Trying

Welp, nervous as heck but super stoked to have applied to do a graduates certificate in addictions and mental health. 

I’ve had a lot of negative feelings towards these issues in the past while trying to deal with my own mental health problems and I know I took them out the wrong way. Now, I’m really fascinated to learn about how these types of things control the brain, make those changes, and how are they all caused. 

Here’s to another year of bettering myself so I can properly help those who need it. 

Your End Goal

I started this year with how to jump into the entrepreneur space with a great idea, and simplifying the stages that your idea will go through.  In this post, I want to discuss what your end goal(s) is.  After all, knowing your end goal will help guide your decisions and ambition towards a target.

This conversation will almost always start with what your Home Run Scenario is. This is the scenario that if everything went perfectly what would your ideal end goal be.  Some examples of Home Run Scenarios are selling your company to a bigger company, franchising your idea, or grow a business that can support itself and your needs.  These Home Run Scenarios do not have to follow the typical tech startup end goal but should be what you honestly believe and want to be the end goal of your business.

The next thing you should do is to then take a look at what are the other Exit Scenarios that could occur. These are for you to think through so that you cast a wide net and make sure you aren’t missing anything.  The things that need to happen in order for you to hit each Exit Scenario will inform you of what needs to happen in order for you to hit your Home Run Scenario.

With your Home Run and a handful of Exit Scenarios, you should now be able to see a path from where you are now to one of these end goal scenarios. This is also probably the best time to take a deep look into whether or not you have the drive and capability to make it to the end. If you find that you don’t, it is time to make a decision on dropping the idea or figuring out what you need to do or change in order to make it to the end and to start doing those things immediately.

As a note, this blog is geared towards all entrepreneurs who want to start all types of business. With that being said, your end goal(s) do not have to fit into the typical Tech Startup end goals, and being humble and realistic will take you far.  Also, do not fret if you find out that your end goal or one of your exit scenarios is that you are a “Lifestyle Busines,” as making a ton of money on your own time, as your own boss, is extremely difficult to do and should never be shamed. In fact, if you can obtain financial independence doing what you want to do without getting an “investor,” you are actually keeping things “simple and sweet.”

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” - Andrew Carnegie

Name the Beast

The “wise” put names on things and suddenly they exist 

As if they hadn’t existed before 

The “wise” don’t name injustice, pretend it don’t exist

To get their children to just ignore

They’ll never put a name on agony 

Because to do so would be to acknowledge its existence 

They’ll never put a name on tyranny 

Because to do so would call themselves out

The “wise” put names on things only when it’s safe to

So young ones can’t find questions and answers

The “wise” put names on things only when it’s safe to

They will never name the life-maker

They’ll never put a name on equality 

Because to do so would weaken the altars they climbed up on

They’ll never put a name in misery

Because to do so would make them feel guilt

The Wise One puts names in the secretness of your heart

Don’t turn away from the names she gives you

The Wise One puts names in the secretness of your heart

Know the names she gives are right and true

I’m a sinner, I’m a sinner, and I don’t know most things

But

Oh oh oh her words are like river water

There’s a girl in my math class and I finally was brave enough to say hi and that I’d see her thurday. She was in my class last semester but I never got the chance or the courage to say hi. She’s deaf and was really happy when I went and signed to her and didnt use her interpreter (I’m not fluent but I can kinda get by with sign) Im still happy that she was happy, so here’s to tomorrow 🌸

I’ve haven’t shown this tattoo to many people, but it’s been on my mind recently.

I thought, for a long time, one of my strengths was my ability to love people. Whenever I loved someone, friend or not, I loved so goddamn hard.

Then, I got my heart broken and not wanting to get their initials tattooed on me, I got this instead. I wanted to it to be a permanent reminder that, no matter who you are, if I love you, you will always be with me, right by my heart.

Recently, I had grown to hate this little tattoo because I started to view my ability to love so fully as a weakness because I wanted to believe that every human has light inside them. That belief led me to losing every ounce of myself in someone who didn’t deserve it and, well, I got destroyed.


Since then, though, I have found parts of myself I forgot I had or never knew I had. I have started to learn to love me, for the first time.

For that, I will be forever grateful.

So, I now I keep this little tattoo as a reminder to know my ability to love people is a strength and a weakness but, to only allow people who deserve my love to experience it. And that will serve me for the rest of my life.

So, to whomever I have loved and will love: I will carry you with me, wherever I go because “you” are a part of who I am.

Change of Plans 🙃

Ok, so my new semester I stuck to my language schedule for a while… but now I’m on the third day back at school and I’m struggling to balance it right now. Especially because I’m a freshman in classes with mostly sophomores and juniors… But anyway… I’m still planning to contact people who have messaged me or liked any of my friends post sometime this week. I want to thank everyone who reached out to me and I hope to meet eve more. 😊

But with my classes, if anyone is interested in Speech and Hearing Sciences… I’m your girl. 😊 Just message me about whatever. I always try to contact people and stay in touch but it usually depends on the person and the conversation. So, I’m also planning to contact those who have in the past for updates. 😊🤗

Hope you’re all doing well!
