A chaotic room of stories. My curiosities lead me in all types of directions, creating a chaotic writing pathway. I want this place to be for experimenting, improving my craft, and sharing new ideas with anyone willing to read them.
5 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Working from Home
When I first quit my job to pursue writing I had a particular fantasy that would play in my head. I would be sitting at a local coffee shop typing away while becoming the next J.K. Rowling. In my head, I thought I would only have to work a few hours a day and get to spend more time with family. It seemed like an absolute dream come true. While working from home does have amazing rewards, it definitely was nothing like what I imagined.

Why Women Need to Stop Tearing Down Other WomenTop Story - August 2018
We are in a scary and exciting time right now for women. With all the movements and people coming out to tell their story, it feels as if women are taking steps in the right direction. It is not like we are asking for anything crazy, either. We merely want to be looked at as equal, to be able to wear what we want, and to not have a fear of being molested or sexually harassed everywhere we turn. The only problem I have with all of this is that, while we are asking for others to treat us better, we are still tearing down other women.
5 Ways to Tell It's Time for a Career Change
It is sometimes difficult for us to see when we are ready for a change in our lives. If we just take a step back and assess the situation, we usually get a better perspective. I spent years of my life thinking I was happy and in a longterm career only to realize it was actually the reason for all the suffering I was feeling. From personal experience, I can say that it can sometimes be impossible to tell the difference between the need for a career change or just going through a phase of boredom.
7 Effective Tips for Your Morning Routine Before School
It is that time of year again that some of us are excited, while others are filled with complete dread. School zones are now in effect and stores are flooded with shoppers preparing for the upcoming school year. Whether you are a college student or a parent getting ready for your kid's school, a morning routine can be remarkably beneficial in setting the mood.
Tips to Achieve Your Ultimate O
What is something that humans and animals have in common? That would be sex. The difference between us and most animals is that we actually can enjoy this act recreationally instead of using it just as a tool to procreate. With something that feels so incredibly amazing for both men and women, there seems to be an imbalance. I recently read that up to 80 percent of women fake it in bed. While this is an enormous percentage, it didn't really surprise me.
How to Side Hustle with a Full-Time Job
A "side hustle" is something that people have been doing for years but has recently become more popularized with younger generations (like myself). The definition of a "side hustle" is typically any type of employment done in addition to a full-time job. Usually, this means a freelance job that is used to gain a few extra dollars or to start the beginning stages of a potential full-time career.

Short Term and Long Term Benefits of YogaTop Story - August 2018
I've never been the biggest in fitness activities. From a very young age, I knew sports would never come naturally to me and hand-eye coordination was impossible. I did practice ballet for several years and, while I loved it, I still lacked a certain grace that others in my class had. Now I consider myself a sports admirer; I'll try anything once but I'll fail miserably and have that be the last. One 'sport' that I have fallen for (in a good way) is yoga.
How To Schedule Your Day More Productively
Having a productive day can sometimes be downright impossible. I'll sometimes stare at the blank word document on my computer for ages with nothing but air moving back and forth in my brain. While I have some days where you cannot stop my workflow it feels like other days I have never written a word in my entire life. Have you ever felt this way before? I promise you are not alone and we like to keep it under wraps for whatever reason.
Why You Should Eliminate "Cheat Day" from Your Vocabulary
Most all of us have had some type of insecurity about our bodies at one point in our life. We might have even tried a new crazed diet to slim down a bit or even tried skipping meals to fit into a certain outfit or look good in a certain photo. Eventually these fad diets we try out end abruptly after our cravings and hunger take over and inevitably end in a cheat day. Not all of us go through this but more often than not I see close ones feeling guilt because they cheated on some new diet.
The Problem With Social Media and Politics
We live in a new modern world where some grade schools offer coding classes and social media is checked right after waking up in the morning. Technology has grown so fast in the past decade that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with all the change. With anything new, there are bound to be negative impacts on society. While social media is an amazing tool used for connections and interactions, it can also be a place where people can spread hatred while being anonymous.
Learning To Love Yourself
There are a lot of things in this world that are hard to swallow. Whether it be politics, natural disasters, or humanitarian issues we have a lot of bad around us. We also have an incredible amount of good that sometimes gets pushed to the side with the negative always weighing us down. One issue most people deal with on a daily basis is a lack of self-esteem. Even if you feel confident you still have those days where you don’t feel as pretty or as smart as you would like.
