When was a time you felt most complete?

Lunch at with my parents, brother, and grandparents during DePaul 2014 graduation weekend. Enjoying a meal while surrounded by their love, laughter, and conversation made me feel complete. I would give anything for a rewind button so all six of us could be together in that moment again.

What was the last book you read? What did you think of it?

Currently reading, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), Mindy Kaling is a great storyteller. I can relate to her life and her journey.

Aloha. Good movie, but I wish John Krasinski talked more.

What was the last mind-blowing fact you learned or realized that shifted your worldview?

Letting toxic people go is not an act of cruelty, it’s an act of self-care.
Real talk, over the last year I have been shown I don’t need those toxic people. I am not going to please everyone. Making time for myself to listening to my own needs, and do my own things is crucial to my sanity.
