21 Days: The Struggle To Acclimate To A Healthier (And Realistic) Lifestyle

I've heard that it takes 21 days to get used to a new routine. Now, I'll be the first to openly admit that living a healthy lifestyle has always been far from a priority for me. Eating carbs and watching TV are a couple of my favorite things in life, and dieting and exercise are… Continue reading 21 Days: The Struggle To Acclimate To A Healthier (And Realistic) Lifestyle

Karma

Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm a very open, honest, and unashamed atheist. As a matter of fact, when my husband and I were on our first date, he brought up the fact that he's Catholic. My response was "Oh cool, I'm an atheist!" Like I said, I don't see any reason to… Continue reading Karma

Traditional Corporations Feel Threatened By The Rise Of Independent Contractors, And They Should

If you've read my blog before, you already know that I used to be in corporate America and I broke free from those chains last year to pursue my lifelong dream of self-employment.

This happened… Continue reading Food Delivery: It’s Not Just For College Kids Anymore

Camping Thoughts: It’s OK To Just Do Nothing Sometimes (Actually It’s Awesome)

Before this weekend, I'm embarrassed to say it had been over 5 years since my last camping trip. I used to go often when I lived in rural Ohio, but my lifestyle changed when I moved to the ugly concrete jungle suburbia known as Cary, NC in 2013. In Cary, people buy cookie-cutter houses two… Continue reading Camping Thoughts: It’s OK To Just Do Nothing Sometimes (Actually It’s Awesome)

Escaping From The Concrete Jungle

I'm not a city girl. Before I lived here, I lived in a town so small you could reference "the light" when giving someone directions because there was literally only one traffic light in town. Before that, I lived in a town so small it had zero traffic lights (but plenty of meth labs). There… Continue reading Escaping From The Concrete Jungle
