Where I Really Belong

Ever since I can remember, I’ve felt like the dad of my friends. Essentially, that means I’m the one who takes care of everyone and everything. I make sure we are on time to the movies, have all eaten, and give the most advice. In all humbleness, it means I’m the most mature. Girl friend … Continue reading Where I Really Belong

I’m a Complainer.

I’m a complainer. As much as I hate to admit it, it’s true. Whenever people ask me how I am or how it’s going, I tend to respond, “I’m hanging in there!” or “Oh, it’s going!” I’d like to say I don’t know why I respond as such, but I do. It’s because when I … Continue reading I’m a Complainer.

Letting It Go

Today's the day...the first day of classes! This semester is bitter sweet.

Stop Trying To Be Happy

Hi everyone! I can't believe it's already Friday, but I'm definitely not complaining. I got to sleep until 8am this morning, which felt amazing. It's also a long weekend, which means no class for me on Monday! Today’s post is a little different. Instead of sharing a realization or thought, I want to talk through … Continue reading Stop Trying To Be Happy

Sacrificing It

It's finally Friday! As you read this, I'm on the road to Florida Gulf Coast University to present at the Florida Collegiate Honors Council Research Conference.

Why I’m Striving for Happiness – 3 Tips
