Tomorrow marks the end of my new job. It’s crazy to think that nearly 2 months ago I said I was unhappy about starting this job, but now I’m sad just imagining it ending. I love my job. I’ve gained so much from it. Wisdom, closure for past trauma, friendship, and perhaps more. I can’t believe that it went by so quickly and not a single day was “bad”. I just can’t believe it’s almost over. I can remember the day I walked in, confused and Continue reading →
For my last post in this series, I’m going to examine my 3rd post on this lovely blog of mine. The topic is one that is really crazy to me because, 2 years later, I’m actually about to have to act on the things that I wrote about. Continue reading →
This is a continuation of a series, analyzing my first 3 posts and seeing how I feel 2 years later. I am also doing this to (privately) analyze my growth as a writer. Continue reading →
In May of last year, I was in a terrible mental space. It was the second time in my life where I’d reached the proverbial “rock bottom” emotionally.

Question 2: What is your ninety-second personal elevator speech?
So, I’m continuing on from my last post about a tinybuddha article that has really given me some important things to meditate on. The second question actually caught me by surprise because this article focused on gaining a better sense of my life’s purpose, yet here I am being posed an interview question. I honestly skipped it each time I’ve come back to read the article and I’ve contemplated skipping it here too. Then I started to think, perhaps that’s exactly why I should be paying attention. I tend to disregard things that are sometimes very important just because of the way I came across them.

It’s been so long since I’ve written about running because it’s been so long since I’ve gone for a run! Until today. I’m finally back at it and I’m more motivated than ever to get my body stronger and able to run longer. Interestingly enough, what motivates me the most to work out are my depressing morning emotions. The stronger the negative feelings, the stronger my urge to run it off.
So I ran today, 3 miles in Continue reading →
