first thing's first...
Over the course of my college career, I've discovered that the first step to a happier life is by realizing that this concept of a "happy life" is bullshit. There is no finish line where you can throw your arms up and say, "I did it! I'm happy!"
Through my own experiences dealing with depression and bipolar disorder, I'm just trying to figure out how to navigate happiness and leading a fulfilled life. So, here I am documenting every effort, misstep, and moment that makes me question what it means to be alive... while also remaining unfiltered and unapologetic. Through my own process I am hoping to learn how to comfort those experiencing similar things: how do we find happiness?
After all, if there were any surefire way to be "happy,"
it would have to be by connecting with other humans.
who i am
Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, I went to Thayer Academy in Braintree and finished my high school career as a member of the Cum Laude Society. They basically had to kick me out to make me graduate. Then I ventured out of New England for college at the University of Richmond in Virginia.
Here at UofR, I was the Class of 2020 President my freshman year, the Chair of Student Affairs during my sophomore year, and as a rising junior I will continue my work for student government as the Chair of External Affairs. I am designing my own major called, "Psychology and Creative Engagement," and I am also minoring in Spanish. I absolutely love learning and making every effort to broaden my perspectives.
