QOTD: Moments that change us and where they lead

I came across this week’s QOTD while getting lost in the beautiful chaos that is Tumblr (Are you on Tumblr? Follow me!). It’s the kind of quote that immediately brings to mind the gut-wrenching feeling of THAT MOMENT. I’m sure that we all have it — that moment where everything changed and our lives were never the same. Luckily, my MOMENT didn’t taint the memory of my past or what I thought I knew about my life up until that point. Instead, it changed the way I felt moving forward. I’ve always considered myself an “old soul,” but the aftermath of the MOMENT …Keep Reading

QOTD: It must be love when you get bored when they’re on the loo

My love of British television seems to know no bounds. While my sister was interning in Ireland a few years ago, she happened across a show called Him & Her on BBC Three. After just a few episodes, I was thoroughly hooked. Unlike your typical comedy, the entire show (except for the final season/series) takes place in Becky and Steve’s apartment. The comings and goings of their neighbor, friends, and family keep the audience entertained, as the couple is seemingly constantly interrupted. You fall in love with their dynamic and feel the pain when Becky’s sister Laura barges in yet again. …Keep Reading

QOTD: Work hard and read Mindy Kaling’s ‘Why Not Me’

As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m in that limbo state of uncertainty that comes with searching for a new job in a new city. I often get asked by well-meaning family members and friends what it is exactly that I do all day. When this happens, I often hesitate for a few seconds trying to figure out what to tell them. Because to be honest with you, some days I’m more motivated than others and don’t work hard enough. At least a few times a week I go through job posting sites and apply to any jobs that even remotely resemble …Keep Reading

QOTD: Alternate universes and my desire to relax

Hooray – it’s finally Saturday! Well, I’m sure most of you feel this way. For me, I’m torn between my previous routine of allowing myself to relax on the weekends after working like crazy all week and my new life in limbo of job hunting in a new city where the only person I actually know is my roommate. The last four months of 2016 had me running around like crazy between work and grad school and caused me to become so emotionally exhausted that I had no idea how I was still functioning, let alone putting together full sentences. Needless to …Keep Reading

How an INFJ feels about reading

This is perhaps the most accurate thing I’ve ever read about my love of books and reading… INFJs are often very passionate about reading. They enjoy all types of reading materials, whether that be an imaginative fantasy story, a serious non-fiction book, or even researching in depth information online. They enjoy the feeling of being engrossed in a good book and love the time alone to take it all in. Books are a big part of the INFJs life, and a big part of who they are. They also love researching new subjects online and absorbing as much knowledge as …Keep Reading
