    That Bucket List Though!


    This writing assignment will be challenging me to create a bucket list of at least 5 things I’d like to do in my life! To relate this to our course theme of the 80s, however, I will be revising this assignment slightly. Instead of a bucket list for things I …

    10 Seconds of Thanks


    The goal of this post is for me to be able to come back and look at what I’m thankful for. To have a visible reminder of the good in my life, rather than just trying to come up with it on the spot. So, without further ado, let’s begin!…

    A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words


    This wonderful picture of me was taken in September of last year. I am now having second thoughts about exposing an embarrassing picture of myself to you but it’s all good! The story behind this picture is hopefully hilarious and a bit nostalgic to you.

    A Letter to my Younger Self


    Dear Maddie,

    Life will seem difficult. You will want to give up, cry, scream, and yell more than you can imagine. That’s okay. Allow yourself to feel those emotions. Bottling them up will do no good. Because life is difficult. It always will be. You just have to learn to …
