The Comparison Trap

The Comparison Trap

Everyone’s situation has its own unique code… DNA if you will. No situation is the same and it shouldn’t be the same. Could you imagine everyone living the same life and having the same issues and going through the same problems – boring. Thank goodness life is no where near “take a right, then take your next immediate left”. But with things being so different and unpredictable for each individual, it leads us to naturally compare our triumphs to others (without putting their background noise into consideration).

How Much Is Too Much?

How Much Is Too Much?

Who am I to say that you shouldn’t be on social media as much as you are? I mean it’s routine for Christ sake. You wake up from the obnoxious sound of your alarm clock and roll over reaching for your phone in hopes of having enough time to get ready for the job that you’re not too excited about.

The Weekend of Turning 24

The Weekend of Turning 24

We have made it to the official year – Kobe year! Although my birthday was actually on a Thursday, it was only right to extend it into the weekend. It’s crazy to think that I remember my 18th birthday like it was last Wednesday and it’s even more bizarre to think I wasn’t suppose to see 22 (I proved them wrong).

Best Blogging Tips For Bloggers

It’s amazing to think that people make a living from blogging. It’s become this phenomenon that is so much more than some dinky website you created in 7th grade to write about your crush in hopes that no one would see it. We’ll call that Sugarcane5987 or something irrelevant to the blog itself. Times have changed and it’s amazing to think that blogs are no longer seen as an online journal but as an advertising platform… A platform for each individuals brand.
