October and especially Halloween is a special month to get in contact with your third eye; the veil between worlds is thinning, the Celtic year is ending, and we are heading into a new quarter of the wheel. This all means that new beginnings and possibilities are on the horizon.
“Being your best introvert is knowing yourself and being okay with the fact you are an introvert. Knowing you don’t have to change to have friends. Or have career that you want. Or relationship that you want.”

Also she labels it a book she wished existed when she was at each peak of her life.
Is everyone excited about the Great American Solar Eclipse? I know I am and we all should be. Any eclipse is like a reset button for our spiritual selves and a solar eclipse will help turn that mixed up energy (thanks to the retrograde) into something more useful (well at least I hope it does for me). But August 21st is also a New Moon, specifically the second Leo New Moon in the season. New Moons mean new beginnings, setting new goals, and cleansing oneself (or tools) for the new cycle. With all that being said here are some ideas to make the most of your double fun day.
I AM NOT YOUR FUCKING PUPPET ANY LONGER.
It is finally here. My poem that I promised y'all so long ago. This is also the longer version (and blunter) of my Ms. Veteran America audition. So, here it is my poem and I hope y'all appreciate it. It is a rare occasion that I show my artistic side.

Yeah, I am complaining about getting old. I do not care...
Well, I have finally baked my first loaf and let's just say…it sucked. Horribly. I let the dough hang out for a week in the fridge, I did not proof it correctly, and I didn’t grease the Dutch oven (in my defense the recipe I was using didn’t say to). So here I am to give you my tips and tricks on navigating from starter to finish (get it…).

I am all about the athleisure wear, but especially when it comes to wearing yoga/workout pants. Why might you ask? Because I can be the laziest person in the world and that is not just a comment I make to make myself seem cool. When it comes to fashion, I can be one lazy motherfucker.
I have finally come off the Thanksgiving coma and we have finally finished the turkey, unfortunately there are still tons of sides left (did someone say cranberry stuffing waffles anyone?). It is finally time to wrap up and post my Pinterest-centric Thanksgiving.
So I am sure a lot of you have spent a pretty penny during Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, but today is Cyber Monday. That means there are tons of deals for those who don’t want to venture to the mall or for those who could not find what you needed in the store.
When you open up your favorite magazine around the fall time, they always show tables dressed to the nines with delicious foods and beautiful displays. Sometimes those displays can be a little overwhelming, plus you wonder how the heck the person who puts that on their table has the time to make it. Well, I have some top tips for making the best display without overcrowding your table, plus they are fun and functional and work with you and not against you in the long run.
Today’s post is about being a responsible adult and studying like you should when you are a non-traditional student like myself. To say going back into the classroom was a struggle is the understatement of the century.
