Live Fast Live Young: Why I’m Knocking Out My Bucket List Early

Live Fast Live Young: Why I'm Knocking Out My Bucket List Early

I travel a lot. I quit my job if I’m unhappy. I make snap decisions because I don’t like to waste my time.

I’m realizing as I get older just how much energy I’m losing every year. I know that once I start building a family, I’m not going to have the ability (or the vitality) to road trip through New Zealand or blow off work for The Ellen Show. That’s why I’m tackling my bucket list in my twenties.

I understand that I’m approaching life in a somewhat irresponsible way. Trust me, my thoughts are constantly battling questions like “Should I be saving for retirement?” or “What if I miss out on a huge career opportunity because I decided to take on a Scandinavian winter?”

My Experience As An Audience Member On The Ellen Show

My Experience As An Audience Member On The Ellen Show

When my friend Sam texted me asking if I would like to attend The Ellen Show, I almost peed my pants. I had grown up watching Ellen Degeneres and it had been my dream to see a live taping. Every day after school, I would immediately run into the house, switch on the TV, and watch as Ellen and her guests played funny games and gave out amazing prizes to surprised guests.

So, I cancelled all my plans for Monday, October 16th and started mentally preparing.

My Au Pair Disaster in Madrid

My Au Pair Disaster in Madrid

Depending on how well you know me, you may have heard about my au pair disaster story. Basically, I moved to Madrid in hopes of learning Spanish through au pairing and it turned out to be a miserable experience. Lesson learned!!

I found the family on Aupairworld.com and it seemed like a situation that was too good to be true. The father was a well-known Spanish comedian and actor, and the wife seemed lovely. There was only one child so I thought, how hard could this be?

Why You Should Find A Mentor In Your Twenties

Why You Should Find A Mentor In Your Twenties

Two years ago, I was a totally different person. I had just graduated college, I was waiting tables, I lived with my grandparents, I was in a crappy relationship, and I had no self-confidence. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life and I felt completely lost. I let my inner mean girl rule my life which held me back from pursuing any sort of progress.

So, what changed? Simple, I asked for HELP.

Life is tough. But the best part about life is you don’t have to live it alone. Whatever you’ve been through and whatever you’re struggling with, chances are there is someone who has gone through the same thing. And they survived.

Alignment: How to Get S*%# Done and Feel Good About It

How to get things done and feel good about your work.

Lately, the word “alignment” has been popping up over and over again in the self-help and wellness industry. (Just listen to Jess Lively’s podcast, The Lively Show, and see for yourself). When I first heard the term, I thought it was some weird, woo woo practice like tarot card reading or fortune telling. But the more I learn about alignment, the more I realize how legitimate this concept is.

Getting into alignment simply means setting yourself up for success. Whether you’re about to write a blog post or deliver a speech to thousands of people, alignment will encourage peak performance.

Have you ever worked SO hard on something, but nothing you do seems to be productive or satisfying? This could be due to misalignment.

  • Today my Papa passed away... I'll always miss the days you showed up to our house with women's sunglasses on and awkwardly hummed whenever it got quiet. It saddens me that I couldn't say one last goodbye before I moved back, but at least we got to be roomies for a while. Roll tide and I'll see you again one day ❤️
  • When you don't know the words to the song so you just start yawning. #weddingcrashers #amber #quickpitcheck
  • Missing home and these two turds. Thank you for teaching me that Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch is actually @markwahlberg. #mindblown
  • In 2017, I will have crossed 5 countries off my bucket list, quit my desk job, started my own business, made it to my dog's first birthday without checking into a mental institution, launched a blog that has opened up some incredible doors, and had the opportunity to sit down with a number of influential public figures. I have no idea what 2018 will bring but I can't wait to find out. ❤️
  • Keep your friends close and your bitches closer
  • When the hell did my baby brother get so tall.... Thanks for nerding out with me in @tulummexico!
