How to Navigate –
My god. How is it earthly possible that today is 24? Is it just me, or does it seem like the older you get, the quicker time slips right through your fingers?
Okay. So let’s say you bought a house, or signed a lease for a new apartment. Or maybe you’re just over it with your Craigslist–or college–furniture and are thinking that it’s finally time you sold it all (or burned it) and moved on. I found myself in one of these situations a few months ago
I was listening to a podcast on my way to work this morning (Reply All, if you wanted to know), and the storyline focused around this man who–for the sheer enjoyment of it–has spent every Sunday evening for the past 9 years fixing grammatical errors on Wikipedia.
A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went to an Argentinian cooking class in Culver City (HipCooks, if you’re in the market for a fun afternoon and a delish meal. Highly recommend!).
Recently, I moved into a small-ish studio in west LA. And, to top it all off, I took the plunge and moved into a studio with another human being–my boyfriend. At first, you probably wouldn’t dare consider moving with someone else into a space with nowhere to hide.
We live in a social media-driven, impatient, insatiable age where the hunger to constantly be experiencing and sharing things is as much of a common denominator as it is a burden. Really though, I think that everyone in their 20s right now feels a similar insatiable hunger. A desire–a need–to go out and do everything, be everywhere, and try new things constantly.
This post is one small attempt at breaking the "social media wall" and giving you some context behind the images you see. So, hi there.
How many of you find yourself feeling like you don’t deserve to be where you’re at in your life, or like you aren’t good enough to go for the thing you want, so you keep putting off even trying?
You know what I hate about the beginning of the year? The sun is finally beginning to reveal itself, the days are getting longer… and it’s still cold as all hell outside. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a sucker for winter and I love the summer with all my heart, but the seasons in the middle confuse me. Just pick ONE mood and stick to it, weather!
2016 was rough, wasn’t it? I didn’t really feel compelled to dwell on shortfalls and negatives from this past year. In fact, in my own personal bubble I call life, 2016 was a damn good year. But, everywhere on social media, there it was.
