March 29, 2017

Slippers are essential to make lounging around the house even more relaxing! I remember when I was young, my first pair of slippers were super comfy and bright pink with monkey heads on the top of them. As childish as they sound, I still take comfort in knowing that I can walk around my house as an adult and not feel judged for walking on little clouds with cute or funny designs on them. I actually just recently had to…

These Are the Healthiest Hot Chocolate Recipes Ever!

March 15, 2017
healthy hot chocolate

This is the season to get cozy next to the fire and sip on a delicious mug of winter’s signature beverage, hot chocolate. My personal favorite isn’t something you find inside one of those instant Swiss Miss packets but is made from Nestle’s “Abuelita’s Hot Chocolate Bars”! It’s melted in a slow cooker along with whole milk, white and brown sugar, half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a dash of salt, and sometimes, just a sprinkle of cinnamon. Top it…

girls on soccer team

Being on a soccer team was probably the best and worst decision I ever made in my life! I was only playing because my mom made me sign up for a sport. I eventually quit, figuring my reason for continuing to play shouldn’t be because I wanted to make other girls cry when they lost. I wasn’t exactly what you would call the “star player” of the team. I say that it was the worst decision of my life for…

Tips to Dealing With Teen Anxiety

January 18, 2017
teen anxiety

Dealing with teen anxiety was literally the most horrific thing I have ever had to experience in my entire life. When I was in middle school I had some pretty bad anxiety issues that caused me to have panic attacks. IN addition to attending a pretty intense school curriculum, I was a total try-hard when it came to wanting to fit in with the crowd. I was able to pull it off for a while, but I realized, I was…

How Teaching Students to Dab Helps with Math

January 4, 2017
dab angle

Dabbing and math are basically my two worst enemies, so it seems like a mistake that somehow the two could fit together. I find the frustration of trying to figure out a geometry question to be just as if not more infuriating then going into a store to find at least one kid dabbing through the aisles while casually reaching for the mac and cheese. Everywhere I look, someone is dabbing…and I feel like that trend was over long ago.…

December 21, 2016
fitness apps

Fitness apps have been my personal life saver! I would consider myself a pretty lazy person when it comes to making an effort to work out. It always just seems like such a chore, or I’ll try to make myself busy or make excuses so that I don’t have to deal with getting on the floor and doing a few sit-ups. There are a few new fitness apps that I was introduced to lately that really make working out seem…
