Right now we are living in very, um, trying times, to say the least. I am running low on toilet paper and faith in humanity as my local target still is out of stock on the essentials. I'm confined to my tiny college apartment with the car I share with my sisters a million miles back in Chicago. I have spent the past few days in self-quarantine after an actually pretty isolating spring break with three friends on the gulf. I've really had nothing to do but browse the Internet and eat and sleep. I have always joked about becoming a hermit (I can be very introverted at times), but this is not what I wanted...

Scrapbooking is one of my favorite hobbies, but frankly, I am a broke college student who cannot afford to spent hundreds of dollars on supplies, nor do I have the time to set up … Continue reading All About Digital Scrapbooking
Hey lovelies! Long time no talk (as per usual). I normally use the excuse that I'm too busy to post, but that's really not the case. I mean, the past few days have been super busy, but I feel like I have zero excuse for not posting in three months. And that's what I'm here … Continue reading The Best Revenge, or Why I haven’t Posted for Three Months

Hey lovelies! I hope you are all having a wonderful day. And if not, that's ok too. I'm deciding to kind of re-vamp this blog and post a lot more, as writing is a good creative outlet for me, as well as a tool I can use to cope with my anxiety. I've suffered from … Continue reading How to Talk to Someone With Anxiety
"You must always have faith in people. And most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself." – Elle Woods, Legally Blonde. I feel like this quote sums up everything one would need to know about getting out of high school alive and in one piece. High school is not easy, let me tell you. I … Continue reading High School Survival Tips
