mental health awareness month challenge
Before I get started, however, I want to dedicate this post to someone I've never met before but who has nevertheless changed my life forever. I want to honor the memory of Lee MacMillan, a "van life" social media influencer whose travel vlogs I've watched for years.

please seek professional help if you are hurting (or maybe if you’re not)
I've somehow found myself in the very fortunate position of being someone to whom people reach out for advice every once in a while, and I want to take on that role as humbly and responsibly as possible. I've received a great deal of anonymous comments from readers, ranging from the kindest thanks to the … Continue reading please seek professional help if you are hurting (or maybe if you’re not)
some very random skincare tips from an adult acne pro
So I know this may seem awkward to publicly write about or to willingly draw attention to , but it’s another topic that I think could do some people a lot of good if it were destigmatized. Is that a word? I hope so. Anyway, I suddenly and unexpectedly had to learn at 22 that … Continue reading some very random skincare tips from an adult acne pro

12 things i’ve learned and 12 things i haven’t at 24
Holy moly I'm 24! What?? That's hard for me to fathom. This is the age a younger me would have dreamed to be engaged. I would not have ever thought I'd be in undergrad still, but hey, I actually like myself these days...which is pretty cool. I'm lucky to go to bed proud of myself … Continue reading 12 things i’ve learned and 12 things i haven’t at 24
am i misunderstood or just a crazy b-word?
This past weekend I recorded a podcast with my friend Lee Carl (if you want to go check it out, it's the post below this one), and he asked me a question that had never actually been directly posed to me. Right in the middle of conversation, he looked me in the eyes and asked, … Continue reading am i misunderstood or just a crazy b-word?
a list of reminders that the world isn’t all bad
I'm putting this on the internet because I just realized I've been desperately combing social media for the past hour seeking out reassurance that I myself could provide.

a list of affirmations to keep you from texing *him*
Okay, so I just found this draft on my blog from like three years ago. I'm not sure why I never published it at the time, but reading it now kinda gave me a kick out of it. I figured there wouldn't be any harm in sharing, especially if you are finding yourself in this … Continue reading a list of affirmations to keep you from texing *him*
don’t let boys be mean to you: a rant on f*%kboys and how I’ve dealt with them
*Disclaimer: I'm going to say a bunch of stuff in this post that sounds like a feminist rant against the tyranny of men. I don't hate men at all or hold them in general to be responsible for the societal trends I mention herein. The boys I'm talking about here are the ones who have … Continue reading don’t let boys be mean to you: a rant on f*%kboys and how I’ve dealt with them
