    Being an introvert in an extroverted world

    Before I knew that I was an introvert, I couldn’t figure out how to “fit in” with my surroundings. Everything was too loud, too chaotic, too harsh. Being an introvert has its shortcomings, but these shortcomings are often criticized unfairly because of how the world caters to extroverts.

    June Favorites

My June favorites are short and sweet but really, really special! My new car!! I’ve been saving up for a car since January, and when this like-new 2015 Chevy Impala became available from a family friend, I knew it was the one! I have been fortunate to have a car throughout high school and college from my parents, but it was time to retire the old girl. Buying your own car may not be…
