nostalgia hits harder than any drug I’ve ever taken

here’s to the only event I ever went to at FIU @slanderofficial #sober #gratitude

a square of 72% or higher dark chocolate a day keeps frowns away ⠀

seconds before Luka yanked me out the door

down to walks, drop ins, and house sits since my apartment won’t let me board my doggos anymore. glad to still be able to hang out with them when I can though 💕

During my sophomore year I was put on anti-anxiety meds to help with my panic attacks and for me it ended up turning me more into a zombie more than anything. After trying out different methods over the past few years, I’ve found a few different techniques that work for me to cope with stress including yoga and writing.

Everyone is different, and your way of coping with stress is probably way different than the next person.
So today’s question of the day is: how do you cope with stress? Comment yours down below to share with someone else who might be looking for different techniques.

I just got out of my Spanish CLEP test, which if I passed would let me graduate by the end of July. ⠀ ⠀

I had built up graduation a lot. To say I was so ready to officially just be done with college is quite the understatement.
⠀ ⠀

My heart sank when I saw the failed score on my screen and with my expectation crushed, I was left to sit with my thoughts.
⠀ ⠀

In the back of my mind I could still hear the all too familiar “see this is why you’ll never amount to anything,” and immense waves of shame lurking. ⠀ ⠀
⠀ ⠀
Guilt I don’t mind, because it’s productive - ya I know I should’ve planned and studied more and it’s setting me back on officially being done with school, whatever. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
But shame? Thinking it’s me that’s the problem, not the time spent studying? Thinking I’m somehow fundamentally flawed because of it?? I can hear them throwing insults at me as I write this post. “Why should anyone listen to you? What have you done?”
⠀ ⠀

They can fuck off. And to say that now so easily discredits how long it has taken me to get to this point

⠀ ⠀
This video is about daring to love yourself even when those little (or completely overwhelming) voices in your head or those around you are trying to give you any and every reason not to - even if it may seem easier to ride that wave of shame and accept that “fate,” - those little acts of bravery do add up over time. I’m not good at interview things, and reallyyy hate public speaking - if you told me in my public speaking class I’d be doing this, lol you’d have another thing coming. I’d take zeros, skip classes, all of it to avoid any type of public speaking. This is the proof that they do add add up

some days are more aligned than others [long post]

I did a poll about a year ago asking who was trying to start their own business on Facebook. About 60% said they were, and I’m sure a good amount of you seeing this are doing the same (s/o vaynernation fam 💕)
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
I wanted to take a step back, and acknowledge how hectic it can be and how lonely of a journey it is. Since switching to a fully online student during my junior year, I’ve been testing my job interests, seeing which ones I have a burning desire for and ones I’ve hated - and along the way I’ve found some pretty amazing opportunities: working in remote jobs with awesome companies and doing event promotions and content creation in a variety of fields and being able to learn the ins and outs of their businesses and meeting amazing individuals along the way.. 🙌🏼 However, I have also found anxiety and loneliness. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

For me as an independent contractor, my next paycheck is not always guaranteed or can even take MONTHS to get. You are constantly reaching out and seeking out new opportunities. Networking is something I’ve learned along the way and something I’m still not very comfortable with. I’m still learning how to feel comfortable in sales, because I always viewed it as being that hated pushy salesman. Even when I tried door to door solar panel sales and knew I was potentially saving that person a bunch of money, I felt that anxiety. However, I’ve learned to look at it more from the product or service I’m offering. And in hindsight, I was way more comfortable selling solar panels than I was selling things that didn’t align with my interests or beliefs. That’s part of the reason why you don’t see me promoting a shit ton of products on here trying to get monetized. I’m not in it for the money and I never will be. I’m here because I’ve had people message me saying I’ve helped them in some shape or form, and I want to continue to do that.
⠀ ⠀
A lot of the people I’ve met are just as on-the-go as I am, so in “real life” I spend a lot of time by myself and a lottttt of time online. Just a friendly psa that I am here to chat or hang out or rant with #itssocialmediasobesocial 🤙🏼
