The Mystery of Missing Out.
I was listening to Pandora on a long walk yesterday and a Rascal Flatts song came on called 'Things That Matter, Things That Don’t.' Despite its in-depth cheesiness and the fact I was getting my period that day, it rang so true in my mind. Let’s reflect.
These rules this week are coming to you fondly from two girls after a few glasses of wine, a long day at work, and in the small, messy kitchen of my apartment.
Travel is the only thing you purchase that makes you richer in the end. Travel makes you appreciate home and it’s one of the only times in life where the term “get lost” makes you feel an adventurous comfort.
It’s physically impossible to be everyone’s therapist and saint. I’m not going to make everyone feel like a the Beyonce-rule-the-world all the time.
Some of you might be saying, "Balderdash!" To which I would say, "Hells bells, Trudy!"
My life dream is (and has been forever) to write a novel and track my book tour on Instagram. It hasn’t happened yet and it seems far away, like a little teeny pin of light in a very long tunnel….but it still seems so accessible.
Yes, CBU is a religious school, but not just any religious school.
You have to find time to do the things that take a little time (run errands) AND the things that come effortlessly (five episodes of Parks and Rec in one sitting).
I don’t know about y’all, but “Reading Rainbow” set the precedent for my love of literature early on.
It’s easy for us during this time in our lives to become epically stressed out. But somehow, you have to let it go like a distant fart in the night. Just let it fade away.
The group hang and the one-and-one hang are vastly different human interactions. Your preference of the two probably says a lot about you.
Leslie Knope has inspired me in many ways. But my favorite Knope quote comes in blissful life simplicity: “I am big enough to admit I am often inspired by myself.”
Here’s a rule: only feel sorry for yourself one day of that week. The rest, find that inner wonder woman and press on.
I ran out and bought "The Body Book" and could NOT put it down. There is so much useful information in it for twenty-somethings.
No one is going to judge you if you don’t get married in your twenties. And marriage isn’t the end or beginning of anyone’s world, OK?
If a stack of pens and a full cup of coffee are all you need to bring worlds and characters and scenes alive... Then you're probably one of us.
We shudder at some of our sartorial choices in retrospect, but maybe we should stand by them. You never know what’ll come back in style.
An old lady told the blogger it was “important to forgive.” The blogger then asked, “Who do you have the hardest time forgiving?” She responded saying, “Myself.”
Last weekend I turned 25, and it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. I thought I might feel anxious, or stressed, or depressed. But instead, I found myself looking forward to 25.
I’d like to make a toast to my first apartment. To its cold hardwood floors and stupid, weak shower head. Little apartment, you taught me things.
Life is good. It’s really good. Yes, despite even the weird things that happen throughout the day: awkward work happenings, tough meetings, waking up either hung over or too early, crying because you’re overly sensitive about things.
When I’m at work, I hope for Friday. When Friday rolls around, time can’t fly fast enough for me to be sprawled out like a starfish on my bed. Then, come Saturday, I’m planning my summer trip to New York and packing to move to my new apartment.
