I used to work out to be skinny…

Post: March 31st, 2016

I don’t think I have EVER posted a picture of me in my workout clothes. I’ve always probably been a bit self conscious to do that.  And if I’m being honest, it was still kind of hard to post this picture today. However, here is a selfie of me with no-makeup, no filter, no photo-shop, [...]

    


Starting Fresh! :)

Post: February 16th, 2016

I have TOTALLY been slacking on blogging on here .  I’m not sure why I stopped.  I guess sometimes life just gets to you and you just don’t feel like doing things anymore.  That’s not an excuse, but it’s kind of the truth.  However, I am back and I promise to be more consistent on [...]

    


My Relationship Requirements

Post: October 6th, 2014

My requirements for my next relationship… The word “requirements” sounds so harsh huh? In actuality though, I don’t think the word is harsh at all. In my opinion, “Relationship Requirements” are a necessity. As I’ve gotten older and have gone through many relationships (probably too many if you ask me) I have grown to learn [...]

    


Text Message Conversations Are Not Real….

Post: September 7th, 2014

Text message conversations are not real. Neither are Instagram posts, tweets on Twitter, posts on Facebook, videos via Snapchat, etc. We as human beings living in a digital world have lost a sense of what is real and what is not and in my opinion, this is why. In this day of the digital world, [...]

    


He is there when you need him…

Post: August 19th, 2014

Sometimes I get really sad.  Like extremely sad.  I don’t really know what causes these moments of sadness but they happen from time to time.  You see, I’ve been battling depression ever since my brothers were murdered 11 years ago.  What people don’t know about depression is that usually people who are depressed are the [...]

    


A Relationship With No Gender Roles…

Post: July 29th, 2014

It’s 2:01am on Tuesday July 29th, 2014.  Hi, my name is Geena and I suffer from insomnia.  I also suffer from PTSD which could be the cause of my insomnia however that’s not what today’s blog is about.  I’m only telling you this so you get a peak at my frame of mind right now [...]

    


There’s something empowering about deleting someone from your phone…

Post: July 21st, 2014

HIT DELETE! There’s something empowering about deleting someone from your phone.  Maybe you have that one ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend’s number you still keep in your phone, you know the one you have “just in case” they call so you don’t “accidently pick up?” Now let’s be honest with ourselves, we all know that isn’t true.  [...]

    


Strength or Just Dealing?

Post: July 20th, 2014

Someone told me yesterday that I was the strongest person they know.  I get told that A LOT.  I’m not sure whether or not I am truly the strongest person they know or whether it’s just my perspective on life that makes them think I’m the strongest person they know. 11 years ago I had [...]

    


I feel bad having nice things…

Post: July 15th, 2014

I feel bad for having nice things… When I was younger all I ever thought about was how rich I wanted to be when I got older.  I think it is what motivated me to get straight A’s in school, always strive for perfect attendance, make honor roll every year, be an all-star in various [...]

    


Texting and Dating…

Post: July 14th, 2014

Apparently there are “rules” now when texting someone you are interested in??! WTF?!! I swear to God, in this last week I have had two conversations with two different girlfriends about their text messages with guys.  Guys, if you didn’t already know, women analyze EVERYTHING you say, do, don’t do, and now apparently what you [...]
