Books, Lately [Midsummer]

Welcome to Quick Lit! This is where I partake in Modern Mrs. Darcy’s link-up and share short (sometimes) and sweet (cavities not included) reviews of what I’ve been reading lately. I was raised in Florida. We visited Chicagoland every single winter, but from 1 month to 18 years, […]

When everything changes all at once

5 things not to do when your life is a bit overwhelmed

Why am I overwhelmed? Well, because I’m a 20-something. Wasn’t that a given? Do we even have a choice? But specifically, I’ll get to that at the end. Maybe. Unless I get too overtaken by feelings to finish. 1. Avoid putting things away, specifically clothes. This is […]
