To My Sister, My Gorgeous, Powerful, Inspiring Sister

There is no relationship like the one between sisters.

To My Sister, My Gorgeous, Powerful, Inspiring Sister

I stumbled across a letter I wrote to my older sister two years before she got married. I think the letter remains open to all little sisters watching and looking up to their big sisters in awe, and to every girl who should feel empowered about being forceful and bold.

To be exact we are 10 years and 12 days apart and because of those 10 years and 12 days, I’ve been able to witness, in the shadows, some of your greatest triumphs and the greatest pitfalls in your life. But, your pitfalls have always led to triumphs and your triumphs have always led to greater triumphs.

The journey you’re about to embark on will lead you to encounter many more pitfalls and because of those, many more triumphs will come. In the words of Ernest Hemingway, “Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”

So, live forcefully. Be a force of nature wherever you may be led to and let your force be a force of passion and elegance that is distinguished within the journey on which you’re bound to embark.

With the utmost love and thankfulness, I will always be with you, witnessing your triumphs and pitfalls. I am so thankful to be the one who can see you becoming greater with every turn. Thank you for being my sister.

The only thing I could ever ask of you is to be yourself and let yourself manifest into whomever you were created to be, rooted in your purpose and growing in your spirit. Be so many things, because you can be that.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.
