So This Is The New Year

It never fails that when the New Year rolls around I start singing Death Cab for Cutie’s The New Year in my head over and over. “So this is the new year and I don’t have any resolutions.” Which is appropriate because I’m not really one for resolutions. Resolutions feel so temporary to me. As […]

Thanks & Giving

Happy Thanksgiving Stranger Friends! It’s insane to think that it’s already here again but this year more than any seems like we need to focus on the name it self. The world feels like such a grim and alien place lately. Like it wouldn’t be the craziest thing if somehow we all ended up in […]

I’m Letting Love Trump Hate

It’s hard to believe that this election will finally come to an end tomorrow. It feels like it has lasted 300 years. Sorry Chicago Cubs, but your 108 years is nothing compared to how long this election has been. I would say I’m kidding and that I’m just being dramatic but I think we all […]

Good Grief, Good Grace

When I was 14, blink-182 released their untitled album and to say I loved it was an understatement. I listened to that album non-stop for months and since it was the first “parent friendly” album that also included in the car. Every time I climbed into my dad’s Tahoe the album came out of my […]

Just My Confidence & Me

I never really explained anywhere why I gave this site the name that I did. Little Victories comes from a song of the same name by Matt Nathanson. It is one of my favorite songs musically but especially lyrically. If you’re like me and have dealt with any form of anxiety you know how it […]

Let’s Get Real On the Internet

I think by now we all know that social media isn’t an accurate representation of people’s real lives. It’s the edited version with all the happy, pretty bits that you actually want people to see. The perfectly angled and filtered selfies, the dinner from the hippest restaurant in town, or the perfect scenery shot. People […]

The One Where I Tried Acupuncture

I went and got acupuncture for the first time last week and while the jury is still out on if it works the one thing I did learn is that apparently I’m doing everything in my life wrong. Yup, even breathing. My shoes are wrong and I shouldn’t wear heels, I shouldn’t be doing yoga […]
