I've been using a bullet journal since about the middle of May. It took some experimenting, but I finally figured what I liked, and what I wanted. Every month, I lay out my goals, and write down who's birthdays are that month, and what events are happening. July is no exception to that rule. But … Continue reading My July Bullet Journal Spread!

Why Should I Share Blogs If I Do Not Blog?
Because, simply, we blog for you. If you enjoy a blog, please share it. Our pay comes from your views, wether that be pay in cash or just through satisfaction of exposure.

Nothing in life is that simple. If that was case, editing would be null and void. You’d … Continue reading They Lied About Writing Books
This is another one I'm bringing over from my old blog! In hindsight, it seems a little silly the extent to which I worried about being in an ‘adult relationship.” I say adult relationship, because I’d only had two boyfriends – both in high school when I was 14 and 15. My best friend and cousin both … Continue reading My Fear of an “Adult” Relationship in Hindsight

Not to mention probably in the most cliche way possible - I'm a 20 year old college student, who is graduating in the … Continue reading 10 Things to Know About Me
Hello everyone! So, I'm super excited to start this! I've done a little bit of blogging before, but I didn't really know what to blog about. I mean, I still don't know very well what I'm going to do. But I know much better now what I want. Blogging without a purpose is extremely hard. … Continue reading Pins, Buttons and Beyond!
