monthly playlist: october

I’ve decided to continue making these little playlist posts because they’re easy and I currently don’t have time for anything right now, if I’m being honest. Which explains my lack of posts. A lot of these songs are sad, now that I’m looking back at the playlist, but it’s fall and fall is the time…

holding onto you

Listen. I love poetry. I love poetry with every fiber in my soul, but there is truly a special place in my heart for spoken word poetry. There is just something about the way a person can get so into their words and forget about everything else and literally pour their heart out through what…

monthly playlist: september

I’ve seen a couple blogs that I love do this, so I thought, why not give it a go? My music taste varies so much it’s almost ridiculous, so apologies in advance for that. I hope you find at least one new song that you enjoy. What were you listening to last month? ♡ usual…

comparison is the thief of joy

Comparison is the thief of joy. Those wise words by Theodore Roosevelt have been some that I’ve been trying to follow for the past few months, but have seemed to fail at. Comparison is something that everyone struggles with, and as an impressionable teen, it seems that my peers and I seem to struggle with…

losing my fire

I’ve always thought I was a pretty creative person. I’ve always loved writing and photography, and they’ve always been two of my biggest creative outlets. But, this year I haven’t been nearly as creative as I want to be and it’s crushing. I’ve been writing an okay amount, not as much as I’ve done in the…

I deleted social media for a week and here’s what happened.

I deleted social media for a week and here’s what happened. The first week of September, I decided to take a social media sabbatical to see how productive i could be and to prove to myself that I was truly addicted to social media. On Thursday, August 30th, I deleted every social media platform I…

18 things I learned at 18

I feel like these posts are very generic and overdone, and I’m definitely not the first person to give advice on life when I barely know what I’m doing myself. 18 is kind of a weird age, even though everyone says 17 is. 18 is like, you’re technically an adult but I’m still in high…

the fear of missing out

I’m definitely the type of person that feels like I need to be everywhere at once, because I’m terrified of missing out on something extravagant. That, my friends, is called FOMO. Everyone goes through FOMO in their life, which stands for “fear of missing out”. I’ve had several cases in my short eighteen years but…
