Too.Much.

Too.Much.

Welp, for the first time I’ve definintely bit off more than I can chew. For the first time in my life, I just failed a class. By 6 points (out of over 1000). Disappointed in myself doesn’t even begin to cover it but also, the […]

Selling Clothes: ThredUp vs. Poshmark

Budget Fail and Budget Win

Budget Fail and Budget Win

This week I had a budget fail that really stuck out to me as a “stupid tax,” but then also a budget win that almost made up for it just a day later! These were both pretty unique things so I figured it might be […]

Working 9-5 Feels Impossible After College

Working 9-5 Feels Impossible After College

I’ve been working at my full time job for a bit over year (I was promoted so really it’s only been six months in my current position). I’ve sometimes felt like I can’t stay focused at work all the time. Or more accurately, like there […]
