3 Things to Remember When Dating Someone With a Creative Mind

I am a creative person… SURPRISE! I know… shocking. Who would believe it?! Sarcasm aside, it is true that I thrive off of creativity. Creating content for the blog, working on branding and concept design,  drawing, sketching, writing poetry. ALL. OF. IT. It’s my bread and butter and gives me such a rush. And, all of the creative people that I know get that same rush that I do when they get in their creative head space. Obviously, my medium of choice is the visual. Painting, writing, whatever… I like it to be concrete. Something that you can see and

To The Next Guy Who Holds My Heart

To The Next Guy Who Holds My Heart

I am a work in progress and every day is a new struggle. I go from thinking I know everything that I want and what I need to do to get it to being completely clueless and feeling helpless the next second. I will know when I’m trying your patience, and I will feel so terrible for it. But it’s just the way I am, and it’s the way that I figure things out. Changing the routine, changing what I want from moment to moment… it’s how I make life work for me. I am not a stagnant person and

The Liberation of Living Alone

The Liberation of Living Alone

As most of you know I moved out completely on my own this year. Prior to this I had either always lived with a roommate, a boyfriend, or my gram. At first I was crazy apprehensive. I mean, let’s be real here, I’m afraid of literally everything. So, living alone was a little daunting. Thankfully I was moving into an apartment complex that a couple members of my family are only a few doors down and my gram is just right up the road, so that helped a lot. However, it didn’t fully solve all of my issues. I mean,

Real Talk: Settling is a Waste of Energy

Real Talk: Settling is a Waste of Energy

At 25, with only a handful of legitimate relationships in my pocket I’ll be the first to say… there’s a lot to be said for being single. I enjoy it very much. I mean, I didn’t come up with an entire post about being Miss Perpetually Single for nothing. The truth is, being single really suits me. That isn’t to say that I wouldn’t be opposed to finding someone. I mean, I love love as much as the next girl. But, I really don’t want to rush it. Why? Because settling is a waste. Before I get into that more I

To the One That Left When I Couldn’t, Thank You

To the One That Left When I Couldn’t, Thank You

Everyone get’s one. One great, terrible, agonizing, stupid, amazing, fun filled love. Some get more than that, but everyone does get at least one. And every great love is different. Some work out, some don’t. And frankly, falling in love is scary. When we first met I knew that you were broken. I was too, in my own way. You had been jaded so many times, and I was a wild child with no plans on slowing down. We were so young when we met, so caught up in the thrill of our new found freedom that came with “adulthood”.

An Open Letter to the Guy That Verbally Absued Me

An Open Letter to the Guy That Verbally Absued Me

Hey there, Mr. Once Upon A Time, long time no talk! We actually haven’t talked since right after we broke up. Which I’m more than fine with, but there’s a lot that I’ve held in these past few years after our breakup that I’ve always wanted to get off my chest. I can remember the day we broke up so vividly. I was sitting on the floor, numb. Not even crying because I didn’t have it in me anymore. And you were yelling. Like always. Yelling and telling me how terrible of a person I was, how much your family

Miss Perpetually Single

Miss Perpetually Single

We all know her, the girl that just always seems to be single. She’s going out on dates, she’s meeting people but nothing really seems to stick. And anybody that’s around her for long really doesn’t seem to know why. She’s funny, she’s charismatic, she’s smart as hell but, for some reason no one seems to stay around long. I’ll admit it.  I’m one of the perpetually single girls. Now, I don’t mean perpetually single in a sense that I’ve never had a relationship. I have. However none of them have lasted very long. I had one “long-term” relationship that lasted just under two

Dating as a Millennial

Dating as a Millennial

Being a millennial and dating can be more than a little confusing. My generation is so screwed up on it’s concept of what a real relationship is. We’ve all seen the #RelationshipGoals however, no one wants to take the time to get to know someone well enough to form a meaningful relationship.  In a generation where ghosting is the norm and hookups are the new dating culture, it’s no wonder that we’re all so scared to get attached. We all jump from person to person, never staying long enough to discover anything real about the each other. And then we have this whole
