“Anger at the Self”

I wrote the below post on August 6th, 2015. It has been sitting in my draft since, because I couldn’t get myself to click the Publish button. I wanted some sort of resolution or helpful conclusion, but I couldn’t find one. I’m not sure if now, three months later, what I’ve found is my resolution, but I…

New New New

Each time a meet someone new, even now, and they ask if I’m from Albany, I always say “no, I just moved here.” But really, it’s been almost a year. I don’t think I’m allowed to say “just” anymore. I’m having lots of new experiences, even though it’s been just about a year here. Today…

#WhyIVolunteer: A Flashback Friday

In the fall of 2009, I started up at Geneseo. I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I grew up (I still don’t), and I certainly didn’t know how I wanted to get involved on campus…or, that I wanted to at all. I decided to run for the president of Jones Hall Council,…

My Coaching Story

Over the weekend, I finally did something that has been on my “goal” list for a while. I sent a newsletter out to 50 people. It doesn’t sound like much, but I was pretty excited about it. I’ve been working as a Beachbody Coach for a while now, and when I first started out, I…

This weekend was one of those “dangerous” weekends I was warned about when I was a member of Weight Watchers. We would talk about all the food that was going to be in front of us as we were surrounded my family and friends, and all talk about the strategies we were going to implement…

Apps for Penny Pinchers, or Twentysomethings

My financial situation is always something that sits in the back of my head. I’m really fortunate, though, to always be “fine.” I never have $0.00 staring at me on my bank statements, I don’t get nervous about making my rent, I can have fun with friends, and have even started to pile up a…
