Someone to Build With, Not For…

I’m coming into the stage of my life where everyone I’ve grown up with is kind of coming into their own. They are graduating school, starting their careers, and some of them are actually getting married and starting a family. Even though I may not talk to any of these people much, or at all,…

Year: 2016 Adventure: 5

What’s life without spontaneous adventures? This week I had the pleasure of having both Thursday and Friday off of work. There’s been a couple weeks recently that I’ve had two days off in a row, but I never do anything special with them. I usually spend them sleeping in, going for a walk or run,…

It’s Never Too Late to be Brand New 

The most comforting thing about the world that we live in, is that you can decide at any time that you’re not happy with where you are, who you’re with, or what you’re doing, and you can change it. Literally nothing is permanent in this life and as much as we want to say it’s…

Year: 2016 Adventure: 4

The weekend I’ve been waiting for since October has finally came and went, and let me tell you, it was well worth it. Stagecoach 2016 was full of good company, good drinks, and of course good music.  Six friends and myself decided to stay in a three bedroom condo that we found on Airbnb in…

The Real Squad Goals 

I’ve had a new found appreciation for my friends lately. Of course I’ve always loved and appreciated them, but the bond we have is so much stronger these days and I know I’ve found my lifelong people. I know that they are always going to be there to cry with me at my darkest times,…

Cheers to Twenty-Fun

So obviously, I’ve been a little MIA from my blog recently, but my life has been just a little bit busy since my birthday. I just turned 21 on March 6th and I’ve been living it up since then, and between going out and work and trying to get enough sleep, my writing has unfortunately…

Shall We Rant? 

I don’t know if I’ve just been extra cranky lately, but I have found oh many things that bother me in the last couple weeks. I’ve had so many rants going on in my head, that I thought, why not write them down and send them out? I’m sure someone else out there has had…

A Little Trust Can Go A Long Way 

As I had mentioned in my last post, Allyson and I ventured into the depths of Los Angeles last weekend to be a little touristy. LA is famous for its one way streets and parking meters and I had had enough of the traffic, so we decided to park in a flat rate parking lot a…

Year: 2016 Adventure Number: 3

Hooray to another full weekend day off! Like usual, I wanted to try and at least put this day to a little bit of use. Originally, I was going to try and get tomorrow off as well and go up to San Francisco. That didn’t really pan out, so Allyson and I decided to head…

Squad Goals 

Just as I was crawling into bed last night I peeked over at my phone to see a ton of unopened text messages and a couple missed calls from my two best friends. I replied to find out that one of them and another close friend had gone to L.A, drank too much, and weren’t…

Year: 2016 Adventure Number: 2

I typically tend to be scheduled at work all weekend and usually for long days. 3-930 on Friday night, 830-530 on Saturdays, and 930-630 on Sunday’s. It’s really not that bad, but my whole family and all of my friends have Sunday’s off. So while I’m sitting at the front desk waiting for the next…

My (not so?) Favorite Time of the Year 

When I was younger, Valentine’s Day was my all time favorite holiday. That’s right, it hit the list above Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and even Christmas. I’ve just always loved wearing red and pink outfits and heart necklaces, handing out Valentine’s, and getting a bunch of candy. I loved the idea of love and telling…
