#WhatTheHealth| The Illusion Of Social Media

I have a lot of ideas for posts that I want to do. But this one, I’ve wanted to write for some time. Shannon @GoingWithHappy made a blog post, Social Media Detoxing, and it helped remind me of this topic.

Before the idea of creating a blog entered my mind, I had stopped posting as much on my personal social media. My level of interest in it had become very low. I deleted Snapchat off my phone and closed my … Read More

#LifeInView| Get to Know Me Q&A

(PAE note: I know, I know, today is Friday, which means this should be a #FRIYAY review, but it’s not. Let’s just say I’ve run out of not so great products to talk about. So instead of trying to come up with a product every Friday, I’ll just keep it authentic and post a #FRIYAY when I find one that’s bad and review it then.)

#LifeInView| Where Would We Be Without Support?

I’ve been contemplating a lot lately. Entering the fall season always does that to me. The main focus of my thoughts has been on family, but since starting this blogging journey I realize the importance of friendship more, too. I mainly started blogging because I needed an outlet to express myself. I’ve discussed a little bit of my health situation in a previous post before (#WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie), but the majority of my time is spent at doctor’s … Read More

#LifeInView| The Visionary Friend

How’s your vision? Would you say it’s quite good or would you say it was bad? If we were talking about literal eyesight than you wouldn’t want to depend on me for anything without my glasses because my vision is actually quite poor. But no, today we’re figuratively discussing our vision or how much or how well we pay attention to others.

The definition of the word visionary means to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. … Read More

#LifeInView| Letting Go of Old

Monday, we said goodbye to the final piece of the past. In a way, it was an odd experience because to anyone else these are just two bookcases. To my mother and I, it’s us saying goodbye to memories and a chunk of our lives that had been overshadowed by my father. Even typing out these words seem weird to me because my father’s been gone for 12 years.  But this was the last thing of his (He’s not dead, … Read More

#LifeInView| Sucka For Love

Let me ask you something, Are you a Sucka For Love? If you’re confused, I’ll explain why I’m asking the question. Yesterday evening was the first night that our fire pit was turned on for the season. We (being my mom and me) live in an apartment building so the fire pit is a community fire pit. This would usually be a problem because I’m actually not that sociable in real life, I’m quite introverted. But I guess there are … Read More
