. I wonder how did some […]

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. […]

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 […]

Timeless Date!

This past Valentine’s Day, I wasn’t sad about not having a Valentine, but at the fact I couldn’t be creative for someone. I love surprises and being able to come up with ideas. Valentine’s Day may be gone, but a great date idea is timeless. Along with asking my friends about Bold First Moves, I also […]

Booty Call – Part One

I sat in my bed enjoying the feeling of Friday, freedom from the semester and soon close of 2012. It was after 10 p.m. when my phone vibrated and I saw his name. I thought maybe he pocket dialed me. He asked what I was doing, and I replied with the customary nothing. He asked […]

Christopher Robin Said to Pooh

Loyalty can be a lonely place. Loyalty to your work, and your friendships, and mainly to yourself leads to confusion. The constant struggle to do what is right towards everyone along with yourself eventually leads to choices. Choices changing the complacent present. Even though you know this choice is correct, the future looks hazy and […]

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 […]

All About the Possibilities

2012 is coming to a close and New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching! I plan on spending NYE with some of the best friends I could ask for, but I also can’t help wonder about the dating I’ve experienced this fall. As I looked on Facebook and Instagram this Christmas and saw the gifts (expensive […]
