Unfiltered

You’ve likely heard the phrase over and over again: don’t believe everything you see on social media. This could apply to pretty much everything online, from the content that people choose to post, how they choose to post it, what they include and leave out, and who they choose to share it with.

Struggle with Self-Acceptance

So as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I struggle with binge eating, depression, and anxiety. Some days it can be SO mentally draining. A lot of my closer friends don’t share the same struggles that I do, or none at all. Thinking about this during some of my lows make me wonder, “why me?”

New Career Pressure

I recently started a new stage of my education where I am out working in my prospective field of study. I was so excited to get out and start learning and be able to get away from my computer screen.
