Welcome to the future! Or 2018. Whichever you prefer is fine with me. But here’s something I do mind: resolutions. I hate them, to be quite honest. I don’t like the pressure they add, I don’t like giving myself a timeline… I prefer to just live Continue reading “My Own Kind Of Resolutions”
Hey everyone! I’ve been wanting to do more of these Q&A posts, and I ran across this one today thanks to Elspeth’s Day by Day and The Blended Blog! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to answer the questions for myself, too. Let me know if you guys like posts like these, and maybe I’ll do more of them! Continue reading “Holiday Themed Q&A”
The semester is finally over! And that means I actually have time to sit down a write a blog post that doesn’t have anything to do with Grey’s Anatomy! I know––weird. But it’s happening. And if you’ve ever thought about starting your own blog, this one is for you! Continue reading “Just Be A Human”
Yoga is great.
I love waking up before the sun rises and spreading my mat across the floor, lighting my sandalwood incense, putting on some soft music, and just losing myself in the practice. Continue reading “Getting back in the groove”
It’s that time of year again!
Summer is ending and recently graduated high schoolers are freaking out about college.
At least I was. I’m not joking. I got put on anxiety medicine AND had to wear a heart monitor because I stressed myself out so much about picking a school, picking a major, scholarships, financial aid, roommates, parking passes, scheduling my own classes, jobs, and OH MY GOD why did I have to graduate??????

I won a cup.
That seems like a very strange statement to start a blog post off with, but that’s how this whole thing started.
The cup is from the Ellen Degeneres show. It’s not a special cup; it’s a clear, tervis-like cup, with the classic aqua blue logo on it. That’s it. But for some reason, when I looked at the cup this morning, I knew I needed to write about it. Here’s why:
Have you ever wanted to interview your best friend? Well, I wanted to, so I did!
Ok, this was fun. Carrie and I have known each other for over a year now and I knew she was the one I wanted to interview for this post. Continue reading “Carrie Tells All”
I’ve been putting this post off for a while because it seems a little awkward but my email is full of people asking for it… and since today is a relatively calm day in the life of Jordyn, now is the time get it over with. Continue reading “My Life in 20 Questions”
My best friend from home is taking me camping.
If you know me, you’re probably laughing out loud right now at the fact that Jordyn Rowland is willingly going to spend more than 2 hours in the woods with no cell service… I’m trying not to think about that part. Continue reading “Simon Says”
I saw an advice quote posted on Instagram a few weeks ago and I knew there would be a post about it at some point. And I guess that point is today. Here’s the quote: Continue reading “Me First”
The other day, I was sitting by the pool reading Eat, Pray, Love for the second time. The first time I read it was shortly after it came out, I was in middle school, and I hated it. But now, reading it at 19, I can see myself in some of the stories Liz tells, I could see myself in some of the situations she found herself in… hopefully not all of those situations, but I’d be okay with the Italian getaway parts. Continue reading “You’ve Got a Friend”
People ask me all the time about my dad. People ask me all the time what it’s like to grow up with a single mom. I don’t blame them for being curious, how could I? It’s human nature… we all want to know everything. What I don’t appreciate is the pity. I don’t need it and I don’t want it, so don’t give it to me. I’ve learned that that’s not an easy request to fill… I can see it in your eyes when the topic comes up. But it’s ok. I get that it’s hard to not look at me differently once you know.
