The stress involved with “making the right decisions” came up in a conversation I had with a very good friend this weekend. We are both facing huge, life-altering decisions and having to hope that we make the right choices for both our present and future selves. I’m here to tell you (and also to keep reminding myself) that no matter what you choose, it is the right decision.
Once again, my relationship has reached an impasse. A big, scary, hard-as-rock, impasse that neither of our inexperienced new-adult brains have no idea how to navigate around.

I would rather have four quarters than… Continue reading Friendships are Hard Now That We’re Adults

I am a recent coffee convert in the past two years, having only started drinking the magical caffeinated elixir after I graduated college and started my big-girl career. Something about having to look professionally presentable by 8am every, single weekday triggered the need for caffeine. And of course now, I can’t start my morning (and sometimes… Continue reading The Coffee That Makes My World Go ‘Round
