Living Away From Home for the First Time

For never having lived away from home, my boyfriend and I are doing quite well. We cook our own dinner, shop for groceries, pay our bills, both have full-time jobs and can still go out and have fun from time-to-time. We both have busy schedules not leaving us time for a lot to do, but…

The Topic of Money

Money has always been an awkward topic I choose not to talk about. The reason could be because I never really had money. I grew up in a middle class family and money was tight at times. We could never just got out and splurge on whatever we chose. I mean, as a kid, I…

Feeling Lucky For Who I Am

I’ve always wanted to be one of the Kardashians. I often dreamed of the fame, fortune and beauty until I realized how f***ed up their family is. Sure, they possess family values and are close, but all of them are out of sorts and not to mention, they lost their father at a young age….

My Never Ending Battle With My Gut

“You used to be more defined.” His words hurt like sharp razors digging into my heart. I had two options: either I shrugged it off and focused more on the chub on his stomach or dwell on it. The thing is, he didn’t say it rudely or condescendingly. He simply just said it and joked…

Making Friends Isn’t Easy

Moving to another state where you know no one is often difficult. It’s even harder when you have no friends that you can confide in. Your real friends are 800 + miles away back at home and you must make new ones, which isn’t easy. My boyfriend doesn’t care too much if he makes friends…

I’m an Attention Seeker Due to Middle Child Syndrome

I’m jealous of a dog. There, I said it and I mean it. I know what you’re thinking too– you are one pathetic human being. When it comes to attention, it’s a constant need of mine. I must always be in the limelight or else I feel shitty. In all started when I was a…

Why Is It So Hard To Be Yourself?

You’ve seen in first-hand. When you meet someone for the first time, you truly aren’t “you?” You’re merely a version of yourself because you must see how the other person reacts to your personality. If they are more so calm, you’re more than likely to act the same way because you don’t want to scare…

Don’t Chase Memories

Memories. Whether they’re good or bad, we all have them. Unfortunately, there are those you prefer not to remember, but for the most part, your mind flocks to the better memories. This is true when you break up with someone. Instead of remembering the bad times, you tend to think of the fun moments you…

Do You Love Truly Yourself?

Take a step back in front of the mirror and really look at yourself. Are you happy with your appearance? Do you favor your curves? Do you like your eyes, nose and mouth? What about your body? Do you like the way it looks in certain clothes? It’s easy to say: well, if you’re unhappy…

Caring Too Much What Others Think

I care far too much what others think of me. Whenever I see someone talking, whispering or pointing at me, I immediately begin to panic. I hate confrontation and am terrible at it. If someone doesn’t like me, I cannot simply, “shrug it off.” I constantly talk about it and will never just let it…

The Not-So Glamorous Side To Magazines

Gosh, the first time I watched the Devil Wears Prada, my eyes glowed with envy of Anne Hathaway, who worked for a magazine. I was so jealous of her style, job and role at the high end fashion magazine. But, this was before I interned for 2 well-known magazines, Family Circle and Good Housekeeping. When…

The Unpredictability of Life

Life is so unpredictable at times. One minute everything is going exactly as planned and then out of the blue, your whole world crashes down. All it takes is a flick of a button and your world is turned upside down. You never know what sort of event will happen. Maybe you’re the sort of…
