White Gowns and Bright Lights

White gowns and bright lights.
There’s sorrow on the wall.
Bad food and long nights;
I try to walk but fall.
The sound of beeping never ends.
Loved ones trying to make amends,
but I just want to feel good again.
Before I lost it all.
Hanging on that voice inside,
telling me that if I try
to keep my strength and spirit high,
soon the pain will pass me by.
White gowns and bright lights.
I struggle but I’m still alive.

Tiny Homes are becoming a big hit.

Imagine this. You’re off for a few days, you don’t know what to do but you know you just need to go. Maybe Oregon? Or how about New York City? Or maybe the good old city of angels. So you walk outside your tiny house (200 sq. ft. to be exact) that’s attached to your car,  and you just….. go.

Men: without, women are hopeless. It’s funny how a quick grammatical switch can change the entire meaning of a sentence. At one point, women were. That wasn’t their fault though. Society and over-analyzed values played a huge part in gender equality, or lack thereof. Nonetheless, women have been able to dominate this generation and generations before us as corporate leaders and industry ground breakers, fighting tooth and nail to prove that they too can break the mold. In celebration of National Women’s Day, here are seven crazy women in history who did crazy awesome things that prove #OneDayWeDID and #OneDayWeWILL!

1.  Saying it like it is. Prime Minister of Israel from 1969 to 1973, Golda Meir was, “[a] pioneer, visionary, risk-taker, indefatigable fund-raiser, eloquent advocate,” according to the Jewish Women’s Encyclopedia. When asked to place a curfew on women to help end a series of rapes, Meir replied by stating, “But it is the men who are attacking the women. If there is to be a curfew, let the men stay at home.”

Why Every Young Adult Should Sit Down with their Grandparents

My grandpa turned 80 on Saturday. It’s funny how fast time goes by– and right before our eyes. We’re in the midst of a huge generational shift and our elders, who we constantly like to joke about how they know nothing about our dear social media platforms, are holding the one thing that is most valuable: Experience.
