Okay so, I’ve been married for two and a half months (in case you some how missed that in the title) and I have gained some wisdom.
Very little wisdom. Like, one measly grain of wisdom, but still…some wisdom. And I feel like I should share this minuscule amount of wisdom with other young, newly married couples out there. And for the first time ever, I’m going to share a few pictures of myself and Jeff. Continue reading “What I’ve Learned From Marriage in Two and a Half Months”
I think I am pretty honest and open about the struggles that come with mental health disorders. Yeah, I often write about my accomplishments, but I’ve also tried hard to write about my failures and about the times when anxiety won. Today, I want to take an honest, in-depth look at how anxiety manifests itself. I want to show you how ugly it can be. Continue reading “An Honest Look at Anxiety”
A few weeks ago, I wrote my last post about hating Adobe InDesign. I really did hate it. I cried. Many times while trying to figure this complex program out. It was difficult. And I almost dropped the class. If it wasn’t for the rational words of my mom and my fiancé, I would have dropped this class. I probably would have dropped all my classes.

Over a year ago, I wrote this post. Now, I am engaged. When I wrote that post, I hadn’t even met the man who would eventually be my fiancee. Actually, I wouldn’t meet him for another 8 months. And 8 months after that, we would get engaged.
Yesterday I had one of the worst panic attacks of my life. While driving. To my first day back at school. Sounds fun eh? Do you want to know what happened? Well, if you’re still reading this, I assume that you do. And I’m going to accompany this story with some crappy pictures I drew. In Microsoft Paint.
Yesterday I worked almost 13 hours…and I was just way too tired to write a new post. So, I’m going to do it now instead.
A few weeks ago, I experienced something I had never experienced before. A very specific type of envy. Church envy.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
Today, one of my friends texted me and asked if I was doing anything tonight. Nope, I had no plans. And yet, my instant reaction was to say “oh sorry, I’m busy.” Or “Oh sorry, I’m really tired from work, maybe another night.” I don’t know what’s been going on with me lately, but I haven’t been feeling very social. And that sort of sucks.

When I graduate, I will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts. I’m doing a double major in professional writing/communications and sociology. I hate telling people this. Why? Because I get the same response every…single…time. “Oh, that’s nice,” They say. “But what are you going to do with that?” I hate this question for two reasons. Let me explain.
