I Looked at Timehop Every Day For a Year (And Then I Deleted The App)

Are you familiar with Timehop? The popular app “gathers your social media content and photos from across your favorite platforms and shows it to you on its anniversary, everyday.” Timehop is a pretty freaking cool app — one I’ve been a fan of for the past few years. As described above, Timehop rounds up ALLLLLL of […]

Stepping Out Of My Health & Fitness Comfort Zone (Again)

And so it seems that every time you step out of your comfort zone, that comfort zone stretches just a litttttttle more, making each next step a bit scarier.

Why I Love Being Bad at Stuff (Seriously)

I recently joined a fancy new gym. I’m pretty obsessed with the place.

But that’s besides […]
