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”

Can't Live Without Them

Sometimes I feel like this is an even bigger controversy than politics. I’ve even seen this debate ruin friendships, chisel through relationships, and chop down family trees. We’re pretty passionate groups of people, I know. But why must our opinions create such wedges between us? Why can’t we just accept that some of us areContinue reading “Can't Live Without Them”
