About the Blog

Hi! My name is Danielle, and I am a 19 year old young author. I don’t get enough sleep, drink way too much coffee, and use ice cream as a form of therapy. I cry over fictional characters, do yoga in order to stay sane, and have way too much fun going to Trader Joes. I feel pressured, I get anxious, and I overcome. I blast my music in the shower, and obviously I sing along. I ride my bike, read on the beach, and silently observe the beauty of nature. I love sunshine but also thunderstorms, and I greatly appreciate the duality of life. I have made many mistakes and will continue to make many more, but I know one thing for sure: I want to live every day to its fullest. I want to leave the world a better place than I found it, and I want to be happy.

I am writing this for you, and I am writing this for me.  I have faced and overcome many of the same struggles you and every young adult has faced. However, I have always solved my problems with a pen. I have written my way through all of life’s ups and downs, and I want to use what I have written in order to help the world. I am sharing my experiences, and the lessons life has taught me, so that I can help others handle the obstacles that this hectic, yet magical, human existence has thrown at them. 

I find it funny that we live in a world where it takes only the touch of a button to talk to someone halfway across the globe, but there seems to be a profound amount of disconnect. Through the added wavelengths, so much seems to be getting lost in translation. I see a need to bring people together, people who are going through the same struggles, people who can help each other, and hopefully bring a little more happiness into the world. I also see the need to share what I have learned. What good is it going to do sitting in a dusty diary?

This blog will be split into 4 sections: Lessons Learned, Life Hacks, Canvas, and Links.​

Life Hacks is where I will post articles pertaining to anything and everything that has to do with making life more manageable, such as self love tips, Do’s and Don’ts, recipes, etc.

Lessons Learned is where I will share the lessons that the experiences I have lived through thus far has taught me.

Canvas is where I will post miscellaneous art, such as poems and short stories, that I get inspired to create and want to share in some way.  


Links will be just that, links to websites, articles, other blogs, and YouTubers that I find to be helpful and inspiring. 



I am in no way saying that I have all the answers or that I know more than anyone reading this. I am learning and growing everyday, and I will continue to evolve until the day that I die. I am here with one intention only: to talk about my experiences and what they have taught me and to hopefully help other young adults just like me figure it all out.

I hope this blog will give you a new perspective, inspire you to be the best version of yourself, and make you smile :)

With love and light,
