In Which I Decide on a New Approach to Blogging…

I am sick and tired of writing half-assed posts.

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I was unsatisfied with my posts, that the personal stories I was trying to convey within my blog posts weren’t meeting my own Continue reading “In Which I Decide on a New Approach to Blogging…”

Just Some Links that I Love…

So, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been pretty terrible at participating in Blogging 101 this month.

You know, I’m totally fine with that. I really signed up to meet other bloggers more than anything else, which I was successful at in the first week or so before I got Continue reading “Just Some Links that I Love…”


2014 was a year of learning and growth.

It was a year where everything I thought I knew about myself and the world around me were thrown out the window.

A Thought About the Road Ahead

I’m the type of person that always needs to have a cause. If I don’t, I get bored, anxious, and get to feeling a little worthless.

This cause doesn’t have to be anything huge (say saving the world). In fact, I get more personal satisfaction out of small things that make a difference.

I hope to find a lifelong cause in a future career. Lately, I have been intent on finding that cause well, yesterday. Problem is, I have no idea what I want to do after I graduate. This has been making me rather on edge because I so desperately need to feel like I’m doing something worthwhile or my anxiety spikes; I’m terribly frightened that I’ll go home after I graduate and sit on my bum for the rest of my life. Of course, knowing me, I wont let that happen. It’s still a fear that I have (irrational fears are all too real in Britta Land).

Today, I realized that maybe my current cause should simply be figuring out who I am.

I don’t need to have my future figured out. I can’t figure out my future until I allow Continue reading “A Thought About the Road Ahead”
