September Goals

  Hellllo September, and happy Labor Day! Seriously, the first day of September, the weather was like, “Alright, chill out.” Pun totally intended. I am so happy – you will not see me complaining when the weather starts to cool down, I absolutely love legging and boot season!   I’m excited to share my monthly mind-body-soul goals post with y’all today. Let’s take a look back at August and what I was working towards.  August Goals in Review Control my[Read more]

10 Little Things I Love About My Sister

  If you had told me 20 years ago that I would be sitting here today writing a list of 10 things that I love about my older sister (Meg is nearly 3 years older than me), I probably would have laughed in your face and would have asked if I could write a list of things I didn’t like about her. Growing up, Meg and I did NOT see eye to eye often. Sharing a room was quite the[Read more]

3 Reasons Why You Should Have a Side Hustle

  If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard the term “side hustle”…let’s just say I’d be pretty happy! Nowadays, everyone is talking about side hustles. A side hustle is exactly what it sounds like – something you do on the side to make additional income. I hear about side hustles all the time, and many people work their tails off to try and turn their side hustle into their full-time gig. For us “corporate America” folks, though, I[Read more]

The 6 Biggest Lessons I Learned During My First Year Blogging

    Good morning, good morning! Sunday, I got a notification that it was my WordPress anniversary (I didn’t know I’d get a notification for that but was so happy seeing it!). See, when I started my blog a year ago, I was in a much different place than where I’m at today. I’m so incredibly PROUD of what I’ve done with Making it Millennial. This is my 92nd blog post! I started this blog with the mission of empowering[Read more]

3 Ways to Set Boundaries When You’re a Workaholic

  Raise your hand if you have fallen into the FILO or “first in, last out” workday(s) pattern? I’m guilty of this much more than I’d like to admit. After reading this Boston Globe article on how work-obsessed millennials are, I was laughing out loud because everything I read rang so true: I check my email a dozen times when I get home from work/when I wake up, requesting vacation time is a struggle because there never seems to be[Read more]

When Paranoia is Real…

  I don’t know whether it was my sister tormenting me by saying that Penny the Clown was coming up the drain to get me when we took baths together as little kids or all the horror movies my parents loved watching while I was a wee little babe, but honestly, I have been a paranoid person what feels like forever. And I’m not proud of it – it’s something I kind of hate about myself, actually. It’s just so[Read more]

August Goals

  How’s everyone’s August been so far? It’s been unusually nice this August – not too hot, kind of rainy – definitely atypical for the East Coast. I’ve really been enjoying this kind of weather!   This past weekend, my boyfriend and I had a handful of friends over for dinner, drinks, and a belated birthday celebration for one of our friends, Emily. My other friend, Ali brought a gluten AND dairy-free chocolate cake. Now, when she told me it[Read more]

Introducing the Last Print of the Puzzle | Etsy Shop

  I’ve been MIA the past couple of weeks, and it’s been for a really good reason!  What Have I Been Up To? Last year at this time, I was unemployed and searching for a lot of things: confidence, a job, purpose, and so much more. It took a whole lot of soul searching to break out of my comfort zone and go to Meetups for networking and making new connections (it’s all about WHO you know, not WHAT you[Read more]
