Work-Week Woes: All I Want is a Nap!

Dear adulthood,

You sure are exhausting. Gone are the childhood daydreams of growing up to be something superawesomefun and living lives of fanciness. What’s left? Exhaustion. Traffic. Nasty customers. It’s not all bad because I still love my job and what I do, but back-to-school season is our busy time and the emails, phone calls, requests, DEMANDS never stop! So, by the time I get home I am ready to drop.


Things That Make Me Go Mmmmmm….

Going from eating whatever I wanted to a Paleo lifestyle was not easy. In fact, a year has passed and it’s still a struggle! I decided to work with one cheat day (okay sometimes it’s 2+) per week to satisfy my insanely strong cravings during the week. U know it’s not perfect Paleo, but the cheat day helps me to stay consistent without fully falling off the wagon.



Supplementing my Hawaii Addiction

The sun is shining, the wind is warm, and the salty air of the beach beckons daily. Summertime has officially graced the Jersey Shore and rejuvenated my mental Hawaiian-ness. This warm weather makes my body yearn to be on those islands that I love: to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin, to see the beautiful ‘aina, to smell the intoxicating plumeria leis, to taste the salty brine of the ocean on my lips, and hear the velvety strums of a ukulele. Ah, Hawaii you have my heart.


The Meaning of Aloha

I’ve had a really fantastic day so far and I wanted to spread some of my positive energy out there to anyone who could use a little aloha.




Aloha world!

Hello world and welcome to my little slice of the interwebs.

I admit I am here selfishly to help fill the hours of my unemployed life with something constructive and interesting, but I am eternally grateful for any readership. Before I get ahead of myself, I would like to introduce you to your loyal and sincere writer.

My name is Kim and I am an aloha-minded girl living on the Jersey Shore (no, please do not insert fist pumping, orange tans, or jager bombs here). I love to learn, read, write, travel, create, cook, and live! I am quite curious about all topics and plan to exhaust my mind though researching it all. (more…)
