It’s Facebook Official

It’s Facebook official: I am the most awkward person in human history.  I have few talents, but I’d have to say that making people generally uncomfortable in my presence is my specialty.  What, you ask, has spurred from within me this God-ordained proclamation?

I have a confession to make…

I have something to admit, and I think it might surprise you: Apparently, I have a bit of an attitude problem. Go ahead and take all the time you need to recover from the shock. A few weeks ago, I was sitting with my besties, watching horror movies on Netflix that were rated beneath two … Continue reading I have a confession to make…

Why I, an Adult, Have a Ducky Shower Curtain

  Indecision was tearing through my core.  I was standing in the home goods section of the department store, face to face with every shower curtain design known to mankind.  I licked my lips and stared vacantly, unable to register the sheer amount of bathroom décor before my own eyes. “We don’t have all day,” … Continue reading Why I, an Adult, Have a Ducky Shower Curtain

On Resolve and Pill-Swallowing

It has been drawn to my attention that the new year is fast approaching.  It has also been drawn to my attention that this arguably arbitrary celebration of the passage of time requires a resolution.  And a resolution requires resolve to do whatever it is that you’ve pledged to do in aforementioned well-meaning resolution.

Grunge and Glitter and Girls

What do sovereign power, glitter, and cotton-candy pink all have in common? They are my three childhood obsessions.  Well, that and baby-dolls, which I admit was weird. I mean, I don’t even like babies.  But whatever. My interests have always been somewhat of an oddity.  When I was a junior in high school, I painted … Continue reading Grunge and Glitter and Girls

My Internal Monologue: Thoughts from the University Library

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. Will this be on the exam? I doubt it, but if I don’t take notes on it, twenty bucks it … Continue reading My Internal Monologue: Thoughts from the University Library

My Personal Nuclear Disaster: A True Story

No one should have ever left me home alone in the first place.  It was a weight I was unprepared for, with a punishment so decisive and swift it would leave me devastated.  But I can’t go back in time.  I can’t change what I did.  And to this day, my mistakes haunt me. I … Continue reading My Personal Nuclear Disaster: A True Story

What Keeps me up at Night…

It’s 11:30 pm, and you hop into bed with your favorite pajamas and heavy eyelids.  You read for a few minutes, turn off the lamp on your nightstand, and BAM! You’re wide-awake.

Yes, That Too.

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.
