As some of you may have noticed, I have not posted on My Loquacity for the past week. As someone who feels like she should have everything under control all of the time, I have been feeling extremely guilty about this. I love blogging, but as a college student, sometimes life gets in the way. This past week, I had 4 midterms to study for, and I celebrated my 21st birthday. As much as I hated to do it, I gave myself the week off, but promised myself that I was going to create amazing content from there on out.
As I’ve mentioned before, this blog is supposed to be a place where I write about everything my friends are sick of hearing me talk about. Today’s post is going to be about my personal life, so if you’re not super into that, keep a look out for Friday’s post instead! Also, if you want to hear about Operation 21, skip to the third paragraph.
I have an eerily vivid memory of my young self trying on shorts in The Children’s Place. My family was going on vacation to Disney World with my cousins, and my mom wanted to pick up a few new outfits for my sister and I before we left.

I used to want to be the girl who had it all together. I wanted to be the girl with a 4.0 GPA, who worked out every day, involved herself in 12 different clubs, and managed to look flawless while doing it all. Yes, I used to want to be that girl, but lately, I’ve been pretty damn proud of who I’ve actually been. That might sound a little strange to say, because people don’t say kind words about themselves very often, but I think I have this whole Junior year of college thing down. Regardless of your grade level, you can be proud of the person you actually are too, and find the balance you’ve been searching for. Here’s how! Continue reading “Finding Balance”
I used to think that long distance was stupid. I never understood why you’d want to try to make something work with someone when you never could see them anyway. I used to try to convince my friends that it was a bad idea to be with someone who didn’t live close by, until it happened to me. Continue reading “How to Survive Long Distance”
Fridays’ posts have kind of been the “wild card” on My Loquacity lately, and I have been loving that I have an outlet to share my opinions and personal struggles.Today, I am writing about a light-hearted topic, that I’ve been becoming more aware of over the past few weeks. I hope this post ends up being relatable. Continue reading “Live your Life in Color”
“Positivity is a choice, not a personality trait.” For the longest time I didn’t believe this statement. I used to think I was a positive person, and just had bad days. Although this is somewhat true, I started having too many bad days, or I would get caught up on the smallest things and let them ruin my attitude. I now only allow myself to have bad moments, and not bad days. Continue reading “The Key to Living a Positive Life”
