hey – how are you doing? it’s been a while since I’ve written on here. we live in a culture where everything has to be perfect and airbrushed. i miss and pine for the days where you didn’t have to triple check and double think everything.

I called these hacks because they are less so broad life philosophies and more so tips and tricks to slowly work towards a happier life.
If you have any video requests, be sure to let me know :-)
Here is some music I’ve been listening to! Shoutout to Maddy, aka Mr. Moist for the rec:

I thought that since I have consistently felt like I didn’t know what to say here for the past few years, I would go back to basics and report on the latest life chapter of my existence – being an “adult.”Continue reading
This podcast is inspired by the following text post I saw on Instagram a few weeks ago:
“You’re not behind in life. There’s no timetable that we all must follow. It’s made up. 7 billion people can’t do everything in the same order. What’s early? What’s late? Compared to who? Don’t beat yourself up for where you are. It’s YOUR schedule and everything is right on time.” Continue reading
