MY 2017 RESOLUTIONS

No lie, I went to type the title and I typed "2016" instead of "2017", so this could just be foreshadowing, but I'm choosing to remain positive.


WELCOME BACK! I'm so excited to be back. I thoroughly missed blogging. I don't normally make resolutions because I know what I'm like and I likely won't stick to them, but this year is different, I am different. Adult life is funny, you know. I can actually feel a shift in the way I think and behave and it's scary but exciting. Without further ado, my 2017 resolutions.

1. Remind myself that I got a Fitbit for a reason and to actually attempt to get to the 10,000 step level every day.

2. Get rid of all of the clothes and shoes that I still say "I could wear this someday" to and realize someday will never come.

3. Say "sayonara" to all the people in my life that don't have a positive impact on me.

4. Learn how to play the ukulele.

5. Try 3 new foods.

6. Travel outside of the country.

7. Get an internship somewhere doing what I love to do.

8. Start saving money for when I have to return all of it to the government (yay student loans).

9. Read the entire Harry Potter series (do not kill me for never reading it or seeing the movies)

10. Care less about people's opinions of me and care more about people.


I feel like there are twenty billion resolutions I could come up with, but these are ones that I feel like I might actually accomplish and will make me a better person overall. I'm excited for this year. It's easy to say that at the start of a new year but I feel confident that this is going to be a good one. I'm eager to know what your new years resolutions are, if you have any, comment them below! I'm so happy to be back blogging, I'm full of ideas and I hope that you'll join me. Also, I don't technically have to blog for class this semester anymore but I enjoy it so much I've decided to keep up with it. Also, 90% of my poll-takers said that you'd like me to continue blogging so ask and you shall receive. I'll be posting once a week at least or whenever I feel like I have something relevant to say. Have a fantastic day!

  1. Personally like your blog. Glad you're going to continue looking forward to some new reading. Thought I would only start with one resolution and that would be do something once a week that makes me happy.

  2. I'm so pleased that you have chosen to continue writing publicly. You have a gift. I didn't officially make any resolutions, but I definitely resonate with #s 1, 2, and 3. As for #9, just do it! You will love immersing yourself in that world! Welcome back, Sierra!!

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
