I'm about to say something controversial: I think that it's alright to cry at work. Sometimes you just need a good cry! I've cried in the workplace twice, and the second time was quite recently. I won't discuss that situation now because it was fairly recent and I'm not in a space where discussing it … Continue reading It’s My Workplace and I’ll Cry if I Want To
Today I really want to lay low. I want to avoid social media as much as I can, I want to stay in my house, and don't even want to watch the polling results. Today doesn't give me a great feeling.

The Significance It's the last day of the year and also just happens to be the last of the decade. This does feel quite a bit more significant than other new years. I was alive for the last decade turn, and even remember a little bit of it. My parents threw a party, and I … Continue reading New Year, New Decade
Since we last spoke, I have decided to wholeheartedly commit to becoming financially literate. As it stands, I still don't make much money at all, and a lot of it goes toward paying student loans. I'm on track to paying off one of my loans in 5 years, so that means a large portion is … Continue reading A Quest For Financial Literacy
People keep telling me to write, as if it's just that easy. And my uncle tells me to be brave as if it's a thing you can just be. I know that I want to be a writer, but I find it so hard to just put pen to paper... or I guess finger tips … Continue reading A Writer With No Writing
