Feeling Alone For Christmas.


Hello Friends, and Happy Holidays!

Today is Christmas Day (clearly I’m publishing this a few days later). And I am sitting at home, in front of my fireplace and Christmas tree, reflecting on my past year.

I find that as I get older, the holidays seem to get more and more melancholy. Especially the year of college graduation, when so many simultaneous changes are happening. And so many things are sitting still, and not moving.

I’m motivated to use 2017 as a kick starter to making 2018 my year. And yes, I said that last year but sometimes you just can’t control fate, motivation, and the lack of resources you may have to go full speed ahead. But you bet I’m going to put things in line for this year! As of now I already have trips planned, emails sent, and appointments booked because I’m destined to make myself the person I strive to be.

Life is so short, and I would hate to have 2019 coming around the corner and once again be saying, “Boy, this year just flew by didn’t it?” without having any tangible proud accomplishments on the table.

Now is the time to set forth on the path you’ve been meaning to take, no matter how hard that adventure may be.

I know that for this coming year, I look forward to getting a step closer to my dream career, acquiring my own living space, and feeling more financially secure.

I know those are broad and vague, but at least two of the three can be somewhat accomplished in my opinion. My journey starts now! The tricky part will be staying positive, but it’s like I always tell myself:

She Believed She Could So She Did.”

Thank you for being a part of this strange yet personal online corner of the internet I share. Cheers to a new start.




When in Doubt, Wear a Pant Suit

Hello Friends!

I’m popping in this morning with an early Monday lifestyle blog. So hopefully you can enjoy a hot cup of coffee and take a small break from whatever work you may be trying to avoid this morning. Hang in there, the holidays are nearly here!

Last week, I had quite a few meetings at work, so I needed to up my fashion game just a little bit. The first thing that came to my mind was a pant suit. It screams professionalism, fashion sense, and meetings meetings meetings. What more could you need your clothes to say?

I didn’t happen to own a full pant suit set, so I make shifted what I could find and went with a grey color scheme. Grey pants on sale from Express, a blazer from Loft, and a button down shirt from New York and Company with some simple heels and a belt. Boom. You’re ready for the day!

I’ve been exploring my fashion sense more and more recently as I’ve been trying to figure out how to comfortably attend work without showing up wearing a full set of pajamas. This may be the start of a new clothing series for work! Who knows. We all know I’m not one for routine.

Enjoy my awkward poses and silliness below.

Until next time,

The Ultimate Routine.

It’s an on-going phenomenon. Now that I’ve entered what many refer to as “the real world,” I’m noticing more and more the daily occurrence of most adults. Taking mental notes, if you will. Get up, put on work clothes, sit in traffic, go to work, stay late at work, go home, cook, clean, go to bed. I mean, what kind of lifestyle is that?

A good percentage of the adults partaking in this drying routine dislike their life to some extent: whether it be their job, the people involved, or something else.

I’ve been working for a grand total of two months and so far noticing how I’m slowly being affected. My mother will text me nearly every evening asking when she should expect me home and I constantly have to respond back with a classic “I’m working late tonight (again)”. Not to mention the hour or so commute back home. And no, this is not me complaining or asking for a pity party. What I am doing is recognizing that the daily routine of the average American stinks. You spend a majority of your young adult life going to school, doing homework and generally being carefree. And bam, a few months later, you’re suddenly thrown into this entirely new bubble.

I’m also aware that it’s currently super trendy and annoying to the general public when millennials talk about how they don’t want to work because of x, y, and z. But before you judge the majority of the younger generations, take in account that there could possibly be some validity to this statement. Whatever the reasoning may be, it’s not necessarily us being lazy or unmotivated. There could also be a fear of routine. A fear that once you step foot in that pool of water, you’re stuck. A fear that you’ll have to take the first job offer you get and maybe you’ll never actually use the degree you took out $50,000 plus in loans for. It’s an extremely valid fear to have. One that I am currently living within right now.

I encourage any of you who have not opened the door to the full fledged working world to avoid the routine. No, I’m not saying don’t earn a living. But I am saying, don’t earn a living just to pay the bills. If you’ve got one life to live you surely should do just that. Live.

Until next time,
