Oh boy, it's been quite the challenge to keep myself from falling over the edge for the past few weeks. What is it about adulthood that has us all so frazzled? Is it fear of failure? or worse, being successful and not having any time left for leisure? This past month and a half I've… Continue reading The impending doom of adulthood- a short update
I am what the title says. I've been slacking on this blog again, and well, slacking on just about everything except for my recital rep, which I feel like I'm working on if I don't have class or work, which is good, but the other parts of my life are in shambles. I haven't been… Continue reading I’m exhausted and allergic to everything

It can really grind on my self esteem. As a women's liberationist, I feel ashamed of my aversion to candids,… Continue reading I hate Candids

Some will love it, some will be critics, and let's face it, no one will ever "get it" as much as you do. Maybe that sounds pretentious, but parents know their children better then any of… Continue reading Insecurities Galore!- How can I ever cope?
I'm obsessed with reading Christian living blogs- not only that, but they're usually Christian mom blogs or wife blogs- I am neither of those things. It seems important to recognize here that I never want to be a wife or a mother, nor am I religious in any way, shape or form- but I just… Continue reading I’m Obsessed with Christian Living Blogs- Send Help
How do I even begin? Where do I end? How can I ever meet this word count when I'm done telling the story? I know I need more, but what? Should I even finish it? These are the questions that run through my head every time I open my novel. No matter how much I… Continue reading A Novel, A Recital and Life as A College Student: Send Help.
You're 32,000 words into the novel you've been working on for half of a year now. You're struggling, you're tired, and you have finals to worry about- yet something still draws you in.
