The Real Reason I’m Not Excited about My College Graduation

In approximately eight months, I’ll likely join the billions of people working 9-5 (ish) jobs. I’ll collapse on the couch when I get home from the office. I’ll solely look forward to Fridays. I’ll talk too much with my coworkers about the “amazing” lunch I packed. And I’ll completely forget about my dreams because I’ll be spending my days in a lonely cubicle and spending my nights recovering from the workday. That's why I'm so scared about graduating from college.

What “Delight Yourself in the Lord” Means for Our Dreams

After about five-ish years of crushing on Sean (yes, for real) and not receiving any sign of mutual liking, I had had enough. At least I said I had had enough. However, mentally, I was not prepared to let him go.

The Real Reason I’m Concerned About the Coronavirus

My excitement about going home for spring break turned into nervousness about the unknown for the rest of the semester. I hate the unknown. That’s why I’m most concerned about the coronavirus. Because I don't know when I can resume my normal life again.

The Power of “Yes”: My 4-Year Blogiversary

I wouldn’t say that I have “arrived." as a blogger. But I’m here, and here is a good place to be because this is where God brought me. But I had to say “yes.”

When the Future Looks Better than the Present

I have a friend (who I’ll call “Taylor”) who always wants to do the next exciting thing in her life. In the past, she has often been looking forward, as she has planned out her future and dreamed about what lay ahead of her. However, she has never seemed to be content in the present....

The End of an Era

Well, it’s over. I am done with high school. All my mandatory classes are complete. No more quizzes, papers, exams, or projects…for a little while. I cannot believe I’m here. I wish I could stay in high school forever with my family, friends, and church family. Instead, I can prepare for college life—meeting new people,... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Seriously Flawed Blogger (51st Post!)

Even though it’s untraditional to celebrate a 51st anniversary, I’m gonna do it anyway. This is my 51st post on Tizzie’s Tidbits, so I thought I should make this one super important. I want to let you in on a little secret: I am a hypocrite. That’s right. You read that. I typed that. I don’t... Continue Reading →

Like the Eagles

I hate waiting… For a friend to arrive. For my turn to checkout at Kohl's. For my meal to come at Bob Evans. For my curling iron to heat up. I’m sure you can relate. We aren’t always doing. Sometimes we’re just being…and hoping that things start making sense soon. It’s hard to simply be... Continue Reading →

Letting Go of My To-Do List Life

You may have caught on that I have an organized-in-theory kind of life. And one of the organized-in-theory parts of my life is my to-do list. I may have To-Do List Syndrome or Disorder or Disease. I make to-do lists too often, and I don’t do the things on my to-do lists enough. I’m simply not as... Continue Reading →

In the Meantime…Filling up Your Calendar

Recently I posted about how we need to let go of our calendar lives and wait on God’s timing to know what the future holds. However, there are some things you can do while you’re waiting for God to show you what’s next. Here’s a simple list of things a young adult can do to... Continue Reading →

Letting Go of My Calendar Life

How dependent are you on a calendar? Maybe a paper calendar or the easily accessible phone calendar? I am too dependent on the calendar. There are three things in this life that I adore: calendars, lists, and sour gummy worms. But I’m going to focus on the first thing for now. (I may have to... Continue Reading →
