I recently came to the decision to embrace what my naturally-athletic body wants to be: a buff, badass bitch. Why did it take this long, you may ask? Well, as most girls, I’ve been conditioned to make myself as small as possible. Being tall and athletic was this “curse” on me for all of my … More Small fo’ What?
Hey Everyone, In my last post, I talked about how a recent trip to the aquarium got me thinking about how we can all be better at saving our planet and the creatures that live on it with us. In this post, I wanted to give you all a list of organizations that I love … More about that #conservationlife
Living in Timor has opened my eyes quite a lot to the issue of conservation. Like Gianna talked about in her last post, many of the problems we find in the environment are caused by humans messing things up in the first place.

Well, hello! It’s May, which in the U.S. of A, means it’s Mental Health Awareness Month. As someone who is quite human, and thus, has and/or will struggle with depression at some point, I thought I’d share a nugget or two of my experiences. **Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional. My nuggets of advice … More Removing the Stigma
Hey y’all. I totally played ya- this is not a post about Avengers: Infinity War. At all. Even though I did go watch it and did get my emotions played with like everyone else. Wow, Marvel. Wow. Chris Hemsworth, my husband, still keepin it tight. 👌🏾 Anyway this is a post about defensiveness. Going further and … More S.H.I.E.L.D.s Up!
*Spoiler alert* I’m talking to you. About your attitude towards you. We all have our slower days, or slower weeks, where it seems we’re making little to no progress in the path towards our goals. I’ono about you, but my slow days happen to coincide with my period weeks. Gatdamn, that dreaded Day Two. This … More Why You Never Say ‘Congratulations’?
