I always thought of myself as someone who ‘didn’t care what people think’ (yes, yes, cliché, I know). In reality, everyone cares what people think in one way or another.

My 5 year WordPress anniversary is today. I thought it was May 23rd (which is also my wedding anniversary and inspired this post last year) because I received the ‘happy anniversary’ notification late last year, but it is actually the 21st (Whatever, close enough to still make my previous post relevant!) So, happy five year anniversary, I’m Fine, Stop Asking! Continue reading “Happy Five Years, I’m Fine, Stop Asking!”

Three years ago I thought I was going through the most stressful time of my life. I thought I would barely make it through March. I wanted to quit school and skip town. I wanted the year to be over with. I wanted to “fast forward” to the future.

I have no hesitation in sharing that anxiety in school has been one of the biggest challenges in my life so far. Exam pressure on top of general and unbearable anxiety isn’t ideal, and the teachers don’t really seem to understand student mental health in modern society.

Last January, almost exactly one year ago, I did something I never thought I could do. This ‘something’ may sound silly, and maybe even a little bit pathetic to anyone who has never experienced an anxiety disorder, but today is Bell Let’s Talk Day. And since today is all about ending the stigma of mental illness, I’m going to talk about one of my more embarrassing anxiety moments. Continue reading ““Don’t Go To Flo””
I probably should have written this part earlier, but things have been busy. So, this is more of a recap of the last few weeks. To catch up on our house hunting adventure, read part one here. Continue reading “Two Broke Millennials Go House Hunting: Part Two”
