A few months ago I had found myself going back into a slump. I wanted to have the ability to pull myself out of it before I hit rock bottom. There was something I was missing and I couldn’t quite explain exactly what it was. So I spent some time browsing YouTube (if only I got paid to watch videos) and stumbled upon card making. I have to admit it seemed so dated, but  the more I watched the more I felt like this was what I was searching for.  Continue reading

I wanted to take this moment to talk about the Las Vegas shooting. Having lived here for the past 7 years, I have come to embrace this city and I feel like it has done the same to me. I have made friends here, the love of my life here, and now I just feel so connected to the city.

When the shooting happened I immediately thought of three people that could have been there (and two of them were). I frantically searched social media for an update from them because I wasn’t sure if they had their phones. Thankfully they were all safe and I just kept checking on everyone that I knew. Monday was an odd day to be at work. It felt wrong to send out any type of email and it felt like they day went by in a haze. Continue reading

The Anxious Journey | Part 1


I’m a terrible liar… I thought I would be back posting on this particular blog, but I just didn’t know what I wanted this blog to be about. However, I thought that I would kind of document my journey with anxiety and also opinion pieces.

As you can probably tell by the title, today’s post is going to be about my anxiety.

I took a minute to reflect on some of the posts that I have here and I noticed a very sad and pathetic pattern. I turn to my blog when I am going through down times. I turn to this platform almost every single time I am feeling down. Why? Why do I only come on here when I am going through my lowest points in life? Why do I think that venting here will help?

Am I A Failure?

This question has been running through my head so much lately. I think about quitting my job and pursuing something in the retail industry (luxury) and I can’t help but think what everyone would think of me. However, lately, I have been breaking at the seams. I just can’t seem to do anything right or make anyone happy any more and I can’t help but wonder if keeping all my emotions and thoughts pent up inside has finally taken it’s toll.  Continue reading


Last night was a difficult night for me. Shortly after I had graduated college, I was able to get an entry level job as a marketing admin. Just getting a job a couple months out of college is a miracle. To be frank, there are a lot of college graduates out there who can’t find jobs, even entry level ones.  Continue reading


I know I said that I was going to transfer everything to one blog, but I decided to change that… again. I thought why should this blog stop just because I’m no longer in college? It should continue because everybody wants to know what happens after college. I have decided that this blog will focus on my career portion of life. While my other blog (ciaociao808.com) will mostly focus on beauty and lifestyle.

With all that being said… I’m back!! 😀
