I’ve decided that the life of this blog has come to an end. I’ve reached a point in my life where I have life-changing decisions to make, and the decisions I make today will influence the rest of my future. With that said, I need to focus on finding my “niche.” What makes me happy?… Continue reading Au revoir
Last August I posted about My Constant Battle. Since then, I’ve realized depression isn’t my only battle. I battle with both depression and anxiety, which are frequent partners in crime. The evidence is clear in my previous post. That post is the buildup of my anxiety about being depressed and being diagnosed with depression. Today, I finally worked up… Continue reading I Asked for Help Today
According to my college Customs and Cultures class, if you were to ask someone from Asia what traits make them the best candidate for a job, they would respond, “I’m not the best.” For many years, I, too, have had a similar mindset. I never knew how to answer that question. It is a difficult… Continue reading Six Times I Was Awesome
The value of our college degrees is decreasing. More often than not, employers are seeking individuals with M.S. or even PhD degrees to fill their open positions. Does a measly bachelor’s degree or servant-level associate’s degree hold any value at all in today’s education-driven world? Does your degree matter, period? What does school teach us? As I… Continue reading School: Is It Worth It?

Now, it’s virtually impossible to be the nazi I once was, as the article below points out, uses of words are always changing. You just can’t keep up with the changes in… Continue reading FYI, Grammar Nazis…
…but I do. We all do, right? When I look at the big picture, though, I realize my problems look silly when measured up to a lot of people’s issues. So what if my dad died when I was four? Some people never meet their dads. Some never meet either of their parents. So what… Continue reading I can’t complain…
When I first started driving, I became accustomed to getting lost. I’d lived in the same town for sixteen years, yet I’d never driven anywhere by myself and I’d apparently never paid attention how to get from point A to point B. I would get lost in areas I frequented regularly growing up, and it… Continue reading If you don’t succeed, try again
I say it all the time: “I’m undefined. I’m not defined.” It’s been in my various social media bios. The line originated from Natasha Bedingfield’s song Unwritten. In the eighth grade, we analyzed Unwritten in music class. I decided then that those lyrics described exactly how I felt about myself. The song Unwritten is an ode to my life. “I… Continue reading I’m undefined
Anyone who writes knows writing is time consuming. You open your word processor, and five hours can pass in the blink of an eye. Some people have no problem choosing a project and sticking to it. These are the people who are already successful writers. Many of us who are unpublished aren’t unpublished because we… Continue reading Deciding What to Write
First and foremost, I think support groups, both online and offline, are great opportunities for individuals to connect with others who are going through similar life challenges. I think they’re a great way to help you realize you are not alone, and everyone needs that realization at some point in life. I’ve recently become cognizant… Continue reading Depression Support Groups–More Harm Than Good?
