How Peeing My Pants Changed My Life Forever
This week I thought it would be fun to tell a couple of stories about peeing myself. When you accidentally pee yourself it really opens your eyes to a lot of things... Maybe, why didn't I just stop the conversation to go pee? Luckily these stories are laughable (almost) now! Video format coming soon!

A Different Side Of Me? Keeping It Real...
CYBER MONDAY IS NOVEMBER 29th 12am until 11:59pm - Shop our entire merch line for 50% off This week is a solo dolo episode. Unfortunately I'm in a bit of low slump with the changing of the seasons and such, but I think it's important to show the not-so-fun sides to everything. It's a huge stepping stone for me to discuss the negative feelings I'm having and use them in the episode rather than avoiding the responsibility of uploading all together. I'm very thankful for the family we've built around this podcast since January of this year. Thank you so much for tuning in every week! Happy Thanksgiving! ❤️ SHOP: New episode every Monday!

What Really Happened In LA... (Feat. Carson Lee Bradshaw)
Carson and I had the most fun on our trip to LA last month, so much fun that we thought it was worth a recap episode.

We are excited to announce that we have podcast merch on the way! Follow us on our social media pages for more updates on this.

I Got Overwhelmed...
I decided to open up about my therapy journey that I started about 4 months ago. I’m proud to welcome this kind of conversation to the podcast, because it’s something that has truly helped me SO much. Sometimes life just forces you to take a pause on a lot of things, and over the last few weeks the podcast needed to pause for me. However the break really brought all of the new things that are going on with The Blaze Her, my personal growth/experiences, music, and other things - it really helped bring it all to a head to give us a quality episode with tons of positive updates. I was afraid to jump back into the podcast too soon while I was going through “negative” experiences. I just didn’t want to put out content that reflected all of that. Thank you guys for sticking with me! I’m so excited for the future of Not A College Grad Be sure to follow the podcast on Instagram for merch updates and more! @notacollegegrad

I Stayed Out All Night and Learned Something...
This week I talk about something I realized while being out all night in my car and having what felt like a very unique conversation for me. And in the midst of this conversation I feel as if I may have reclaimed my youth... That feels weird saying at 25 years old, but I've been old for the last 5 years. I'm joined this week by, Sarah Mocanu, my assistant at Moss Videography - She shares about her freelance work and her goals! I love getting to work with Sarah and help her along her work journey because we have a lot of similarities in our personalities. It really help us work so well together! She's very lovable and is even a published illustrator. You can buy the book she was a part of creating here:

I am SO excited to announce that I got DUMPED... Lol! No but seriously, a huge part of owning your own business is being able to balance life struggles while keeping the business afloat. It's hard. It sucks. I'm no pro. And sometimes I forget that I'm a human that needs to take times to deal with feelings like this. I truly love burying my emotions and keeping myself preoccupied until I self destruct, it's what I do! But I'm trying to change that... Lol - So I thought it was fitting to share a little about this personal struggle, I'll keep you updated on the healing process, or I won't ever talk about this again. We'll see what happens! Welcome to season two of Not A College Grad. I have just as little of an idea on what to expect out of this season as you do, but let's have fun with it. I know the next few episodes are great and we're back on track with every Monday at 6am. Thank you for all of the support! ❤️

Why I Don't Smoke... Also, I'm GROWING!
Last weekend I decided to go hiking by myself for the first time... This was a huge milestone for me. Not because I'm afraid that someone could hurt me while I'm in the middle of the woods but because I have fears of the woods casually collapsing in on me...?! I shared my extreme paranoia and fears that I walk around dealing with on a daily basis... And that really leads into why I choose not to partake in smoking and things of that nature. (LOL) Does she need therapy?! We aren't sure. This is week I consumed a few different podcasts and books that really got my mind stirring and I used a lot of this episode as responses to that! I spoke about a conversation on Mood W Lauren Elizabeth... (love her) as well as responding verbally to some of the writing prompts in a book that I'm currently ready. "Buy Yourself The F*cking Lillies" By Tara Schuster.

Stop Trying to Get Motivated... Become Disciplined!!! (Feat. Payton Beaver)
One thing that I have learned from working for myself is the motivation isn't going to be there everyday... And if you're only counting on being motivated to get you out of bed every morning to accomplish your goals, you're a lot more likely to fail. No one is motivated EVERY SINGLE DAY! I am joined this week my wellness coach and nurse, Payton Beaver. She balances a happy life, from a sustainable source of happiness... Herself! She has really great insights on motivation and showing up. This woman wakes at 3:30am on most days... BY CHOICE. You're going to want to hear what she has to say! This episode is by far the most inspiring episode to me. I really want more episodes to becoming this type of conversation. Enjoy xoxo
