the moment you let go

Author Paul Kalanithi once wrote, "Putting lifestyle first is how you find a job - not a calling." Many of us, at some point, have worked in jobs that we weren't exactly thrilled about. Whether that was in retail as a teenager or the food industry as an adult, there have been times where you... Continue Reading →

truth

People fear many things. Spiders. Heights. Water. Failure. Interestingly enough, whether or not people are cognizant of it, they can also be afraid of telling the truth. Before you look to the person next to you and call them a liar, take a closer look at yourself. Some people are afraid of the truth of... Continue Reading →

I ran a half marathon

Perhaps, I'm crazy. The first time I ever mentioned wanting to run a half marathon was to a friend years ago in my dorm room. I said, "We should run a half marathon." And that was that. No plan, no action, nothing. There was school, work, involvement, other responsibilities that occupied my time. The last... Continue Reading →

Being Authentic

Someone told me once that they admired how I did my own thing. How I followed the beat to my own drum. Being authentic is hard. I'm not going to lie. There are a ton of influences from others telling you what you should and shouldn't do, from social media, from pop culture, and from... Continue Reading →

Discrimination 2018

This month, my mother, aunt, and I were in a store when the sales associate approached us. She asked, “Who was first? You?” And pointed to a Caucasian customer behind us. The customer said that my family and I were first. Rather than assist us herself, the sales associate walked towards another colleague, returned to... Continue Reading →

Dance // A Poem

I was going to write a blog about dance. In the midst of the draft, I left it and thought to do something fun. When I was in middle school/primary school, my language arts teacher said that we had a writing assignment. She went on Google and clicked on a random word generator. My two... Continue Reading →

Road Trips

Road trips: one of the easiest ways to avoid airlines and their hidden fees. I have to pay $30 because my luggage is 0.4 lbs over the limit? Yes. (cries in corner, but, don't worry, the flight has been delayed 2 hours so you still have time) Whether you are crossing states or entering different... Continue Reading →

Potential

When you think of potential, you may think mass x gravity x height. That's if you love physics of course. Sorry, wrong blog post. It's safe to say that a lot of people realize potential in others more than they do themselves. Things like reach for the stars or you can be anything in the... Continue Reading →

This Day and Age

People claim that millennials are technology ridden individuals with nothing better to do than take photos of their food. Ouch. I will agree that technology has influenced millennials and all generations to a certain extent. One way is obviously via social media. Facebook, SnapChat, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter, are all just a few platforms where... Continue Reading →

Betrayal

I think a lot of times, people are shocked by betrayal. We think we know someone, but realize that they actually don't know us and how their actions and words would make us feel. Betrayal can feel like what people describe as a back stabbing moment, and, for some, it can come as a surprise.... Continue Reading →
