When Interviews Aren’t Stressful Enough…

As a writer, I tend to be a little (very) introverted. I also like to (LOVE TO) overthink. So, put all of that together, it’s pretty obvious that stressful situations such as – oh, let’s say job interviews – aren’t my cup of tea (actually, I don’t know anyone who likes them. Does anyone?). WithContinue reading “When Interviews Aren’t Stressful Enough…”

You Know You’re “Old” When…

Millennials don’t like the thought of truly growing up. I mean, Neverland sounds rad, right? Freedom of an adult, responsibilities of a kid? Sign me right up. Unless someone out there has any pixie dust, we have to embrace the fact that we need to figure out how to “adult” – without losing our minds.Continue reading “You Know You’re “Old” When…”

Packing For Disney

(When Queen Elsa Is Visiting Florida) I took a three-day trip to Disney during a pretty harsh cold snap – which meant packing some extra clothes. I tend over-pack for trips – I mean, what if, for some reason, I spill something on myself everyday? I’ll need a replacement shirt, a shirt for various occasions,Continue reading “Packing For Disney”

Hey, Princess!

So, who doesn’t hate their hair for at least half of their life? I’m a ginger. A good chunk of me comes from Scotland, Ireland, and England, so I was “cursed” with large, curly hair. Until recently, I thought I had vibes closer to those of an evil, crazed Azkaban escapee (Helena Bonham Carter wasContinue reading “Hey, Princess!”

Wisdom Teeth Don’t Deserve Their Name

It’s kind of like a right of passage – like doing taxes or sitting at the DMV for five hours on a Saturday. Once you find yourself wasting a perfectly good day off doing something less interesting than watching your nails grow, you’re basically a real adult. Congratulations. Well, after getting your wisdom teeth rippedContinue reading “Wisdom Teeth Don’t Deserve Their Name”

Sam Went To Scotland (And Became A Tourist Attraction)

I went to Scotland in the summer of 2017 for a short semester. I was super stoked for all of the beautiful scenery, culture, and haunted dungeons, (and, of course, you know, the writing classes). However, I did not anticipate actually becoming a tourist attraction. I Mean – Look At This Place! While I wasContinue reading “Sam Went To Scotland (And Became A Tourist Attraction)”

The Cyst-er: Emma’s Wrath

We last left my pal Rebecca cyst-er-less. Her future looked bright. She was back to being an only child – at least, she hoped. Although trembling from fear and adrenaline after the extraction, she was ready to shed her “hospital” gown and pull on her flannel shirt (which took a solid five minutes, thanks toContinue reading “The Cyst-er: Emma’s Wrath”

GRAINS

            I’m one of those lucky people who doesn’t have to worry about her weight – if I even look at a treadmill, I lose ten pounds.  My friends resented me for it and although they always saw the massive amounts of food I’d cram into my mouth, they’d tell me I was anorexic.             Continue reading “GRAINS”

Cats and Christmas

In honor of Christmas Eve, I pose this thought: How many ornaments have fallen to their deaths, thanks to our furry feline friends? Notice dogs aren’t necessarily drawn to destroy the glittery objects. Cats are up to something. And I want to figure out what it is exactly. Whether they’re kittens experiencing the holidays forContinue reading “Cats and Christmas”
