RaceHer Box Review

About a month ago, I saw a post by Stephanie from RaceHer Box looking for bloggers to try out a new subscription service for female runners. I jumped at the chance to be able to test out a startup subscription box! One of the reasons I don’t currently subscribe to a box is that it’s usually full of things I don’t want or use. But one tailored to women? Count me in! Continue reading “RaceHer Box Review”

Thoughts on Live Action Beauty and the Beast

I will be the first to admit that I was skeptical of the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast (BATB). While I loved the live action Cinderella, the original was much older, and a live action remake made sense to keep the copyright alive and well. BATB is only 2 years older than me, why do we need to remake it?

After seeing it last night, I have to say, I get it now.

Who Run the World? Millennials.

First off, I hate that word. “Millennial” has come to be a derogatory phrase. And that is exactly what sparked this post.

This past weekend while running the Blue Ridge Half Marathon, I overheard a conversation a group of middle-aged men were having. They were talking about their work week had gone and one piped up and said, “I went to a conference on Millennials. They’re all just awful. They don’t want to work for anything- they’re so entitled. They want a 4 year management position in 2.”

21 Things I’ve Learned in 21 Years

Today is my 21st birthday! So in honor of this occasion, here’s a list of 21 things I’ve learned in my years on this Earth.

1.Your passions will change. In high school I was the opposite of an athlete. I was in drama and chorus and I loved them. I swore to do them my whole life. Then I went to college and things weren’t the same. Then, life presented me with a new passion. I appreciate and love my time I had with drama and chorus, but my life is in a different place now.
