    Sushi at 1 in the Morning (Understanding My After Dark Snacking)

    Recently I haven’t been able to sleep. Since I’ve been up I’ve been pacing downstairs in the kitchen thinking of things to write and what tasks I have to do next. All of this should be done during the day, but it’s not. I’m up working and it’s way past anyone’s bedtime. While I was up I began to get hungry and ended up making sushi at one in the morning. After midnight I should be tucked in my covers but I find it rather hard to fall asleep during that time. I get a random boost of energy around eleven o’clock anyway. I have tried some different sleep aids…

    How to Deal with Anxiety

    Anxiety is something that everyone experiences. Even though some people have higher anxiety than others, people still need help calming down when they feel their hearts are in their throats. Calming your anxiety is hard. I used to let my anxious feelings take over. While I panicked nothing was being solved. I have was going around in circles and life was not stopping. I had to learn, to not panic and move on. Don’t focus on what is not happening or what should be happening. I knew that deep down inside I couldn’t control everything although I wanted to. Control is what kept me happy, but you can’t control everything.…

    The Job Hunt Begins

    After graduating college, my parents allowed me to take some time off before I jumped into the work force. During this time I created my blog and found some interesting things to blog about, but image what I could write about at my future job! But here’s the thing, I don’t have a job yet, and looking for a job is a job within itself. There are hundreds of jobs and they all sound nice, but there is always a catch. That’s what I hate about searching, sometimes things are too good to be true. After reading the reviews of some of these places, there were either scams or not…

    How to Take Negative Comments

    I stopped telling people about my plans and ideas because I was annoyed with what people would say. It’s not pleasant being judged for things you are passionate about. I didn’t like to tell people about my career choice because I knew the reactions were not going to be the best. I wanted them to be preppy, and happy but they weren’t. So how did I, or better yet do I handle the negative comments? Well if you asked me a while ago I would say cry in a corner. It was easy to cry, but it’s harder to do what I do now. Now I just brush it off.…

    Stressed? Play Video Games!

    I have already talked about how videos games can help relieve stress. So why am I mentioning it again? Well because it’s true. When I’m stressed I grab my phone and play my favorite games for an hour or so. It’s relaxing because I focus on my game and forget everyone and everything else. That is possible. Sometimes we need to clear our mind and what better way than to put your focus on something else. Most of the time I play on my mobile apps. I’ll play Linda Brown: Interactive Story, Homescapes, The Simpsons Tapped Out, Kingdom Hearts Union X, and Solitaire Tri Peaks. It’s a lot of games…

    I’m Not Stressed

    For the first time in months, I am not feeling like I’m going to explode from the inside out. I have been stressed out my entire life trying to do everything at once. I have put standards on myself that are hard to upkeep. I didn’t know what it’s like to breathe, but I do now.  I always thought that it was something that people who were established did. I couldn’t enjoy life because I needed to be established. I’m learning to live and let live. I know that I’m not letting anyone down except myself. If I continue to put high standards on myself I feel I would have…

    I Can’t Sleep

    Sleep is important and needed to help us get through the day. We should sleep for about eight hours at night. If you are a child you would need a bit more sleep. This is how sleep is supposed to work. I, however,  am feeling abnormal. I can’t sleep. I haven’t been able to sleep for a long time and it’s frustrating. People keep giving me advice on how I should get myself to sleep. Frankly, the advice can be overwhelming. I am trying to find the best method for me. There should be no reason I can’t sleep. No one is coming to get me and I have nothing…

    Ask Him Questions

    I sat next to my small group leader in an aluminum chair listening to young women share their experiences living in Christ. I remember when I first got saved I felt invincible. There was nothing that could touch me because my BFF was Jesus Christ. Everything was amazing, my friends all went to church and they were on board, life was easy. It’s hard for me to say great because I did meet resistance. Not everyone had a positive experience being a Christian. I learned this years later going through college and meeting people who were scarred from past wounds of losing someone or feeling as though God had failed…

    Popcorn Love

    My family loves popcorn. So much that we keep it in stock at the house. My dad will sometimes go to the movie theater to buy their popcorn. It tastes good and I didn’t know that you could buy movie theater popcorn without a ticket buy anyway. My dad eats popcorn every day, my younger brother, Devin, used too before braces and my mom and I make our popcorn. Frankly, I don’t think we could live without it. But I realized something about my family. Popcorn is more than our favorite snack it’s also a gift. For me, it’s how I say I’m sorry. Sounds weird. I make people popcorn…

    Jesus Let Me Break My Fast

    So I prayed to have Christian friends and my prayer was answered. I was more than happy to have the company of warm and friendly people. I think everyone needs friends. Since my mom was doing the Daniel Fast and I epically failed after one day (look it was hard!) I decided to fast something else for twenty-one days: eating out, sweet drinks, and alcohol. This was easier than the Daniel Fast but not by much. I love Coke! I was determined to do this. I had fasted fast food for twenty-five days. But this fast was very different. I really carved everything I couldn’t have. After a couple of…
