Throwback Thursday Thought Piece

Today introduces a new feature I’m experimenting with as a play off of the über popular Throwback Thursdays! Throwback Thursday Thought Piece will be me revisiting memories from the past and spinning them into funny, thought-provoking but most importantly, just entertaining. So what memory gets the honor of being my first TTTP?

My first kiss.

Love Thyself And The Rest Will Follow – Part Two

Back in college, I had this friend who I’ll call SG who I became close with as our senior year began. We met through a mutual friend I was roommates with before she graduated and we realized we had much in common. We liked the same music and laughed at the same stuff which easily made us partners in crime. When I look back to our friendship and how it then fell apart, I could spot some of the signs as to why it didn’t work out. I probably noticed them during the life of our relationship but I refused to pay attention because I was addicted to the companionship. Boy oh boy was that bad.

Love Thyself And The Rest Will Follow – Part One

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching this Saturday, there are probably a lot of people who are feeling levels of loneliness heightened by the knowledge that they’re single and won’t be spending that day with someone “special.” Let’s get one thing straight, you are all the special you need for that day. I’ve spent more V-days single than I have in a relationship and there’s a lot I learned from them worth sharing. This week begins a mini feature on love and relationships I’m calling “Love Thyself and The Rest Will Follow.”

Am I The Next Stephanie Meyer? I Hope to Hell Not.

So, if you recall, some days ago I posted a list of goals I had for this blog. One of them was to use this as a platform to start sharing my writing in the hopes of maybe publishing a novel someday if I’m good enough or if people actually want to read it maybe? Anyway! I created a page where additional excerpts and chapters for the untitled writing project will go right here.

If you wanna, please take the time to read it and comment on it. I kind of just write from the heart, edit later, and hope for the best. If you think I should quit while I’m ahead, tell me. I probably won’t, because my haters are my greatest motivators, but don’t be afraid to be honest with me.

If I Write These Down, Will You Keep Me Accountable?

Blogging 201 has started, woo hoo! How much did I fail to finish off 101 on time? Majorly. How much better do I want to do this time around? SO MUCH. But holy crap, so many new things have been developing in my life in the last month and it’s become hard to focus my attention on just this. I then get bogged down with shame feelings because I want to have an awesome and successful blog, but I’m not doing the work to get it done. Unfortunately, this isn’t like college where I could like…not study until the last-minute, then somehow still crank out a B+ paper. This is the internet. It’s like, seriously life-changing, you know?
