My top 4 tips for living with Depression

Hey bloggers, readers, First, let me say that I understand none of this is easy. Depression isn't just sadness, it's an overwhelming feeling of dread and doom that weighs on you. It's a shadow over your world that sucks light from everything you love, and the life from you. In this post, I want to… Continue reading My top 4 tips for living with Depression

Into the Darkness

Like anyone else, I have a side to me I’d rather not let be seen. A side I myself hate to see. And I’d be lying if I said I don’t believe there are shared similarities between each of our faces we keep hidden. We all have a creative side to our brain, and we… Continue reading Into the Darkness

Laguna Beach to San Francisco! πŸš— πŸŽ’

Since I started blogging a year ago, I’ve also wanted to start a travel blog. Sadly, I’m 24, have a full-time job, and am also borderline broke. So...

Blog Tour!!!

Traditional publishing is such a pain in the ass. Landing an agent seems like such a stroke of luck. Well...skill and dedication too. But mainly luck. As of right now, I'm going to consider myself back on the path of self-publishing. I've been on this path before--but was rather ill-prepared last time. This time I… Continue reading Blog Tour!!!

Accept Change

You have to go with the flow. Adapt. It's the only way to survive. Forest Gump said, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get." Well, actually, it was his mother who said that, but you get the point. That phrase--I like it. Personally, I've found life to be… Continue reading Accept Change
