One fact about me that many people find surprising is that I was in a sorority in college. With my strict 10 pm bedtime, aversion to alcohol, and general awkwardness, I don’t exactly fit that good ole’ “sorority girl” stereotype. Granted, I was in a sorority at a small, liberal arts school, so most of our sororities were less big-mansions-with-hundreds-of-hot-blondes and more nerdy-awkward-liberal-arts-majors. While I … Continue reading Why I Joined a Sorority
Not to brag, but I liked fall before it was cool. I’ve always been into fall activities like pumpkin picking and corn mazes. I love the picturesque scene of leaves changing colors. Thanksgiving and Halloween parties are always a great time. In New Jersey, we’re fortunate enough (sometimes) to experience all of the seasons, and after living this way for so long, I don’t think … Continue reading It’s Fall, Y’all!
We’re constantly bombarded by the message that we need to have goals. We need to strive for success or we’re stagnating. Nothing good comes from staying in your comfort zone. Those who have big dreams are those who change the world, after all, and don’t you want to change the world? Especially in a world where everyone has social media and we all have a … Continue reading Learning to Not Be Goal-Obsessed
You know the type. They treat you like crap: always making you wait, making you feel emotionally and physically awful, making you spend a shitton of money, making you fight with your family…but you just can’t. Stay. Away. My love for all things Disney is well-known. I can sing pretty much every Disney Princess song verbatim, I own waaaaaay more Disney merch than any one … Continue reading Disney: That Bad Ex I Can’t Stop Texting
I just had my wisdom teeth removed last week, and it was the first surgery I’ve ever had done. Leading up to it, I was a nervous wreck. I had never been under anesthesia before, and I was worried about how my body would react to it. As someone with some deep-rooted emetophobia (fear of vomiting) and a history of family members being sensitive to … Continue reading Millennial’s First Surgery
When I was a kid, the adults in my life gave me a lot of preconceived notions about food. Don’t get me wrong. They were trying to teach me how to live a more healthy life, but I’ve still had to unlearn these lessons as I got older and gained more control over my eating habits. A lot of these lessons revolved around moderation because, … Continue reading Rethinking My Relationship with Food
Rejection isn’t fun. As a creative person who generally got good grades and lots of accolades when I was younger, I got used to a certain amount of success. Hell, in the 3rd grade, I had a breakdown over getting a D on a test. At the ripe old age of 26, my friends still talk about it. When we graduated from the 8th grade … Continue reading It’s Not You, It’s Me
