No One Is a Perfect Vegan

No One Is a Perfect Vegan

I have two trains of thought on this topic. One is about perfectionism in the vegan community and the other is my personal experience. Perfectionism is extremely visible in the vegan community and maybe it’s more intensified because of the internet. I am not discussing this to minimize veganism, because I consider myself a part … Read More

Veganism is a Privilege & Other Thoughts

Veganism is a Privilege & Other Thoughts

It’s time to ruffle some feathers! I am going to talk about the “p” word, so if you are triggered by topics about privilege, then this is your warning. Before I dive into what I want to talk about, I just need to give a little disclaimer. I am vegan and I love this lifestyle … Read More

I Want to be Great

I Want to be Great

We all want to, right? We all want greatness and we all want to be successful. But what happens when you get too caught up in it? Perfectionism in combination with impatience can be debilitating at times. I am usually driven and this is partly because I strive for flawlessness. Not flawlessness in a beauty … Read More

AUTOPILOT

AUTOPILOT

When you just can’t deal… I gave up my control. I’ve let life just happen. I’ve sat back and allowed co-pilots to steer me. This sounds great, right? Just sitting back and relaxing. Let me tell you, it hasn’t been great. For the past few weeks, I have done the minimum. I go to school, … Read More

How About This Weather?

How About This Weather?

An all too common phrase in the Midwest. It’s true, if you want the weather to change, just wait five minutes. But do we have to use this as small talk? I’m not a fan of obligatory conversations. I never know how to respond and most of the time I’m just not in the mood … Read More

You’ll Never Have A Boyfriend Because…

You’ll Never Have A Boyfriend Because…

Can we just stop? Can we stop constantly asking women if they have a boyfriend? Can we stop putting so much value on a person’s relationship status. I am not against relationships and I am not against people who take pride in their relationship. I am simply tired of “well-meaning” strangers asking me why I … Read More

They Were Hurting Too

They Were Hurting Too

When you are hurting emotionally, it’s easy to be consumed with your own feelings. It’s much easier to despise the person (or persons) that hurt you, than it is to just forgive them and move on with your life. I haven’t felt this kind of hurt in a long time, but I stumbled upon a … Read More

BLOCK

BLOCK

Sometimes I am just tired. I can’t post new and “deep” content all of the time. I like posting meaningful personal essays, but I have been drained and uninspired lately. All of my pictures are turning out the same and I sound like a broken record. I can’t produce what is going on in my … Read More

Looking Out

Looking Out

I don’t usually write about extremely personal experiences, but I feel that I need to tell this… It was just a normal day. I went shopping and everything seemed fine. I was in line checking out and someone stood in line behind me, which is a normal thing. But, the hairs on the back of … Read More

Summer Love

Summer Love

Summer always gives me a feeling of bliss. I love summer and I love how magical it can be. As cheesy as it sounds, anything can happen during summer time. You’re free from school and from the barren winter. Kids are cheerful and adults reminisce. Sweet treats are abundant. Family picnics are common and young … Read More
