Like most people in America, my roommates and I are on the Game of Thrones binge, desperately rewatching every episode in preparation for the season premiere. I’ve watched it all and I know exactly what happens but that doesn’t stop me from feeling all the emotions I felt the first time around. Unfortunately, this also […]Read More Femininity Can Also Be Strength
After yesterday’s tardiness, I woke up early to catch a bus to Miami Beach. I ate my leftover bagel from JP’s and started my day without coffee (gasp!). The bus arrived 20 minutes later than the scheduled time (thanks Broward County) and it took me two hours with a transfer to get to Miami Beach. […]Read More Last Day of The Personal Growth Solo Trip

Saturday afternoon, […]Read More Being Comfortable with Aloneness

I found this so vague. How am I supposed to know what matters to me? I value my friends, my […]Read More What’s Important to You?
I went home this past weekend to spend some time with my family (and because Clean is much closer to my house. Who wants to drive from Chapel Hill to Raleigh at 8:00 in the morning?!) In the middle of all the bootcamp craziness (still can’t believe that was a real experience), getting through my […]Read More Revisiting the Magic
