Make it a life list…not a bucket list.

I have been looking forward to the year 2018 since I started high school. Why? Because it finally meant that I would be free of school, almost free of studying and homework, and finally free to begin a job that I love, and perhaps even earn a well-deserved paycheck.

Thoughts from a third year grad student.

A silent killer: Overthinking.

Let me give you a visual representation of what overthinking is.

Combating anxiety with Grounding

As a graduate student, I am no stranger to anxiety.

This makes me so happy, because in such a short time, I’ve come to find something that I love doing.

I started this blog as a new outlet for myself. I was going through a lot of personal stuff that was making life slightly challenging. It is safe to say the I have been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions and honestly typing out my feelings helped. I used to blog in the golden days and found myself re-inspired to begin my own personal lifestyle blog where I could write about anything and everything.

I appreciate the support I have gotten thus far from friends, family, and my new followers. I hope to grow as a writer, blogger, and strong independent woman. I am still a newbie to this, but I hope to learn the tricks of the trade and better myself.

In the meantime, I hope you continue to stick around and check back every now and again. I adore all of the support!

Much love, 

J.L.
