The Day I Decide to Change My Life

An old post I found hidden on my laptop – I guess sometimes things do change for the better. #feelingcontent “So, what happens when things aren’t really going your way? Someone in your life isn’t fulfilling your needs, your goals aren’t being accomplished as easily, or you have the realization that adulting is a real thing and maybe you aren’t so good at it.   Quite frankly, I have such high expectations of people and things. I always hope that people will put in the effort that I desire or that a situation will bring me joy and happiness. And of course, those things never really happen 100% of the time.   Costa Rica is amazing and some days are better than others. Sometimes I am really sick of the 75% humidity, the catcalling, the bugs, the rice &beans. Other days I find myself in a magical part of the […]

I’m Struggling

Flashing back to my younger life to set the stage a little, I was and still am a huge people pleaser. My life feels a little incomplete when people “don’t like me” or don’t try as hard in the friendship/relationship. I take it personally and view it as if it’s because of something I have done or if there is something wrong with me. I take it so personally that I stay up many nights internally sad because I am constantly trying to make everyone like me and it just never works. I am trying to go so far out of my way to make things easier for others and to force all these friendships. And that makes me sad. So as people close to me may know last fall semester was really hard for me. I found myself struggling with many thoughts and decisions internally, and thus, I found myself […]

Swiss Adventures

About 3 weeks ago I went on probably my favorite trip in all of Europe: Interlaken, Switzerland. There is something to be said about the immense beauty of the Alps. But since I can’t even find the words to begin to describe my 3-day Swiss adventure, here’s a video! Enjoy!

Why I Travel

Have you ever found the one thing in life that gives you the motivation to push through even the toughest of days? The thing that brings you to tears when you think about what it has given you? That “thing” for me is Travel- It is the thing that makes my days worthwhile and constantly gives me something to look forward to. Ever since I was a little girl I traveled. My parents took me to Mexico, Germany, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, back to Mexico, so on and so forth for my entire life. I grew up with the idea that I am meant to explore this huge and wild place called earth. I’m not meant to stay in the bubble that is the United States but instead take part in bettering myself by seeing how other people live. Traveling isn’t easy. In fact, when I went to Costa Rica for […]

Why Not Knowing What You Want May Not Be So Bad After All

My dad told me “Quit being so wishy-washy, you’ll regret it.” I kind of give it to him for the “you’ll regret it part,” only because I stress out everyone in my life & who wouldn’t regret that? Other than that, there are very few personal regrets. During my childhood I dreamt of becoming an actress (because I am so overly dramatic it pains me). I took a shot at being an artist, until I realized I couldn’t draw more than what looked like a potato. I entertained the idea of teaching until I made my brother cry because I am too bossy. Then I realized my true calling of becoming an aquatic veterinarian. Until I realized like two jobs exist in that field. That quickly changed to dreaming of being a Victoria’s Secret Angel. After coming to terms with reality, I turned to wanting to join the Air Force as […]
