How The Rain Affects My Days

When it rains I can be the most productive person in the world and really get shit done, or the laziest couch potato ever. It really is mind blowing how much the weather can affect one's mood and outlook on life. On the days I have a million errands to run, a job to drive to, or a flight to catch, rain is the absolute worst.

There's nothing worse than running errands in the pouring rain and getting your freshly washed hair all messed up (I know the ladies reading this can relate). I also honestly cannot tell you the number of times my flight has been delayed or even canceled due to rain. If I'm not at home watching Netflix and wrapped in a cozy blanket with a pint of Halo Top in my hands, I hate the rain. The rain puts me in a gloomy mood and makes me not have the energy or desire to do absolutely anything.

The time I enjoy the rain is when I'm hitting the hay. I love the sound of rain when I'm going to sleep because of how calming and soothing it is. To me, the rain hits me like a lullaby hits a baby that's being rocked to sleep; it knocks me out and puts me right to sleep. My friend has a rain sound machine that she plays every night to put her mind and body at ease. The machine comes with the option to play a variety of rain sounds.

For example, her top two favorite options are rain dripping onto the leaves and rain droplets hitting against the window. When I was a child I used to hate thunderstorms, but now my best night's sleep is during a thunderstorm.

I think a lot of people have a love/hate relationship with the rain. As I'm sitting here typing this article, I know the rain is negatively affecting my mood today. I have work later this afternoon and a huge to-do list; it's a 100% chance of rain all day. Wish me luck and let's hope the rain goes away by tomorrow!

We Are a Human Race, Not A Political Race

It is time to we stop spreading our culture of hate.

Hate is a word that has begun to describe this generation and the actions of people in the world. Hate has crept into public speeches, social media, hanging presidents/decapitated heads and our hearts. It has blinded how we see one another and tainted the words we use to talk to others. Political parties are turning into cat fights over who is right and frankly ruining any chance of unity in this country.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.
