Living Life One Day at a Time

No matter what people tell you,

words and ideas

can change the world.

-Robin Williams

A collection of posts by me:

The world can wait

As an anxiety-riddled and slight OCD-riddled teenager, I’ve always overbooked my schedule. During my high school years–free time didn’t exist that much. For example, my senior year. Every day started with AP Calculus at 8 AM, then I drove to college for my college credit plus classes. Then, I…

Talk to me

I realized recently that I was delving more into topics that affected me personally, and I wanted to get back to the basics. I want to talk just about mental health and how much it can affect others and yourself without you ever noticing. When I first started this…

It’s time to move on

Now, whatever you thought about while reading this, just know it’ll be okay. We’re taught from a young age that the best thing to do is to not feel our emotions for so long and to push them away. But, alas that is not the best for us. It…

True Love

I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. I was the kid who watched hallmark constantly, but never without my brothers’ and dad’s comments about how they “knew how it would end”. Despite this, I always just wanted to find a love like in the movies. Everyone always told that it…

I’m not impressive, I’m just me

Life isn’t just about getting through the day

In memoriam of Loretta Leugers Rempe. May she rest in peace knowing she was loved by many far and wide. I’m taking a break from my normal blogging to make a post dedicated to my great grandmother Loretta. She recently passed away at the age of 100, and she…

    Just wanted to say that I’m proud of you! It takes a lot to put yourself out there and be vulnerable; and you write beautifully. Keep it up and always be you! 😊 Love you!


  2. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  5. I do love the manner in which you have presented this issue and it does indeed present us a lot of fodder for thought. Nonetheless, coming from everything that I have observed, I just simply trust when the opinions stack on that individuals keep on point and in no way embark upon a tirade involving the news du jour.
