Growing Happiness

Remember, happiness is a way of travel, not a destination. -Roy Goodman

Hi guys, today I want to spread some self-love and write about how I’ve changed over the past year and how happy I am with my journey getting there and where I am at now. If you guys want to tell me your stories and tips about how you grow your happiness and your confidence leave them in the comments or tag me in your blog posts, because I would love to read them!

I went into the school year this time around with a completely new perspective on myself and on my life from when I arrived last summer. A lot of it has to do with the fact that I realized some really important things regarding what it means to grow as a person and how happy I have been now that I know how to allow myself to do so. I had a type of epiphany that reminded me that the less I try to cram myself into what other people are, the happier I am going to be, and the less I try to make the days fly by, the more enjoyable the days will be. I realized I have to spend my time allowing myself to grow and finding new excitement in the life I live instead of using my time in high school to create a person that impress colleges and not myself, the happier I am going to be.  Continue reading

Stranger Things Review

So unless you don’t have Netflix (you have no idea what you’re missing) or even social media, you’ve probably heard of the new attention-grabbing eight part mini-series known as Stranger Things, the new Netflix Original starring Winona Ryder. With a 9.2/10 on IMBD and a 94% on rotten tomatoes, you would be surprised to know that it has its flaws. However, in my opinion, it made me like it even more. Continue reading

Top Fictional Boyfriends/Male Characters

Hi everyone! So my friend Emily, ladyemrys.com, and I have decided to start doing some joint blog posts where we post on the same topic but on separate blogs. The first one we decided on was top fictional boyfriends. While mine is all from books (mostly to shorten the list a little), Em has a bit more of a diverse list, so if you aren’t much of a reader, you may be more interested in checking out her list!  Continue reading

A Letter For Dad On His Birthday

Dear Dad,

At fifteen years together, I can easily say that I wouldn’t be where I’m at without you by my side. Not only have you supported us financially, but you’ve supported us emotionally and have always been our number one fan even if our crazy plan doesn’t even deserve an honorable mention. You make me believe I can accomplish anything because you never focus on my weaknesses, you focus on my strengths no matter what they may be. And that makes all the difference.  Continue reading

Six Of Crows Review

Okay, so I’ve been focusing on a lot of adult fiction/nonfiction books lately along with watching a lot of movies and tv, so I haven’t been as involved in the YA fiction universe as I might’ve liked to be. However I was in a bit of a reading slump, so I figured why not go back to YA since (if you pick the right book) is basically like a smooth rollercoaster, easier to read with all the same feelings and emotions. I chose Six Of Crows to dive back into the genre and I don’t regret it one bit. PS if this review seems a little all over the place, it’s just because I really enjoyed it and am still trying to get the feels leave my system.  Continue reading
