The One Where I’m Walking the Walk

Okay, really it's more like crawling...but still, we all had to crawl before we walked. The last Letters I posted was titled "The One Where I'm a Fraud," and admittedly it was less than my usual motivating content. I just felt so fake, like I wasn't doing anything for my goals, which is honestly a feeling … Continue reading The One Where I’m Walking the Walk

The One Where I’m a Fraud

I'm a writer...am I? I write essays for school. I write for this blog. It's not very good. I want to write books, but I don't actively write my book often enough to say I write books. So am I a writer? But if I say I just want to be a writer, will I … Continue reading The One Where I’m a Fraud

The One Where I’m Anxious

Anxiety is new for me. I've only had it for about a year now, and it's like not being able to do things you used to as easily. I don't get panic attacks, I just...get tired and anxious and uncomfortable and need to be alone in a secure place. This trip should have been easy … Continue reading The One Where I’m Anxious

Kitties & Cancer

Since this blog gets a lot of my stream-of-consciousness words, here's a video that's just that. My emotional ramblings after finding out my cat is dying of cancer. It's silly, it's so so minute in the grand scheme of the world or even my life. Still, Kirby's been a part of over half of my life, and … Continue reading Kitties & Cancer

Letters From Exchange: Thoughts on the Flight Home

Man, do I have to pee.  That's it, that's the end of my year (10 months, whatever) of exchange, of adventure. I flew to Oslo 10 months ago and had one of the toughest days of my life, sleep-deprived and hungry, pushing my body weight in luggage around a foreign country on one of the … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: Thoughts on the Flight Home

Letters From Exchange: The Beginning of the End

This is it, this is the moment it all starts. Okay, so, "it" has been going on forever because "it" essentially is life, but this moment feels particularly...momentous. This is the beginning of the end of my exchange. On Thursday I finished my last two finals, on Friday I took a short break, and today … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The Beginning of the End

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Starting to Stress

Pretty soon I'm going to have to title these something else, because my exchange is certainly coming to a close.  To just jump in and address the title, I am starting to stress out quite a bit. It's my own fault, really. Well, it's a combination of having a lot going on and procrastinating proactive … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Starting to Stress

100 Days of Self Love

I swear I didn't forget about this Motivation Monday, I just got really into editing my new video. Whoops! Anyway, a few months ago I made a couple of posts relating to self love and specifically my lack of it. The first post was a rant which led to a deep dark spiral of hating … Continue reading 100 Days of Self Love

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Done With Classes

I still have one final exam and two final papers, but as of today I am officially done with lectures in Norway. Once those finals are done I'll be 75% done with my bachelor's degree. Wow. Three years can sure go by faster than you'd expect. I suppose it hasn't helped that I've been moving around … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Done With Classes

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Struggling (Again)

Oh, I know, I'm always struggling. Honestly, what else is new? I guess I just thought that I was doing better after my trip to Paris, and I am comparatively, but I was only really doing well for a couple of weeks. Now it's been a month today that I've been back and the last two … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Struggling (Again)
