23 Lessons in 23 Years

April 23, 1994

I am trying to get used to this new jacket I was given: the year of 23. It seems a little big and roomy and it is not one that I have quickly clung to like I did the year of 22. 22 was a sparkly coat, fun and exciting with some swanky slacks to pair with it. Perhaps 22 was portrayed to be the “cool year” and Taylor Swift is to blame for it. My former 21-year-old self quickly embraced the twin digit number with open arms. But 23? 23 seems grown up, serious, has all its ducks in a row.


The College Experience

We’ve all been told at one point or another in our lives that college will be “the best four years of your life.” 

So what happens when college is not like this? What happens when it rains 4 out of 7 days a week and you have to work weekend nights while everyone else goes out to party? What happens when you hate your roommate, you’re failing chemistry, or you simply feel you don’t belong?


Acts of Self-Love That Will Change Your Life

We all have our weaknesses.

I, for one, am too hard on myself. I’m obsessive. A perfectionist. It’s easy for me to criticize or blame myself. Being kind, loving and understanding to ourselves doesn’t come as easy. Why? Because for a lot of us, it’s a habit. We put ourselves down, without even thinking about it most of the time.
