We Wear Pink in October

breasecancerawarenessmonthCancer is a word no one wants to hear.  We can effectively compare such a word to Voldemort.  It shall not be named for it is feared and hated.  October is the month that we throw on our pink shirts and scarves..not only on Wednesdays.  I am proud to say that my aunt is a breast cancer survivor and she is one of the strongest people I know.  I had the opportunity to accompany her a yearly Cancer Survivor Day that takes place in Jersey City.  It really is inspirational to be surrounded by people that you know have gone through some terrible hardships in their life.

Fall-ing for Stripes

Falling for Stripes

It never ceases to amaze me to see stripes nearly every season.  I am a sucker for stripes.  Every time I walk into a store, I find myself gravitating towards a mound of striped shirts.  I am a moth to a light bulb.  They go with pretty much anything and they really are what I consider, a basic.

Interview with Daniel W. Koch: Published Author at 20

Interview

 

Hello Spice Girls & Guys,
I had the pleasure of interviewing a young author who I found to be both inspiring and interesting!  I always love it when I find a diamond in the rough.  In this day and age, not many children are reading or find themselves inspired by writing.  Daniel managed to publish four books..all on his own.  I also was thoroughly pleased to find that we both had several similar tastes in shows and books, which made it all more exciting! If you want to read the interview and get into contact with Daniel, read on.  He is truly something! If you want some great summer books to read, I would recommend checking out his books, which are available on Amazon.com.  Thank you Daniel! Read More →

Photo Inspiration

After reading All Work, No Pay by Lauren Berger, I decided to spend a good hour clearing out Facebook things that might be taken the wrong way by a potential employer. (I didn’t find much, mind you.) But while I was going back on the time line..all the way down to 2009–when I was a sophomore in high school, I was shocked. I may have not been stick thin, I never have been, but oh my god, I looked healthy! I was slightly overweight..but a lot thinner than now. 

I felt a twinge in my heart and looked down at myself, of course I want to be healthy, of course I want to be a good weight, but it’s just so hard. I’m a crash dieter, I hop on one day and the next, I’m already slipping off. I can only blame myself as I try to remember when my weight started going up. I think it’s when my social life began to take off, and I went out to eat a lot more. Before then, I would only eat home-cooked meals and stay inside, I wasn’t exercising much but my stress wasn’t as high so my food intake wasn’t affected either.

I am going to print out this photo of myself, where I see no belly bulge, no arm fat, and no double-chin. I am going to put it on the wall right next to where I sleep so when I open my eyes, I know that this is my goal. It will be my inspiration.
