The 16th Second

I recently watched a very well articulated speech by a young man, who was the Valedictorian of his graduating class (presuming high school). He brought up something that I thought was especially relevant to me (and probably many others) right now. If you don’t feel like watching the video, essentially he speaks about how he […]

Dammmmmmn Diderot!

Since one of my 2020 “goals” is to figure out my spending/debt, I have been doing some reading into the psychology behind it. One interesting tidbit I read in the book Atomic Habits was about the “Diderot Effect” which is named after the 1700s French Philosopher, Denis Diderot. To sum it up quickly – it’s […]

Little Boxes

Recently, I was thrown a bit of a curve ball, which in turn landed me in a situation I’m not all too familiar with…being “the other woman.” Who knew?

Closing the Chapter

The old saying goes “hindsight is 20/20” and I guess I can’t argue. Although my actual vision is far from perfect, I can say with some degree of confidence that you can’t know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been. It feels a lot like my mind is spinning and I can’t […]
