Meh

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love. - Neil Gaiman

Pep Talk

Some days, girl needs a serious pep talk. Who better to do that than myself?!I've always been a very "convincing" person and have needed no help pumping myself up, but lately I've been really struggling in that area for some reason. Stepping foot in Europe with no idea of where I was going, not the slightest clue as to where my friends were, and not speaking a single word of the local language reminded me that I'm awesome. I resorted to (what I honestly think is my most redeeming quality) of building myself up. Though as an adult, with a lot more failures under my belt, I've noticed this skill gets harder and harder to maintain. So I came up with the most awesomely awesome pep talks girl can come up with!
For the plethora of times I'm having a shit day, I just tell myself... Girl, you're only 25. You have a head of gorgeously thick hair and no a single wrinkle yet. Not to mention, those lips.  My friends are all having babies and getting married! Blah bl…

36: Spend New Years Eve in...

New Years Eve 2016 went a little differently than my usual NYE shenanigans: there was no heavy drinking, partying until sunrise, crawling into a tiny diner at 6 am for breakfast, but I'm not complaining. This year, I got the amazing opportunity to roll into 2016 on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom roller coaster with two of my best friends.. At Disney Paris! We all spent the day exploring Paris and then spent the night riding roller coasters and watching fireworks through a silhouette of the Hollywood Tower of Terror. It was perfect ☺️
