'Scuse me while Im absent

That incredibly mixed up feeling in your stomach when you feel too many emotions at once and want to run or puke.

Mountains and Nature

Ever since I was very young, I had an affinity for nature, or so my parents told me. As I grew, so did my curiosity and fondness for the outdoors. It wasn't until I reached high school that I started looking inward and exploring the reasoning for my pull towards the mountains and forests, rivers and oceans, rocks and fauna.

Orgaic Travel Essentials (PART 2)

Vitamins & Supplements

Travelling is a very time consuming and mind-occupying activity that disrupts our typical routines (in a good way), but can often lead us to not pay as much attention to our food intake/supplementing our body with nutrients.

An Ode to People Who Pick Themselves Up

Life can be wonderful. Absolutely blue-skied, soft-breeze, I-feel-damn-good wonderful.

My version of "F yea, life!"

But life can also be utter and complete shit. It will pick you up to a height you thought you'd never be scared of, and drop you in a blink. And as you fall, life sometimes finds it humorous to grow trees for you to hit and bounce off as you descend to the ground.

It's at that rocky, cold, hard bottom that you learn the most about yourself. It won't seem that way when you're down there, but oh it is.

Happy 4th of July to the Fighters

No, not just the many men and women who fought and continue to fight for this country's independence and freedom (though we owe them many thanks as well)...

This is to the many Americans who have navigated the rough waters of social justice throughout this country's existence to fight for the rights and happiness of humans.

Those who have fought for love rather than for revenge with hearts full of hate.

Those who demanded respect for humans who were not deservedly receiving it.

Those who stood up against faulty powers to speak truths and uncover lies.

And especially to those who never gave up in the face of abuse and hatred.

This celebration is for you,

Organic Travel Essentials [Part 1]

This is Part 1 of of a mini-series I'm doing on organic travel essentials. I will be doing a 2-3 week roadtrip around the West starting next Friday and have been doing a lot of research on organic outdoor products and various ways to ensure health while travelling. Thus, I wanted to share the products I ended up choosing!

Part 1- Sun & Bugs
Part 2- Vitamins/Supplements

When You Feel Let Down and Heartbroken

It sucks. Especially when it's from people you once thought cared the most. It's even harder when for whatever reason, you can't help but still care for them.

Being Okay With Being Alone

For a long time I fought my own introverted-ness. I wanted to be an extrovert so badly, I wanted a lot of friends, I wanted to party as much as others, I wanted to go out and not be overly tired by the time I reached the bar. I didn't understand why when I forced myself to do those things it was so exhausting, it took everything out of me.
