Trying Something New

Comfort zones are lots of fun, because, well, you're comfortable, but it's important to try new things every once in a while to progress as a person, so that's what I'm here to motivate you to do this Monday! First, a little on what a comfort zone is: your comfort zone can be a physical … Continue reading Trying Something New

Put Yourself First

Hello lovely readers of my Motivation Monday posts, how is your Monday going? Did you have enough time to get ready in the morning? Have you eaten lunch today? Don't forget that it's important to get a little you time when you can and check in that you're doing alright. This can apply to everything … Continue reading Put Yourself First

If You Could Just Imagine…

Today, in the little world I and the rest of the students from my school live in, is called Imagine Day. Imagine Day is a campus-wide orientation like I expect you'd find at many other universities, where first-years are ushered around in faculty specific groups by older students, awestruck by the ridiculous size of the … Continue reading If You Could Just Imagine…

Finding Motivation from the VMAs

A lot of the older generations claim that we millennials don't yet understand how the world works, and I'm not going to pretend as if we have it all figured out, but they don't understand how our world works, either. Last night were the MTV VMAs. Yeah, it's a bit of a shitshow in the … Continue reading Finding Motivation from the VMAs

A Mid-Summer Assessment

I am just over halfway done with my two month summer, and as I've been reading the section in Grace's Guide (by Grace Helbig) on how to work hard in the professional world, it seems important that I see just how well I've been doing on those summer goals...(I'm honestly not looking forward to this). … Continue reading A Mid-Summer Assessment

9 Things I Learned At Vidcon

This last weekend I had the pleasure of attending vidcon for the first time, and it was AMAZING. I chose the brand new creator track, which meant I got to go to special panels about being a better youtuber in addition to the larger community events like q&a's and social issue panels. It was three … Continue reading 9 Things I Learned At Vidcon

Treat Your(new)self

At times like these I indulge in the material things; in the last few days I've gotten a new phone, dyed my hair, and splurged on some high-end makeup. I hate a lot of things about consumerism, but I sure am participating in it lately. That's because people change, I changed, and it's important to me … Continue reading Treat Your(new)self

Let Yourself Get Lost

It is currently 2:06am on Tuesday. I forgot about Motivation Monday. I was getting all ready to go to bed, packing my things for my train tomorrow morning, and then I remembered: I didn't post anything today. Today was Monday. I always post on Mondays. So I turned my laptop back on, and here I … Continue reading Let Yourself Get Lost

A bit of Monday Motivation

Today's a new day and a new week. Some would say it's the hardest day of the week for that very reason, that now we have to go back to school and work after relaxing all Sunday. While I have done more than my fair share of groaning on a Monday, today I feel energized … Continue reading A bit of Monday Motivation

Oh Oh Oh, Where Does the Time Go?

So I've been blogging for a while now, and I've accidentally gone from blogging two to three times a week down to about once a week. And I'll blame it on the fact that I started making youtube videos three times a week and how much time that takes up, except I don't make youtube videos all three days every single week because, well, I failed at keeping up that schedule as well. I haven't even had a lot of class, and I hardly leave my room, and I've barely written anything for my book since I started it. Where is my time even going?
