11 Thoughts I Had This New Year's Morning

After a night full of celebration, these are the first thoughts that crept into my mind on the first morning of 2016.

1. I absolutely do not want to go the gym.

I told myself I would work out more this year, I really did. I'm just so not feeling it at this very moment.

2. But I probably should go to the gym (even though there's basically nothing I'd rather do less).

Because I have to start somewhere, right? I have to at least try with this New Year's resolution.

3. Which leads me to conclude that New Year's resolutions are overrated.

I can make a resolution anytime I damn well please, I don't need to wait for the new year.

4. This bed is my absolute most favorite place in the world.

So much for kickstarting the new year. I don't want to even get up, let alone kick anything. Hence not going to the gym.

5. It's a new year... Wait, it's also Friday; anything important can definitely wait until after the weekend.

Weekends are for Netflix and pajamas.

6. I want that leftover piece of chocolate cake.

I'm not condemning anyone who is on a diet as a New Year's resolution, I'm just saying I'm not part of that crowd, and the chocolate cake was really good.

7. Here come two months of screwing up the year when I write the date.

It happens every year, at least, a five can turn into a six kind of easily. Hopefully.

8. Last night was totally overrated.

We all make a big deal of New Year's Eve, but it's never as fun as I want it to be.

9. Damn, I should probably do all those things I told myself I would start when the new year started.

There's no time like the present (but let's be honest, the year changing isn't quite as motivating as I thought it would be).

10. Today feels basically exactly the same as yesterday.

Except for maybe with a bit of a hangover, depending on what you did to celebrate. But in actuality, it could be any other day, except the date is Jan. 1.

11. Hopefully, this year will be even better than the last.

I tell myself that every year, and I'll do my best to make that true. Adventure on.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
