On a New Year

Here we are, on the precipice of a New Year again. If you’d asked me back in March, I would have said that I thought we would never get here. But somehow, time sped up again and we made it to the end. I’ve expressed my dislike of the NYE holiday in terms of the … More On a New Year

On 2019

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become less and less interested in making New Year’s resolutions and starting off the year with all of these goals and things I want to achieve. I like the idea of it a lot. A fresh start. A new year to be better and do better. But ultimately, year after … More On 2019

Dating & 2018

It’s kind of funny that the word “dating” is in my blog title since it’s rapidly becoming a topic I talk about so little. Right before the New Year, I got an email from Hinge, one of the many online dating apps I’ve tried over the years, asking me to come back. It’s actually one … More Dating & 2018

Farewell 2016

2016 is coming to a close. There’s no doubt this has been a pretty awful year on many levels. Even in some personal ways, it hasn’t been stellar. I think people are forgetting what’s around the corner in 2017 though. I want to hold onto these last few hours we have of this year as … More Farewell 2016

A Year’s Reflections

It’s that time of year again…the impending approach of a new year. After Halloween, New Year is actually my second least favorite holiday. There’s way too much pressure to do something and we’re supposed to feel less than if we don’t have plans or don’t have someone to kiss at midnight. Perhaps it’s my own … More A Year’s Reflections


Happy 2015 everyone! It’s a new year which means plenty of new inspiration to soak up and think about. I had an amazing Christmas break and a New Year celebration with close friends and family (and a lot of snow!) I’ve been reading Amy Poehler’s Book Yes, Please over the past month (highly recommend it … More Acceptance

A Letter to 2013

Dear 2013, Thank you for being one of the most amazing years of my life thus far (I know, I say that to all the years). Thank you for taking me on my dream trip to Ireland. Thank you for introducing me to a wonderful group of people on that trip and for giving my … More A Letter to 2013

So Long 2012!

Oh yes, I’m going to do one of these blogs. I’ve never been a huge fan of all the hoopla involved with New Year’s Eve. There’s always so much pressure to have plans and go out and you feel like you’re missing out or aren’t normal if you don’t. It does so happen that I … More So Long 2012!
