A Book & Series to Read & Watch

In light of everything going on, I toyed with the idea of dropping weekend posts. I’m going to keep them… for now, but I imagine a few posts here and there will be a little “fluffier” than normal. I’m taking things one day at a time in terms of content to keep things as fresh…

Cozy (Spend Responsibly)

As you know, I do product round ups every other Saturday. This is going to be a two-fold post. Maybe actually three-fold. I want to preface this by saying I’m sure I’m not going to say this perfectly. I’m trying my best but I’m also operating with a little 1) We need to spend responsibly….

I’m still ultimately trying to keep things positive and I’m taking my content calendar one day at a time. One thing that I wanted to mention today…

You’re Working From Home… Now What

Lean Into Social Distancing

I am not a scientist or doctor who specializes in infectious diseases. But I am an extreme introvert with not-so-minor social anxieties and friends who live in different states. I can speak towards social distancing like an expert because it’s kind of my life. I’m not making light of this at all, by the way,…

Diary No. 27

The past two weeks have been pretty low key. I had been following the Coronavirus news and was beginning to sense that things were going to be drastically changing in the US. I started to feel a little insane, trying to balance being level-headed and smart about things while also preparing for what I thought…
