Since starting this blog, one of my main goals was to address mental health, and I've been really candid about sharing my own ups and downs, much of which started, unsurprisingly, when I began my freshman year of high school (what is it about that age???). I was experiencing so much and wasn't quite sure… Continue reading Tuesday Tunesday: Somewhere I Belong
We all have aspirations we yearn to bring to fruition, dreams we pray will turn into realities, and goals we want to achieve, but sometimes the path to getting there isn't paved in gold.

Happy Tunesday, friends! If you follow the Kermit Says... Snapchat (@kermitsays), then you know I kept yesterday's word, worked out, and ate relatively well. I'm looking for an accountability buddy to keep me in check, and if you play your cards right, maybe that could be you!

Among… Continue reading Tuesday Tunesday: Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing

As a theater kid who has seen her fair share of theatrical productions, there are no words to describe my excitement and joy. I have listened to the soundtrack ad nauseam, memorized the lyrics, and even researched Hamilton's life. To say I'm… Continue reading Tuesday Tunesday: The Story of Tonight
Happy Tunesday, friends! We are less than 24 hours away from the big announcement and opportunity I've been alluding to on Snapchat and Instagram, and to say I'm nervous is an absolute understatement. The butterflies are swirling about and my hands are shaking just thinking about it. When I feel anxious and worried, I try to take… Continue reading Tuesday Tunesday: Get Pumped Up!
Happy Tunesday, friends! Chicago has been experiencing some unusually warm weather for the last couple of days. 60 here. 70 there. And while I assume this is because of global warming, I can't help but bask in the glorious warmth. The sunlight feels so good against my skin and puts me in a great mood, and I'm… Continue reading Tuesday Tunesday: An Ode to Warmth
Happy Valentine's Day, friends! Whether you find yourself in a committed relationship, in the beginning stages of a new one, or happily single, I am sending so much love your way.

Happy Tunesday, friends! I absolutely LOVE sleeping in the rain. It's honestly the best way for me to sleep deeply and soundly, and last night was no exception! When I woke up this morning and started getting ready for the day, I couldn't help but listen to my favorite Rainy Day Mix, comprised of… Continue reading Tuesday Tunesday: Rain, Rain Go Away?
