Hello! I hope you all had awesome weekends ;o) I’ve been thinking recently about sacrifice and how much we should be willing to give up for something we love. Recently, I had the AMAZING opportunity to see Hozier live, but like every other concert I want to see, it was on a “school night”. In order […]

In Real Life: Seeing Is Believing

Hi Everyone! So, I’ve recently had the opportunity to see Imagine Dragons in concert. I KNOW. It was amazing. I try to go to 3-4 concerts a year. Why? Because there’s nothing like hearing music live. I’m not sure what happens, but as soon as you’re singing along with everyone to a song you’ve heard […]

Breaks and Binges

Taken a bit of a break to read a ton of books or watch every episode of a series–binging on something. I have the perfect personality to be a binge-reader or binge-watcher. […]
