We need to talk about procrastination. Yes, again. I’ve written about it before, but seeing as it’s basically a silent epidemic, we need to talk about it some more. My past two weeks were packed to the brim with obligations and deadlines, and instead of making me more efficient out of necessity, the stress morphed me… READ MORE »

Ever feel like your everyday life is akin to wading through molasses? Like you’re on the cusp of something great, but totally stumped on either what that thing is or when it will finally arrive, trapped in a holding pattern?

Spiders and dark rooms suck and all, but the most bone-chilling things in life are usually those we can’t see at all. The biggest culprit? Not knowing what’s going to happen next. People hate uncertainty, and how could we not? If we aren’t completely sure how to plan for the future, how can we possibly… READ MORE »
