I started this blog a couple years ago as an outlet to express my struggles with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The more I blogged, the more I came to understand that being honest and open about life’s struggles opens the door for connection, acceptance and self-love. I truly believe that we need each other’s most honest stories to know that we are not alone. Life is not a perfect feed of filtered Instagram photos. Life consists of ups and downs, and perfect imperfections. Over the years, my blog has turned into my own little, personalized space on the web where I can share my innermost thoughts, feelings and the overall randomness in my mind with the world.
I graduated from Northeastern with a major in Psychology in 2016 and am now living in New York, working for a psychiatric treatment program while applying to graduate schools. I enjoy doing things that make me feel good: working out, yoga, spoiling my dog, going on spontaneous trips with my boyfriend, writing, spending time with the people I love, and advocating for mental health!
Cooper is my 3 and 1/2 year old ruby King Charles Cavalier. He is my side kick, my shadow and the best decision I ever made. Everyone who meets him falls in love instantly. He comes absolutely everywhere with me and is a world traveller. Oh — and he’s famous! Check out his instagram: https://www.instagram.com/catchupwithcooper/
