My Favorite Soul Albums of 2016

I took my three months into 2016 but I finally am finishing this series. I have so much more music to talk about from this year already.

If I Knew Then… Pt. 2 (Growing Up)

Growing up is somewhat blindsiding. You expect things to be one way and then the sheer weight of the world starts to press back harder than you expected. There are so many things that I wish I was taught while growing up instead of learning things the hard way. Last week's post focused finances and things… Continue reading If I Knew Then… Pt. 2 (Growing Up)

Pomodoro Technique: The Tomato that Changed it all.

Productivity always has been an illusive mistress. I've been working on organization and time management skills extensively for the past five years with only occasional breakthroughs. After my return to school in 2011, I realized that if I didn't work on it now, I would be doomed to late night cram sessions and papers for… Continue reading Pomodoro Technique: The Tomato that Changed it all.

Crowded in Lonely Room: My Battle against Anxiety

If you haven't picked up a theme for this year; I have talked my ADHD, personal doubts, creativity blocks, nontraditional addictions, bloodline curses, and Depression multiple times. The moral of the story is that emotional and mental care matters. I was amazed to find that my posts on my mental peculiarities seem to help my readers the most. Today, I'll speak on my… Continue reading Crowded in Lonely Room: My Battle against Anxiety
