What are your weaknesses? How have they helped you?

Bacon Cheeseburgers. They’ve never been any help. A weakness though, that I wish to improve is sometimes being too self-involved in my own bubble. It has helped me think though my thoughts.

What has been the best learning experience?

Getting on a plane to Banff with a one way ticket almost three years ago now. Being literally thousands of miles away from everyone I knew  and having to learn who I was without them.  Also living on my own and having to make time for boring adult things as well as finding time for my passions .

The Trials of Trauma

I was always in such a rooted, permanent state of anxiety that eventually when the stress bottled up to be too much my fight or flight would kick in full force. I didn’t have bad days. I had explosive ones. I was scared to be happy and comfortable.

We wanted a podcast that felt like you were hanging out with your friends in your living room. So after many days of hanging out and talking in the living room we decided to actually do it. We hope you enjoy our stories, experiences, and advice. We hope you feel at home, and we definitely hope you laugh.

If you have anything you want to hear us talk about, or want to be a guest, please e-mail us with inquiries at herhabitatblog@gmail.com with the subject “PODCAST”.

Sifting Through My Education

It seems obvious, but I needed the reminder. She said, “if you need to put your head down and just get through school, then maybe that’s what you need to do. But, every time you talk about your housemates, you laugh and you smile. And so, I have a feeling that although you hate school, you don’t hate everything about being here. And I want to remind you that you will never get to experience these 12 weeks ever again in your life.”

High Expectations vs Negative Expectations

Living up to high expectations is hard. We have them for ourselves, people who love us the most have them for us, and even people who seem to have only the most basic interest or understanding of us do too. They seem well-intentioned, say that they see all the potential we have, but realistically it […]

Trying To Be Good

Trying to be honest about yourself in a public way is very challenging. For me, it’s not about the introspection. It’s more about getting over how people are going to react once the story changes.

Living With People I Love

I’ve never really lived alone. From living with my mom, I went to living in an apartment with a roommate who was always someone I knew in one intimate way or another. I’m not easy to live with. I have high expectations, can be a hypocrite, hate doing the dishes, and want my own personal […]

Follow The Hoax

My point is, it doesn’t harm you to believe in something. It can actually be greatly beneficial to open yourself up to something that may seem like a hoax. It may feel silly to sit with headphones on and your eyes closed listening to a soothing voice and ocean waves, but what do you have to lose from trying?

The Selective Memory of The Subconscious

Do you ever come into abrupt consciousness because of the mundane? You are walking. Walking. Legs moving automatically. Feel the weight of your thighs and the flexibility in your hips. Moving forward. A pace. How can we remember to fidget and blink and lick our lips, but somehow it is so easy to forget how to […]
