I’m Trying Really Hard

My Anti-Bucket List

I've been feeling pretty trash lately, so I thought I would take some time out to focus on positive things and share them with you. So today I'm creating an anti-bucket list, which celebrates all the things I have achieved so far instead of setting new goals for myself.

I Really Hate Mondays

When I woke up yesterday, I knew it was going to be one of those days. One of those days that I've written about, one of those days that set a horrible tone for the rest of your week, one of those days that feels like a hump day but isn't. Aside from the warning… Continue reading I Really Hate Mondays
