Vents by Jess: Matthew 6:25 and worrying about life

I need to vent because I quite literally might go insane right now if I don’t start writing. I’ve had a lot of pent up anxiety and anger at my world today. Sheer rage to be honest. I’ve been feeling frustrated, stuck, upset… just so unhappy thinking about my current situation, my future, and the life I want to live. And when I’m like the … Continue reading Vents by Jess: Matthew 6:25 and worrying about life

Social Distancing: How to have your life not fall apart during quarantine

Given the fact that during this time of social distancing my life has fallen apart and back together more times than I can count… No, seriously. I have experienced every human emotion possible.

Okay, that was a tad dramatic, but … Continue reading Vents by Jess: Feeling overwhelmed, spreading yourself too thin, and some advice to current students

Review: December Boxycharm

Something I’m going to start doing monthly is reviewing my Boxycharm box! I’ve been subscribed to this box since about May, so I might as well review the contents each month and spill the tea on the products one might encounter if they purchase a Boxycharm subscription (the value is seriously insane).

My Second Time Seeing Hobo Johnson in Concert

It’s been over two weeks now… and I still can’t get over it. I don’t even know WHERE to begin; I just knew I wanted to write this. I guess I’ll start with proclaiming my undying love for Frank. His stage name is Hobo Johnson and contradictory to what you might assume, he is in fact *not* a hobo… anymore. Well, he was wearing the … Continue reading My Second Time Seeing Hobo Johnson in Concert
