my blog is a soundcloud mixtape

I don't make music. I am not an artist, but no one is supporting my blog. Much like that one guy you went to school with. You barely know him, but he keeps randomly sharing his mixtape link with you. My blog is like a soundcloud mixtape to some people.  Lately, the idea of support… Continue reading my blog is a soundcloud mixtape

dollar dollar bill, y’all

I always told to never rely on one channel to bring in money. Always have some sort of hustle. And even though I have a few, I realized the other day that  I have developed this skill of earning money in non-traditional ways. During my college years, I had jobs that paid a little and… Continue reading dollar dollar bill, y’all

Is Letting Go Always Necessary?

This post might sound a bit convoluted and rambled, but it's been on my mind and seemed like an excellent moment to put some words to paper, especially for another edition of Post Graduation Thoughts. This morning I came across an article where someone claimed that detachment was the #1 thing they wanted to work… Continue reading Is Letting Go Always Necessary?

the year of _____

Originally my plan was to create a list of 17 lessons from 2017, but that was a bit much. So, here are 5 lessons that I can say have truly impacted my year.

2017: growth and happiness

I’ve been debating how to make my return to my blog. I have had writer’s block for the past few months because the initial excitement of my new project wore off. I was no longer inspired and I felt like I had nothing good to say. So I thought why not end this year with… Continue reading 2017: growth and happiness

You are Powerful: Invest in Yourself

Happy Friday! The idea of investing in yourself has been hot on my mind lately, so here I am with some Friday inspiration. Invest in yourself. Sounds easy enough to some; while others think it’s nearly impossible because they don’t have everything they need. However, choosing to invest in yourself is one of the most… Continue reading You are Powerful: Invest in Yourself

Looking for Adventure

When I was younger, I feel like I made all these plans of places I would go, things I would see, stuff I would do. A bucket list full of adventures, unforgettable memories, and traditional milestones that seemed so far away at the age of twelve. Honestly, the one I made in seventh grade was… Continue reading Looking for Adventure

Woke in the Workplace

**The word “woke” is increasingly used as a byword for social awareness** If you know me at all, you know I am VERY passionate about a number of social and human rights issues. I double majored in women’s and gender studies and sociology, so learning more about marginalized voices, identities, and communities is my life.… Continue reading Woke in the Workplace

Health Journey: Sometimes I eat tofu…

In case you didn’t know, #summer2k17 is the summer I finally get my life together and start new habits and finally doing the things I always wanted to (but claimed I never had time for).

Step 1 of Adulting: find job

I’m not sure if this an official thing, but I’m convinced that a crisis of career identity is real, especially when you’re young and starting out in the world. You have been so dedicated for years on a particular field of study or a career path because that’s where you ultimately planned on seeing yourself.… Continue reading Step 1 of Adulting: find job
