I'm. Done. Writing. 2018.

So this is really difficult.

I'm not going to be updating this blog for awhile, at least not for the rest of this year. There is a lot I need to focus on when it comes to myself, my career, and just my overall life. I also feel kind of inadequate to have this blog, this was a place for me to express myself, as well as share some of my experiences as a young adult and the lessons I am learning.. but I feel like a hypocrite. It's like who am I to share life lessons and advice if I don't even have my own life together. Right?

I guess I do not know what to grab a hold of at this point.. the idea that you do not have to have it all figured out to be an encouragement to people OR you have to wait and be established in order for your story and words to have real meaning. I'm confused.

My blog was overall pushing the message that you can share your story even in the midst of the storm, you can still be a light and be the reason someone doesn't give up even if your life is…

The Conversation of Mental Health/Wellness In Our K-12 Programs: A Wake Up Call.

I am sure we all can remember that one teacher or supervisor from middle school, high school or elementary school that we catered to a majority of the time.

That person gave you the time of day outside academics and class schedules, was your cheerleader when it came to breakdowns and doubts. I'm talking about that staff member that let you eat lunch with them when your friends abandoned you. Anyone ring a bell?

 For me it is my high school academic counselor. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a post I wrote that was dedicated to her and thanking her for all the support and encouragement she gave me. Without her constant support and willingness to put aside time to give me pep talks during my emotional breakdowns, I do not know whether I would be alive today. She is a prime example of what it means to make a major impact on a student's life. I only hope many teachers can learn from her and her impressionable actions.

Essentially this all got me thinking.. do all…
