“It’s all taken care of”

To recap all of Kasia’s deep-life posts:

And while these are all good & dandy and serve as some nice lessons at different times of your (and my) life, they’re kind of pointless without one thing:

Trust.

(Also see: faith, chilling the f*ck out in general).

I can say timing is everything, honor where I am & aim to let go, but am I truly good at believing and trusting that everything’s going to work out/be okay without my complete control over it?

Lol. Sure.

How to Solve Common Apartment Problems

The amount of real-world, “adult” apartment problems I’ve had in my first grownup apartment is actually comical. To put it lightly, I’ve had more leaks, pests & general repairs in 3 years than I’ve seen in my entire 25 years of life. When the first problem happened (a leaking roof), I called my parents at 5am and bawled my eyes out. But by my most current issue (an overflowing toilet), I merely laughed on the phone with my dad & fixed it.

I’m by no means a handy-(wo)man, but this crash course in “home-rentership” has definitely taught me some valuable lessons on how to fix common problems that can only benefit me when I have a real home someday & can’t call a landlord. For any of you millennials out there renting your first big girl/boy apartment, keep reading. I can guarantee I’ve experienced & solved at least one of your apartment woes.

The Best Coffee Products for Caffeine Lovers

I’m a fairly passionate person. Most people who know me would agree. (Some might confuse this as “dramatic” or “obsessive,” but I prefer “passionate” ;)) Of all the things I love, I’d have to say that I’m most passionate about the following items:

especially coffee. Funny thing is, I didn’t grow up drinking coffee. In fact, my parents HATE coffee. I attribute my love for coffee to being a barista at the coffee shop on Villanova’s campus and my short Starbucks stint after I graduated. And even though I haven’t always been a coffee drinker, I’ve always looooooved coffee shops/coffee shop culture (Fun fact: I even did two research projects on coffee shop culture for undergrad/grad school #nerd).

Of course, being passionate about coffee has lead me to become a little bit of a coffee snob (ugh, once you taste REALLY good coffee, you can never go back) so I thought it’d be kinda fun to share all my favorite coffee products that I’ve discovered over the years for all you caffeine lovers out there. Read it for yourself or share with the coffee-lover in your life. Enjoy ~
