2019: My Year of Yes

I am not a huge fan of New Year’s Resolutions. There’s just something about them that leave me feeling icky and uninspired. Can anyone else relate?

I Took the Enneagram Test and Here's What Happened

I have been seeing people talk about the Enneagram Test kind of everywhere lately. I’ve always enjoyed learning more about personality types and that sort of thing so I figured, after seeing the test mentioned three different places this morning, that I would take the test and share my experience with you guys! This definitely wasn’t the post that I was intending to write today but things happen and I took seeing the Enneagram Test talk everywhere as a sign that I should take it. If you haven’t heard of it yet, the Enneagram of Personality, as defined by Wikipedia, is basically a model of the human psyche that includes nine personality types.
