The Hardest Part About Growing Up

This has been on my mind a lot lately -- what's the most difficult thing you have encountered as an adult? To put it simply, I would say it is not being anyone's first person anymore. I get the term "first person" from Rosianna Halse Rojas' video, in which she talks about how communication changes … Continue reading The Hardest Part About Growing Up

Where are all the twenty-somethings?

I perhaps have a too much of a visibility complex. I want to be visible. I equate visibility with success. I'm not the only one either. In fact, older generations like to call mine the "me" generation, and they mean to be condescending. They think it is a proclivity to look in the mirror to … Continue reading Where are all the twenty-somethings?

The Versatile Blogger Award

An award? For me? That never happens! If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by the lovely Kaitlin over at Here’s to Twenty Something. Check out her blog — she posts about the important things like dating, working, mental health, fashion — really … Continue reading The Versatile Blogger Award

So You Want to Be a Writer

I think so . . . Maybe? Ugh I don’t know. In all my struggles of figuring out what I want to be when I grow up as a young adult-olescent who already is a grown-up (kind of), I have never been able to shake "Writer/Author" out of my head. It’s the dream that has … Continue reading So You Want to Be a Writer

Why Being Single in Your 20s is Actually Great

I was going to title this “Why Being Single in Your 20s is Not the End of the Goddamn World,” but that perhaps seemed a little too dramatic and perhaps like I’m attacking everyone who wants to get married right out of college. For the record, I'm not. But here's the deal: I have some … Continue reading Why Being Single in Your 20s is Actually Great

Adulting: Or Rather, Grow Up Already

This whole being-graduated-from-college thing has turned out to be one big wake up call. This article on the Financial Diet has been an even bigger one - one that was less gradual and way more direct. So, this is my response to it, as a girl who’s been there. Chelsea Fagan writes about this strange … Continue reading Adulting: Or Rather, Grow Up Already

A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Seriously, how “Fall” can I get right now? To celebrate the beginning of my very favorite season, my friends and I decided to take a trip out to the pumpkin patch. This wasn’t just any pumpkin patch, though. This was the pumpkin patch I went to as a small child. Only now, it is not … Continue reading A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

My Current Travel Bucket List

This was indeed a dangerous post to write because now I want to go to every single one of these places right this very minute. But, alas, I don't have the means. It's a sad, sad story - one I have told too many times before. So this one goes into the "long-term goals" category. … Continue reading My Current Travel Bucket List

What It’s Like to Be Fatter Than My Friends

I am not obese, nor do I consider myself as such - let's just get that out there. At most stores I am a Large. Pants size: 12. Bra size: 38D. Height: 5’9”. I don’t own a scale. The last time I officially weighed myself was probably at my last doctor’s appointment. I think I … Continue reading What It’s Like to Be Fatter Than My Friends

Why Starting a New Job Isn’t a Big Deal Anymore

I got a new job. But it's not a big deal. I’ve had a lot of different jobs over the years. I’ve worked in a craft/party supplies store, in a costume shop, as a painter (of walls, not portraits), in various theaters, as a barista, as a restaurant host, and now in retail. Starting this … Continue reading Why Starting a New Job Isn’t a Big Deal Anymore
