    4 Ways To Get Through A Rough Mental Health Day

    img_4455

    You know those days that require an extra large glass of wine and a Netflix-binge session featuring Friends? The days where you do so little but still feel so exhausted? The days where you tell yourself “fake it until you make it” but by 2pm you’re crying in your car while blasting Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off”?

    Okay cool, because SAME. The last few weeks (OKAY maybe like month) for me have been.. heavy. And straining. And a test for my mental health. Without diving too much into what has caused me so much pain, the two events that have hit me the hardest have been the loss of my dog, Joey, who also happened to be my best friend. It’s almost been a month and I still to this day cannot go downstairs at night to watch my DVR shows (we always did this together), or look at any pictures of him. It’s still too much.

    The second event that has left me completely devastated happened last Tuesday night.

    Any guesses?

    No?

    I mean it wasn’t a huge deal and nobody’s really talking about it but.. *I say sarcastically*

    The election has rocked me to my core. The two words that come to mind when I think about how this played out are sickening and disgusting. Truly, as a writer and a lover of books these are the ONLY TWO WORDS I can come up with. I was left speechless. A narcissistic man that had the most hate-filled, racially charged campaign with a dose of sexual assault and xenophobia is now the President-elect of the United States of America. I could write an entire novel on my feelings about the fact a sociopath is running our country, but I don’t want this post to be on what is making my recent days so hard.

    3 Ways to Escape Your Quarter Life Crisis Sadness

    qlc-featured

    It’s crazy to think about everything we live through as twenty-somethings. Some of the most crucial and important times of our lives happen during THIS DECADE. It’s insane. And it’s also why the drinking age happens in our early twenties because wine just like, makes everything better.

    #AMIRIGHT.

    I spend a lot of time alone, which also means I spend a lot of time reflecting and thinking of where my life is now and how I got to this place. I also spend a lot of time on social media (#TypicalMillennial), so I am constantly seeing updates from peers about where they are in THEIR life. As I was scrolling through Facebook the other day, in a matter of 20 minutes, I saw two different high school friends get engaged, I saw pictures from a wedding, I saw an end-of-summer couple trip, and I saw pictures from a Bachelorette party in Tahoe.

    Emotional OVERLOAD, from your fellow single twenty-something.

    4 Tips To Help You Turn Procrastination Into Productivity

    How to turn procrastination into productivity

    I think it’s safe to say, procrastination happens to ALL of us. Adulting just happens to include a never ending list of things “To-Do”, and honestly.. A long list wouldn’t be THAT bad if a lack of sleep and higher stress levels weren’t also included.

    So, although it would be much easier to get cozy in your bed, wine glass in hand, and Netflix ON, avoiding your responsibilities can actually make things worse so like.. Don’t do that, K? *says the Queen of Procrastination*

    And I know what you are thinking — Why in the heck are we listening to the “Queen of Procrastination” to help us NOT procrastinate?! Which is a very valid and logical question, might I add. And the reason is super simple:

    I have literally been FORCED to ditch my procrastination ways (Welcome to Quarter VS. Semester College!), and as a result I’ve reaped the benefits of staying on top of my lists, so I want to share them with YOU. If anyone knows the stress and struggles being a #TwentySomething can bring, it. is. me. So today, I am here to help you say bye to the long lists and HELLO to a badass new you who conquers their responsibilities like it’s NOBODY’S business.

    Ya ready? Let’s get into it! (Like now, don’t put off reading this.. Procrastination 101!)
