Reflection & Growth

Tomorrow I am turning 25 years of age. To be honest, I have been struggling with this the closer it got. Sometimes I feel like I don't have my ducks in a row, or I should be further ahead then I am now, and so on. All these thoughts solely based on what I see… Continue reading Reflection & Growth

A Book Worth Reading

I ordered this book on Amazon a few weeks ago and just finished it the other day. I like self-help books, especially ones filled with humor and realistic examples. This is by far my favorite (along with You Are A Badass). One thing this book likes its readers to to is create a list of… Continue reading A Book Worth Reading
