The Struggles Of Being Indecisive

Hey Peeps! Before I get into this blog post, I just want to let you know that I’ve started to VLOG! I’m finally getting in front of a camera, taking you around with me (including holidays) and putting the voice behind the blog. Let’s hope you like my accent right? Feel free to head on over to my youtube channel where my first vlog is waiting for you. If you liked it, give it a thumbs up and even subscribe?! Who knew I’d be sounding exactly like everyone else on youtube. lol. I am an INCREDIBLY indecisive person most of the time. And it even annoys me. As I said in my previous post, I will not be giving up blogging so why not share some struggles I have daily when trying to make decisions! Let me know if anything sounds familiar… 1.Everything Takes FOREVER A quick shop in Tesco turns into 30 minutes of pure decisions. And that’s just in the reduced aisle. A trip into Superdrug leaves your hand full…

Time To Get Real | Sharing My Struggle

Hey guys! I wanted to share this super personal post today as a therapeutic process for myself. I also want to share because I know there are so many people out there who can relate to my story. This story talks mainly about my struggle as a small business owner, entrepreneur, and a 23 year old trying to get on her own feet. You may have gone through some of the same things, or are even going through it now. Whether your difficulties may be financial, career, or family related, there is always a light at the end. These “low” moments in our life are nothing to be ashamed of and they often allow us to find what we really want out of ourselves, other people, and our lives in general. At 23 years old, this story I’m sharing today has to be the lowest point in my life. I am and always have been an extremely positive person no matter what happened in my life, and this period…

When Women Become Adults

Originally posted on Sex and Living with Your Parents:
I’ll start by saying that the inspiration for writing this came to me when I read this article by The Atlantic, “When are you really an adult?” It’s on my mind a lot. After all, I live with my parents. Unfortunately, I think our culture gets it straight up wrong when it comes to women becoming adults. A gown up woman is what I need to be, or so I’ve heard. If I’m not actively dating anyone, it means I’ve eschewed marriage all together. I’m asexual. I would not be discussing this topic if people were not so damn presumptuous with me on the topic of getting married or having children. Maybe some sense in me a sign of struggle when they look at my tired eyes. The truth is, I am struggling. The difference between their perceptions and my own is that any time I’m “struggling,” it’s because I’m single. It’s like Sesame Street. S for struggle. S for single. They must go together, Eureka!…

A Life Divided (Or, The Struggle Between Living Life and Thriving Life)

Originally posted on You Should See My Scars:
So, I have this problem and I bet a lot of you can relate.  The struggle is this: There are 2 me’s.  There is the Me I want to be, and the Me I don’t want to be….but somehow am so socially retarded that I can’t even be. Let me be more clear: THE ME I WANT TO BE: I have always wanted to make a huge impact in this world.  I have always wanted to have adventure, and love, and have my voice be heard.  I really want to try to change the way the world works because it just seems so shitty right now. THE ME I CANT EVEN BE BECAUSE IM SUCH A MESS: I want friends.  I want to have people to hang out with and to be able to sleep without laying in bed for 2 hours tossing and turning and thinking nonstop.  I want to understand what its like to have a social life. So heres what happens: I try to…

Day 39: Upper Back Pain and Continual Headache

Originally posted on Mission Trimpossible:
For the second night in a row, I passed out on my futon. When I woke up, my neck was killing me. 12 hours later, it’s still bothering me. In fact, it’s so sore that I’d willingly drop $70-$100 for a professional massage. I tried a hot shower, I tried yoga, I even tried neck massages. They helped a little, but my entire neck is still full of knots. I tried a variation of yoga videos today. I was having a hard time getting into them. This Yoga for Neck Relief was interesting, but I couldn’t relax. It was a “silent” yoga theme, so i had to constantly stop and look at the video to find out what I was doing next. It was a bit of a disappointment. I started the yoga for headaches video, but my allergies were having none of it. Finally I settled on this yoga for upper back video. It did help somewhat, but didn’t focus exclusively on my neck. I probably should have just…

What To Do When You Feel Untalented (Or, My Ongoing Struggle)

So I arrived in New Zealand a week ago.  I just moved here from the USA and…. ugh…. well I got strep throat my second day here and it put my life on hold….YOU KNOW WHAT, lets not talk about that. The point is, I’m feeling better now and I have started job hunting and looking for places to live and you know what? …I think I got what i wished for…. and its making me feel like shit. Kiwis (What you call people from New Zealand for those out there who are confused)  are insanely cool and talented people. And it makes me feel like shit.  Like, if you have ever read my blog you know, I constantly feel like I’m lost and aimless in life and just suck at everything I do…. and this country isn’t going to make me feel any better. Take this for example:  I went to go visit a house to live in and meet the flatmates.  They were like, “oh,…
