I tried that whole new years resolution thing multiple times and anyone who has stuck with Creative and Chaos over the past few years has seen the various lists of aspirations for complete turnarounds and life changes but honestly? Big changes just don’t stick with me – at least not-self improvement ones haha. So this year I think I’m going to try something different; revising what I already do to make this year a good one! Baby steps right? Read more “New Year – Not New but Revised?”
I honestly had no idea what the term gaslighting meant until Scott Helman released the song. At the time, I loved it because of the tune but looking back on it, man was it relevant. Read more “Gaslighting – What is It and Walking Away”
It’s taken me a while to learn this, but you are the only one who can ever define you. Not your family, your job, your social status. Just you. It’s a tough lesson to learn. In this day and age where everything superficial and fake is “goals”, anything less than perfect just won’t cut it. Read more “You Define You”

Hey readers! If you’ve been following along thus far you know I’ve been pursuing my undergrad in Community Development and Policy Studies (Political Science) with a minor in Communications. You also probably know that I burn the candle at both ends working often over 35 hours a week plus school to pay the bills and establish my brand so that I can create content for the rest of my life.
