Success? Success!

I recently saw a picture at work that said, “don’t let someone else’s definition of success determine your own”. Such a simple statement, one that I’m sure I’ve heard many times before, but for some reason this time it stood out to me. In my eyes success and happiness won’t always sit at the same…

I Think I’m Going Through My First Break-Up

I’ve never had a boyfriend, or anything remotely close to a boyfriend. I’ve been single my whole life and I’ve always liked it that way. Until recently, when I was introduced to a stand-up guy; he had a great job, found my lame stories interesting, was courteous, and most importantly, he liked me for who…

I’m Becoming A Vegan

Being a vegan is not hard. I’m serious, I’ve talked to my friends who are and they said it themselves, “it’s not even that hard.” Cutting out animals and their products just is not that difficult in this day and age. Anyone can do it, you just have to be motivated and stick to it!…

To The Best Friend I Lost When I Went To College

Former Best Friend, You were my rock. My support system, my shoulder to lean on, and my sister. We spend so much time together it seemed like nothing could separate us. You were my best friend for the most important years of my life. You watched me grow and helped me too. You never judged…

How it Felt to Get My Wisdom Teeth Pulled

They say that it won’t be so bad…They say that the pain is only temporary…They say it will all be over soon. It’s not what they say, it’s what they don’t say. They don’t say that the first 8-10 hours your lips will feel inflated, as if a hose full of helium was hooked up to your…

My New Year’s Resolution

Everyone has a New Year’s resolution. Most people pledge to lose weight, be more active, spend less money, or do something good everyday. For the past 3 years I have had the same resolution, say yes more. A riff off of the movie Yes Man, but in my version I promise to say yes when my…

The Wild World Of Huskies

They hover at the bar, lingering, waiting for the right moment to engage. Timing is everything in this moment. If he acts too soon he will scare her off. She’ll be able to sense that he was waiting for her approach and she will get spooked. Wait too long, and he’ll miss his opportunity completely….
