Overcoming Stress and Anxiety In Your Twenties

Overcoming Stress and Anxiety

Hey guys! Enjoy today’s guest post from Mila! xoxox, Kayla

 I think often we let life get in the way of taking care of ourselves. With school, school debt, work, or lack of work, we have so many stressors in our lives. You can read just about anywhere that our generation might be the most and anxious and stressed out generation yet, and if I look at just my own experience, I would say that’s pretty accurate.

I’ve always struggled with anxiety and depression, and as an “adult,” I have been in a pretty constant state of stress. When I was in college, I regularly stressed myself out to the point of illness; one year in particular, I managed to get 10 long lasting colds in a single year. When I worked abroad in Japan in 2015, I managed to stress myself to the point that I was losing hair. That was not cool, and was extremely scary (which, needless to say, didn’t help my stress at all).

I wish I could say that this is just me and that I’m just a crazy person, but looking at others in this generation that is not the case. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t read someone’s status update as something along the lines of “sick again, gonna go die in bed now,” or “just having a mental breakdown, don’t mind me.”

10 Adulting Moments Most Of Us Will Experience In Our Twenties

Adulting Moments

My girlfriends and I have been talking a lot lately and we’ve come to the conclusion that being an adult is NOT fun.

Okay, fine, SOMETIMES it’s fun. But most of the time, our lives are full of all this adult stuff that no one told us we were going to have to do!

I grew up DYING to be an adult. All I wanted to do was grow up, get a job, and make money. Now all I want to do is curl up under the covers in my bed and hide from all my adult responsibilities.

Go away, adult stuff! Not today!!

But eventually, we do have to do grown-up things, so here are 10 adulting moments most of us will experience in our twenties.

Good luck!

What to Look for When Relocating for a Job


Hi guys! Enjoy this guest post from Holly! xoxoxox, Kayla

Job-hunting isn’t all about the job. If you’re looking into relocating for an awesome work opportunity, you also have to take the area into consideration.

If you’re a music lover, you’re going to want a good local music scene and places for you to go see shows. If you’re an adventurer, you’re going to want to know how close you are to mountains and hiking trails. Take everything into consideration when you’re relocating!

how to change your last name

Okay, so we did it!! Joe and I are officially married! Don’t worry, I’ll be posting tons of pictures soon, because our wedding weekend was absolutely the best weekend of my life!

However, as amazing as it was, the last two weeks leading up to the wedding were beyond stressful. There was so much to do, not enough time to do it all, and it just seemed like I kept writing more and more things down on my to-do list.

Now, that’s all over!

LOL, I wish. We’ll be moving into our new house in a couple of weeks, and there’s still a bunch of stuff Joe and I have to do, now that we’re back to reality.

Cuban Themed Date Night With Havana Honeys Cigars

Joe’s been doing a lot of research into his background lately, so being 54 days away from our wedding, I thought it’d be interesting to put together a fun date night in to teach him a little bit about my Cuban roots with the help of traditional Cuban food, Mojitos, and Havana Honeys Cigars.

For those of you who don’t know, Joe’s from Alabama. A true Southern guy.

And me?

Well, I was born in Miami, and so were my parents, but all of my grandparents were born in Cuba.
