It’s that time of the year where I check in on all of the resolutions I made at the beginning of 2021! I like to do these mid-year refreshers to see what I need to continue working on and what is near accomplishment if it hasn’t already been completed. My recent haitus gave me a fresh perspective on my blog, YouTube channel, and my personal life. I’ve made great strides towards some of these resolutions, but others have fallen to the wayside (as they do sometimes), and that’s okay!Continue reading “Spoilers! Mid Year-2021 Blog, YouTube + Personal Resolutions”

I turned 28 years old this month. I can’t believe I thought 28 would feel “old.” Sure, my knees creak going up the stairs and sometimes my back hurts for no reason. And my taste buds have definitely evolved to liking veggies and fruit more. And sometimes I look at kids and think “what the hell is happening.” But there’s no way 28 is “old.” Nope, not old. We’re wise now. Well… wiser. I’m sure in ten years I’ll look back and think “What the hell was I even talking about?” And shake my head at my past self. But I’m not there yet.
So instead, I want to share twenty-eight things I wish I had known before turning 28 this year. I decided to split these bits of life advice into 4 categories for those like myself who prefer lists and “bite-sized” information with some explanations mixed in. I have your basic basics, all about social media, what I’ve learned in love and relationships, and some money and career advice I think will help just about anyone. These are just some things that have helped me and apply to my life; it may not apply to yours and that’s okay! Take what you need, and leave what you don’t.Continue reading “Spoilers! 28 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Turned 28”
