A Few of My Favorite Things

With today being the first day of school, thought I'd share with everyone a list of my favorite reads, along with some books I haven't read yet (but most definitely do plan on it very soon). Reading and writing are my favorite things to do, you know, when I'm not out doing whatever. I've always loved reading, I read the whole Harry Potter series in like 2 weeks. When I get a really good book, I can't put it down. I haven't read as much as I use to, but I'm back on my bullshit and it has become a good escape from the real world.

Figuring Out These 20 Somethings

At 22 years old I am constantly reminding myself that I'm still very young and I still have lots more growing to do. It's perfectly ok to make mistakes, life is a learning experience.

It is apart of experiencing life, learning that not everyone is going to be the one for you, it is a part of the game. Charging it to the game just means that we take our loses as lessons and we are not discouraged by it and we don't let the negatives, shape our lives and attitudes.

To Each, Their Own

I am an opinionist, by the very definition of the word (if that was a real word). I say what I want and rarely apologize for it. I don’t live a life filled with sorry’s, because most of the time I mean what I say and I won’t apologize if someone doesn’t quite understand my view point. That is why, when you state your feelings on situation, it is called an “opinion”. The funniest thing in the world is stating the unpopular opinion on your social media platforms and everyone (people you’ll never meet anywhere) comes for your neck.
