Writing Is And Will Always Be A Part Of Me

Writing Is And Will Always Be A Part Of Me

Always & forever a creative outlet.


As I navigate my fourth year in college this coming August, I have realized that the way I have looked at writing has changed throughout the years. I have learned that writing will always be a passion of mine no matter what because my voice is unique. My voice may not be like everyone else's, but what I do know is that those reading (yes you) will understand what I am talking about most of the time.

When I write, I try to think about how I felt when I thought at the moment if I am writing about a personal experience. I think that whether its a personal story or just a fun story that I have to share, it always means something to me no matter what. But I do like when I am able to add in my own thoughts about an issue in society, if it's about technology or a mass shooting, I like to be able to dig into what I'm truly thinking about at the moment. Others may not be interested in what I have to say all of the time, but I do think that those who aren't readers of my content will eventually come around to read my content.

Why do I write? That's a good question that I have a pretty good answer to. To be honest, I like to write because it allows me to have a creative outlet to express myself. I get to tell others how I go about things in my life as an adult and sometimes through the good, the bad, and even the ugly moments too. I like that I am able to be open and honest when I am writing about how I feel towards people in my life, whether it's my family or friends driving me crazy at times (I promise I do love y' all haha).

At the end of the day, I think writing will always be something that I gravitate towards in my life as I keep growing and changing. I hope that you reading this will also find a passion in life to cherish and to make your mark on. I will always be thankful for this platform that I am allowed to express my thoughts freely on. Most certainly, I won't forget about my past pieces that I have written. This is only the beginning!

11 Reasons Why Hiking Should Become A Pivotal Part Of Your Life

It's good for the body and soul.


I was lucky enough to grow up 10 minutes from a national park. This meant that some of my earliest memories were riding on my dad's shoulders through miles of beautiful trails. As a got older, the simple joy of enjoying the fresh air and getting away from the craziness of life that hiking offered only made me fall in love with it more. Now, whenever I have a rough day or just need a break from stress, the first thing that I want to do is hit the trails.

1. Fresh air

Emily Smith

Being cooped up inside for too long can take a toll on anyone. Being able to get out and breathe the fresh air and feel the sun shining can instantly boost anyone's mood!

2. Exercise

Emily Smith

Hiking is a great way to get those extra steps in, and many areas have different paths you can take depending on your fitness level.

3. No electronics

Emily Smith

I am so guilty of going on my phone way too much. Being outdoors allows a break from social media and time to focus on being in the moment and enjoying the amazing world we live in.

4. Scenery

Emily Smith

Hiking allows us to see some of the most gorgeous untouched pieces of nature. It is hard to not be amazed by how beautiful our earth is.

5. Vitamin D

Emily Smith

There is nothing that a little bit of sun can't cure. Being outside in the sun not only gives you a nice summer glow, but it can be so beneficial to our health! Vitamin D helps boost our immune system and gives us energy.

6. Way more fun than going to the gym

Emily Smith

Going to the gym and using the treadmill and other machines provide a workout but can become more of a chore than fun after a while. Hikes are an amazing workout that hardly feels like a chore. So, the next time you are getting tired of the same old routine at a smelly gym, think about taking a hike instead.

7. Stress reliever

Emily Smith

Being out in nature can be such a great break from the "real world."

8. Great way to spend time with friends

Emily Smith

The next time you don't know what to do with your friends, consider going on a hike! There are so many fun things to do, like bring a picnic or watch the sunset. It's a great way to switch up your typical routine of watching T.V. or Netflix.

9. Perfect way to exercise with dogs

Emily Smith

Instead of taking your dog around the neighborhood, switch it up and take them on a hike! It's a great workout for them, and oftentimes, a lot more enjoyable than the daily neighborhood route.

10.  It's free!

Emily Smith

What more needs to be said? Free fun is hard to come by nowadays, so going on a hike can help your bank account too!

11.  It's fun!

Emily Smith

What's not to love about the endless ways to enjoy hiking?
