The Importance of Staying Uncomfortable

No matter where we end up in life, the biggest regret we will ever experience will be the regret of not doing something. Not taking risks, pursuing dreams, or pushing our comfort zone.

Why I Won’t Sell Myself to Instagram

While scrolling through Instagram there are a lot of people I would love to be and a lot of people I definitely don’t want to be, and that is exactly why I am happy to be exactly me. I came across this girl who is two years younger than me, still in high school, and…

New York New York

New York is a city you can easily get lost in, and that’s what I did, often. I find the best way to learn a city is to get lost in it, and to see the places you don’t usually intend to wander. This trip to New York City made me change my perspective on…

I Messed Up

The door slammed behind me, consequently waking up everyone within the house, and probably the neighbours, too. The quiet halls felt suffocating as I made my way to my room at the end of the hall. The dark room lit at the flick of my frigid fingers, just as I hold back the first of…

The Odd One Out

The light slowly dims through my window, shadows no longer harsh but lingering in every inch of the room. Music plays in the background as I scroll through the bottomless pit of things which don’t really matter to me. The 10 seconds which I hardly make a seconds work of flashes before my eyes. A…

The Christmas Must and Must Nots

And so, this special time of year has come around again, whiter and slushier than the last. With everything in line for Christmas morning, the stress of the day dwindles down to a dull crackle in the fire, and The Carpenters playing softly in the background. The presents are under the tree, the lights hung around…

a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work. “her ambition was to become a model” If you look on google, that is the exact definition that will come up, and the exact example that will follow; it couldn’t be more perfect. Ambition is something a lot of people…

The Smoke & Mirrors of Instagram

I don’t want to care about numbers any more, I want to care about progress. Quite honestly, now that I look at my life, I feel as though without the numbers, I haven’t made anything worth caring about. When did a number come to define your worth among society? When has having the minimum number…

What You Need To Know About Fitness

After posting a few selfies on instagram, I got a lot of girls messaging me asking what I do in the way of keeping my body looking the way it does, so I’ve decided to answer you all in one article. The first thing I need to make clear is the fact that everyone is built…

I Did NOT Come Here To Be Hit On.

Your eyes burn into my jeans like hot stones in the middle of August, suddenly feeling as though I am no longer wearing clothes, but am standing naked in front of you, vulnerable and uncomfortable. Your grunt and whistles make me feel like I am a dog on a leash, trying to mind my own…

Dear America, please don’t fight.

Dear America, Please don’t fight. Please don’t divide and hate and wreck. In this time of greed, corruption, and segregation, the last thing we need is to fight and to upheave, tearing apart communities and the country as it goes. We have the power of social media to sway communities, and as we have seen…
