About six months ago, I went through an especially painful breakup with Netflix. I swore my ex off, lamenting all the time I lost in my less-than rewarding relationship. In short, I wanted my productivity back. The result? At first, it wasn’t revolutionary. I spent much of the time I would’ve spent binge-watching shows scrolling … Continue reading My Imaginary Pigeon
Last night, the clouds vomited some freezing rain, and now it’s been reduced to a slushy, white residue mixed with salt that leaves a mess at your front door. It’s so overcast that the sky doesn’t appear to be cloudy at all. It just looks like one solid layer of gray. If one of Harry … Continue reading Sinuses, Syllabi, and Sluggish First Days
Years are a more or less arbitrary marking of time. Still, I decided to take the opportunity to reflect on everything I learned in 2017, and share it here. Some of it's the trite-but-true, and some of it's a coffee-addict original. Of course, I'm looking forward to growth over the course of this year, and … Continue reading 30 Things I learned in 2017: A quality Listicle
Hey everyone! My roommate made me go with her to the library to study today. I thought I'd provide some of my positive, uplifting thoughts I had during my visit. Enjoy. It’s really cold in here.

It’s wondering where everyone staking out at the library has been all semester, and wishing they understood that the quiet floor means you can’t run your stupid … Continue reading It’s here.

Anyone who has been thirteen (or currently is) knows that a crisis begins around this age. Okay, well, a lot of crises, but I’m going to focus on one, because I’m not looking to write a 500 page book on the subject of early teenage crises. This crisis is one of identity. It’s that awful … Continue reading Yes, That Too.
Hey everyone! I have had an insanely busy past two weeks, and it's not over yet. I'm sorry for posting sparingly; I've been thinking about my blog constantly, but I haven't had much time to write. To make it up to you, I'm posting a lovely fall story I wrote for my fiction writing class … Continue reading The Moon, the Lake, and Lydia
Yes, everyone. I am going to be a stereotypical millennial and write about social media. I’ve been sitting on this topic for a while, because it’s a little overdone. There’s articles criticizing social media. There’s articles defending it. We talk about it until our mouths run dry and write about it until our fingers bleed. … Continue reading Social Media and Millennials Like Me
I learned in class the other day that resumes can have entire sections for awards. Mine is blank. I never really get awards. I'm pretty sure I've been passed up for participation trophies. Other people seem to be constantly rewarded for, you know, existing. Anyways, I’m a little disappointed at this under recognition. I can … Continue reading I’m Such a Winner! Awards I’ve Won!
