Hi, I'm a 23 year old Long Island raised lady who became a grown adult (aka: 6 years for undergrad and grad schooling) in Philly, home of squished pretzels and 'brotherly' love. I'm on the brink on finishing my degree in Physical Therapy and traveling between a few cities for my last clinical rotations. I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm. My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs.
This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurences. Enjoy.

On things that suck —> then to the positive outlook of it?
Having bugs in your apartment
- Black carpet beetles in the furniture? YUUUUUCKKKK
+ I’m now cleaning my WHOLE room and 75% apartment and have a reason to have the other two people living here chip in (even though they usually never touch a sponge or spray cleaner…). I was literally crawling under my mattress to vacuum every crevice
Decreasing your caffeine intake
- I’m used to two coffees by 2pm. I’m currently down to one coffee in the morning; however, I’ve been falling asleep (usually by accident) by 930/10pm. It is really hard for me to just SIT, zone out to a TV and allow myself to be tired and be/feel unproductive. I actually fell asleep to my online pharmacology class lecture yesterday. Oh boy.
+ I’ll appreciate caffeine much more when I’m taking classes again in two weeks?
"When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time."
"Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful."
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good, either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be."
"I’m scared I’m going to spend the rest of my life in a state of yearning, regardless of where I am."
"I want to feel my life. I want to stop agreeing to things I don’t really want."
People tend to have one big regret or life mistake they acknowledge
Mine is not letting myself make them.
On letting warmth, creativity and emotions fill myself and those close to me rather than dispersed across a screen.
There is something nice about not promoting every event you went to, friend you saw or every monumental life situation you had or witnessed on facebook. Instead, cherishing those things within keeps it closer to you, more symbolic and more treasured. At 22, I’m proud, confused or busy in a lot of things, but I am starting to learn how I like living my life rather than broadcasting all of it.
