Recently, I experienced an exchange with my manager that kind of spoke to me. I needed her insight on how I should respond to a certain situation. I knew in my mind that I could attempt to resolve the situation on my own but I wanted to take an extra step by getting her input first. My manager always encourages me to ask questions and elicit her input anytime so this was one of the few times I wanted to take her up on her offer.

For those of you who don’t know, I work as a technical writer for a pretty large tech company. Because this company has a campus that is so far from where I live, I get to work from home throughout the week.
There are times where I might come into the office for a face-to-face meet but for the most part, I enjoy the luxury of cracking my laptop open and clocking hours without ever having to leave my home. Sounds pretty cool, huh?
I’m not gonna lie, I absolutely LOVE the luxuries that come with working from home! I wouldn’t trade it for any other job… except maybe a job that requires me to travel internationally… maybe.
Like anything, it has its upsides and downsides. If you’re curious about working from home and all that it entails, I’ve put together a list of pros and cons that I very personally relate to. Could working from home be ideal for you after all? Let’s start with the pros! Continue reading “Pros and Cons of Working from Home as a Writer”
I am going to try to be as transparent as possible in this post, however, I am not at a place where I can be very explicit. I hope I can be as helpful as possible to those of you contemplating therapy and for those of you who just want to know what it’s like, keep on reading!
Reaching the point where I would book my first therapy session was extremely difficult. Therapy in itself isn’t really a taboo topic, but somehow when the conversation morphs into *you* needing therapy, it feels awkward. Continue reading “My Experience in Therapy”
It wasn’t until I came back from Dallas last Thursday evening that I realized the only pictures of the trip I shared via social media were of food and food places. I figured that I should probably disclose on the blog that I did not solely visit Dallas for the food… even though that still would’ve made an awesome trip considering the restaurants we found!
We adventured to a few really neat places while in the area, but I wanted to share all of that in another post. This post is all about the amazing vegan food we got to try during our trip! If you are ever in Dallas, be sure to check out these places. You won’t be disappointed! Continue reading “While in Dallas,TX: 4 Vegan-Friendly Eateries You Need to Try”
As I am sure many of you have heard by now, on January 2nd, Logan Paul (a popular YouTuber for those who may not recognize the name) received widespread backlash about a video he posted in which he filmed a corpse hanging from a noose while exploring Japan’s Aokigahara. The Aokigahara is referred to as the “Sea of Trees” and it’s more popularized nickname, Suicide Forest, since it is the second most popular place in the world for one to commit suicide in.

Most people advocate vision boards because of something called the “Law of attraction”. I personally am not a big fan of this law for two reasons: The first being that God’s will is inevitable even in spite of my own (1 Thessalonians 5:18 & Jeremiah 29:11). The second reason is that all good things come from God (James 1:17). I personally cannot accredit the universe for all the great things Jesus does and is doing not just in my life but in the lives of others!
