As I’ve mentioned before, I recently started going to counseling. This week we hit a topic that is really close to my heart, and I wanted to share it with all of you.
When I was younger, I had a hard time making friends. Some might say I was bullied, but I would say I was ignored. I remember coming home one day in middle school and telling Mum I would prefer for people to treat me negatively because at least then they would notice me.
Any bullying story is difficult to go through, so I’ll try not to make this one too difficult. Continue reading A Piece of My Story – My Class Ignored Me →
The thing about writers is we always try to find something worth while to bring to our readers. What will bring more people to our content? What will make people want to engage?
I’m trying to sway my focus away from the number of hits my blog gets and turn it into something more personal – something genuine – so please bear with me as I make this transition.
So, what’s new with me?
I recently started going to counseling, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s such a blessing to be able to have time dedicated every week to working out one’s thoughts and perspectives. Continue reading My Spiritual Walk and Counseling →
You would not believe how excited I am. Over the past six months there were a couple of weeks when I could hardly get out of bed due to the way I was feeling. Just walking from the bed to the bathroom would bring on heart palpitations which would last for hours. I would become out of breath practically unable to move.
Now I feel great! Not quite 100%, but I can at least live life more normally. Continue reading From Bedrest To Cleaning The House →
Hello Everyone 🙂
So I’ve had a bit of a rough last few weeks (which is why recent content has been rather depressing). I apologize for the melancholy mood. It’s just that I’ve been struggling with depression, and writing is a good outlet for me. Why was I depressed? Well… Continue reading Not Depressed Anymore →
Okay, I’ve had my time to let reality soak in. Now I’m ready to share.
This past May I got my first apartment. It was beautiful and unique. I was ready to settle into my first home! I still had some anxiety, but I knew I could do it.
The girl who had agreed to be my roommate bailed on me after I signed the lease. Not a big deal, so I started looking for another one. I also looked for work since I knew my savings would only last me so long. Continue reading I’m Moving Again →
So I’ve kept quiet for quite a while now. Other than my poetry, no one has heard much from me. I haven’t talked about my anxiety or what’s going on with me.
The truth is, I’ve been dealing with some things. They’ve hit me like a cold wind in a frost-bitten face. I wasn’t prepared to share what’s been happening with you guys. Continue reading Why You Haven’t Heard. . →
Hello Everyone! So school is starting for many of you, and I just wanted to pass along some knowledge from an English major!
Writing. We all have to do it, but it doesn’t always come naturally. I once had a roommate who would sit for hours trying to finish a paragraph while on the other side of the room I would have completed an essay in an hour. Now I’m sharing my secret on how I got good essay grades without pining away consistently at books. Continue reading 3 Steps! How I Got a “B” Without Reading The Book! →
Have you ever had such immobilizing anxiety that you didn’t know what to do?

This week I’m focusing on “Uprising Youth.” Being a youthful person myself, I know how difficult it is to have the same independence and stature as others when you look so young.
When I started my job as a reporter, I would handle myself as a professional, making phone calls and scheduling my own interviews. It was so fun! What I didn’t enjoy was my interviewees’ reactions when they met with me face to face. Continue reading Dear Youth: This Is Your Time →
