If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I’ve hit the biggest creative slump lately. That explains why I’ve barely posted anything on here or on Instagram in almost a month. I tried several times to come up with something, but every time I ended up staring at a blank screen, sighing loudly, and turning off my laptop. Been there?

Feel in a creative rut? Here's what you can do to get through it.

Let’s be honest: this sucks. There’s nothing worse than wanting to get your creative juices out and not having any good ideas. But don’t worry, if I can live through a creative rut, so can you! It happens even to the best of us.

I thought I would make the best out of this situation and try to help you go through a creative rut without losing your mind!  View Post

I don’t like to think about it too much, but eventually, college is going to come to an end. It might be a year away for me, but I know a lot of college bloggers (and college students in general) are graduating this year. I don’t know about you, but just the thought of having to do into the adult world is kind of scary. Hell, I’m going through it right now (even if I’m still a college student), and I can tell you, this is not easy.

With graduation comes living on your own. People don’t tell you this very often, but it takes a lot of things to furnish your first apartment. And there are a lot of big purchases that you have to plan ahead, otherwise, you’ll end up broke in no time. So what are the biggest purchases you’ll have to make after graduation? Let’s take a look.  View Post

I’ll admit it, ever since I’ve started this internship, I’ve been pretty bad at keeping my goals for the new year. I’ve been so focused on surviving now that I’m living on my own and kick ass at this internship that I’ve lost sight of my goals (and most of my goals were blog-centered, as I thought 2017 would finally be “the year of the blog”).

After my traffic has skyrocketed in December and January, I thought that it would easy-peasy to reach all of the goals I had set at the beginning of the year.

BOY WAS I WRONG.

Struggling with reaching your goals? No worries! Click through to read about how you can reach your goals today!

February rapidly brought me back to reality. My stats have dropped, and I’ve let the blog (among other things) to the side. I feel like my internship is stealing all of my energy, motivation, and creativity. And I’m not proud of that.

Am I the only one who ever felt like life was getting in the way of my goals?

But today, this stops. I’m regaining control of my life, and I’m more motivated than ever to reach my goals! So I’m teaching you to do the same, in the hope that you’ll be able to reach your goals, too!

I can’t believe that over a month ago, I moved out of my parents’ house for good and moved into my own place. Sure, I go back home a lot (almost every weekend), but as my sister so kindly put it, I’m now considered a guest whenever I visit. I have now my own place to call home.

Living on your own is not easy. Click through to find out what I wish people had told me before I made the big move!

I have to admit that living on my own is not exactly the way I thought it would be. No matter how many posts you read on the subject or how many people you ask for advice, everyone’s experience is a little bit different. I love the liberty and independence living by myself has given me, but I’m also now just realizing how much I appreciate everything my parents have done and are still doing for me. Everyone has been trying to tell me to expect this and that, but there are a few things no one told me that I would have liked to know before I went out and moved to my own place.  View Post
