We are all familiar with the saying “The grass is always greener on the other side.”  Of course in plain terms it means you want what you don’t have. As humans, we are always wondering “What if?“ and placing ourselves in imaginary scenarios that we hope one day will come true. Through our childhoods and even through adolescence, I think a majority of us go through a phase where we’re a little selfish and ungrateful. As we get older, we become more appreciative of the opportunities we receive and the things we have. Yet life is in a constant state of evolution; with…

Summer is rapidly approaching (though with this hot weather it feels like it has already arrived), and that means a new list featuring some summery goals. As always, I continue to work on goals from previous months, but I also like to add new things to work on as I think of them.

One of my favorite words in the English dictionary is convenience. I choose flats over heels, a five minute makeup routine over a 30 minute one, and of course I choose a backpack over a purse. Don’t get me wrong; there are days when I like to dress up in heels, spend extra time on my makeup, and carry a purse around. However, most of the time I just like to be comfortable. By backpack, I don’t mean Jansport or L.L. Bean. Think smaller and more stylish. If it has two straps that hook onto my shoulders and it looks good while…
