Ever have so much to do that you just decide to take a nap instead? Chances are, if you are feeling stressed enough, you might just need that nap, so nap it up, my friend. There is no harm in taking one. As a current grad student, I am no stranger to stress. I recently doubled my course load to ensure that I’d finish my master’s by March 2020. Between sch...

I recently took a break from social media, and it was one of the greatest things I’ve ever done! I had no idea how many times—out of boredom or procrastination—I’d pick up my phone and automatically go to Instagram. When I decided to delete the app off of my phone, I found myself still opening my phone and clicking where the app used to be, just out of ha...

Thank you to everyone who has stuck around and continued to read these blogs even though I am super sporadic with writing them. I am not an aspiring blogger hoping to make money off of these. I really just love writing, and blogging is a fun and creative outlet for me. As long as it stays fun, I will keep at it!

I asked for suggestions on what to write on...

I blogged previously about my eating disorder and my experience through it all here, but I felt compelled to write more on this topic. I should forewarn everyone that it does get a little graphic and might be considered "TMI" for some.

When I was 20 years old, I fell in love for the very first time. He was my first love, and I was crazy about him – unhealt...

When I was 20 years old, I met a boy who I thought would one day be my husband. I thank God that he hurt me how he did. It was no doubt the most painful break up I ever went through, but it also taught me the most. It taught me that if something isn’t meant to be, it’s for a good reason. At the time, I hurt so much knowing that this boy didn’t love me lik...

A lot of time has passed since I last did one of these. My last blog was in MAY! Since then, I set one simple goal for myself to write at least one more blog before the end of 2018, but I’ve had the worst time coming up with a topic (as you can see from my 6-month hiatus). I finally decided to simply share what our life has looked like for the past year a...

Leading up to me joining Rodan + Fields, I had been struggling to find “purpose” – I had a job I liked, but I couldn’t help but feel like something was missing. I couldn’t tell you what exactly, but I knew that I wanted something more. At the end of the day, I knew the work I was doing was for someone else’s gain, and I was working to build a business tha...

It has always been a dream of mine to get a master’s degree. I loved school growing up and had a desire to pursue a higher education, but I honestly had NO idea what area of study to pursue. My dad has two master’s degrees both in Engineering, and my mom has a PhD in Speech Therapy – two of the smartest people I know. I’ve always admired their intelligenc...

Have you ever made a lifestyle change and had people give you a hard time for it? Maybe they disrespected you behind your back or even to your face? I had an experience like this a few years ago. I decided to make a change and had a few "friends" who were all of a sudden not so friendly. I remember being really upset because I didn’t know WHY they felt th...
