Here's something about myself: I tend to be an overachiever. Regardless of the situation, I will usually try to go above and beyond what is required. If extra credit is offered, you'd better believe I'm doing it. If I am put in a group project, I am likely to take the lead, or at least… Continue reading Feeling Behind
Let me start this off with something about myself: I have dated consistently since I was 16 in high school (I’m 21). When one relationship ended, I didn’t spend too much time alone before jumping into the next. I think a part of me was afraid of being alone.

Settling down means getting married, living in one area, and staying at the same job for years. It's something I thought I've wanted… Continue reading will i ever settle down?
It's not easy realizing for me to admit I need help. I actually would much rather get lost in a grocery store or somewhere out in the wilderness (okay, maybe not so much that) than have to ask for guidance. This is what has led me to a couple weeks of hospitalization after not taking… Continue reading Recovery.
