I'll start this honestly. For way too many years I trashed NaNoWriMo because I was an arrogant kid. Simple as that. I made my own rules on how you should write and churning out a book in a month went against all those rules. You can't put out quality work so fast. Does a book end at… Continue reading NaNoWriMo: What I Learned
Even the best decisions can end up not quite how you want or thought. You can come into something whole-heartedly, weigh the pros and the cons, and walk away relieved. There's a problem though: If you haven't addressed the issue, that solution won't work. You can cut all your arms and legs off, lock yourself… Continue reading Making A Mistake
Unfortunately, to a lot of people a 24-year-old recent college grad with no specific 9-5 office job doesn't need a break from anything. No break from working out, I'm young.

Sometimes you just wake up agitated, especially if you didn't sleep well. Which is kind of my case. To phrase it simply, I'm… Continue reading Get Uncomfortable
It's getting pretty stinkin' close to summer, but there's still time to spring clean our brains. At least here, in Chicago, it's finally starting to warm up, brighten up, and feel like spring/summer. It's been way too cold, cloudy, and rainy to feel like a real spring. We may have even skipped it altogether however… Continue reading Spring Clean Your Brain
I'm not a doctor. I'm not a doctor. But I do have asthma. And I did think I had asthma for quite awhile before I went to a doctor. And I did struggle from it. And I knew there could be something more serious. But...I did nothing? Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com All right, let's… Continue reading Do You Have Asthma?
