Made for Greatness

I think voting in the presidential election is the least impactful thing you can do to effect change. Casting your vote does not make our country great, regardless of your vote.  I’m not saying I don’t think everyone who can should vote, because I do.  But let me explain. First, I did not vote forContinue reading “Made for Greatness”

The Impact of being “Just Friends” on a Young Adult

Most everyone with a pulse has at one time or another been on the receiving end of the “just friends” conversation. It sucks.  Really sucks.  And it leads us to overthinking, self-doubting, and, more than anything, discouragement.  We want to feel wanted.  We want to be affirmed that we are attractive enough, funny enough, smartContinue reading “The Impact of being “Just Friends” on a Young Adult”

Stop Booing Colin Kaepernick

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has dominated the media, dating back to the Preseason when he decided to sit for the National Anthem, and later kneel.

Sharing is not Daring

Let’s talk about millennials. Sure, we can’t paint an entire generation with a broad brush.  Some are deeply conservative, some deeply liberal.  Some are traditional, others much more progressive.  But we have some things in common.  We want to get involved in the political discussion.  We are full of energy.  We are highly tech-savvy.  AndContinue reading “Sharing is not Daring”

You’re Talking to Me?

I always felt bad for those people.  You know, “those people.” The ones whose anxiety and depression struggles were publicized.  The people who had stories written about them on Facebook, detailing their years of struggle with nobody to turn to.  The people who were so mentally unstable that they had to see therapists.  The peopleContinue reading “You’re Talking to Me?”

Fellas: We’ve Lost Our Touch

When I was in kindergarten, a girl kissed me on the cheek.  I can barely even remember it, but I must’ve done something fairly sweet that won her over.  The entire fling was wrapped up in a child-like innocence, one that many teens and young adults would look at and chuckle.  But I would argueContinue reading “Fellas: We’ve Lost Our Touch”

A Recent Graduate’s Guide to Being Alone

I hated college until the minute I left.  I then realized how much I had loved college.  Alas, I can’t go back.  Not to the fairy tale that was undergraduate at least. Now many of my friends have taken completely different routes since graduating college.  Some are going on to further their education, some are staying atContinue reading “A Recent Graduate’s Guide to Being Alone”
