Feeling Nostalgic

Quote of the day: “Some days I wish I could go back in life. Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.” About two weeks ago, I went back to Eugene, Oregon, home of the University of Oregon, aka my alma mater. Man did it make me feel extremely nostalgic. I swear every time I go back there, I get so emotional. I can’t believe that freaking five years ago, I was moving out of my house for the first time and getting ready to start a new chapter. Seriously, how does time fly so quickly? How was that five years ago? How…

5 Bad Habits I’m Ditching

Quote of the Day: “A bad habit never disappears miraculously, it’s an undo-it-yourself project.” Spring has passed, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to declutter. Have you heard of the app Nextdoor? I’ve noticed that everyone on that app is cleaning out their house and selling so much stuff! It’s kind of insane. Honestly though, this is the perfect time to do so. Getting rid of things you no longer use is important, but ditching bad habits is equally as important… well maybe even more so. I have acknowledged this list of bad habits that I continually perform and am deciding to make a conscious effort to get rid…

What’s Your Hurdle Moment?

Quote of the Day: “Challenge is inevitable. Growth is optional.” I’ve spent a lot of time walking and driving around my neighborhood during this pandemic. Listening to music is great, but can sometimes get really repetitive… plus I can’t sing on my walks (well, I guess I could, but I would be that person singing out loud). I’ve found that listening to a podcast is a way better use of my time. Podcasts can be inspiring, motivating, and educational… if you choose the right ones. I recently came across a podcast called Hurdle with Emily Abbate. How did I come across this podcast? Well, I was out for a…

One Year After College Graduation

Quote of the day: “The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it.” About a year ago, June 17, 2019, I graduated college. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Sitting in a sea of green, doing anything to try and stay cool, and feeling stressed about walking across the stage, praying that I don’t fall in front of the most important people in my life and hundreds of random people. Seriously, those were the only thoughts running through my head. No thoughts about what I’ve accomplished or what I’ll do next… just staying cool and not embarrassing myself. Shortly after graduation…

What I Would Tell My Younger Self

Quote of the Day: “To be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid.” I turned twenty-two six months ago and I’m still in disbelief that I’m so old. If you’re older and reading this, you’re probably rolling your eyes and thinking “Old? Twenty-two? You’re still a baby” or something along those lines, but when I was younger, I always just imagined what my twenties would look like and it felt as though it was so far away. Now, I’m freaking living as a twenty-two year old and in less than ten years, I’ll be in my thirties! CRAZY! I started feeling especially old…
