On Music: Or Why I am the World’s Biggest Fangirl of The National

If you follow me on the Twitter, you may have noticed that I love am slightly obsessed with The National. I’m a fangirl. I’ve pretty much never ever been a fangirl of anything in music, teevee, movies ever in my life like this. OK, I do really love Mad Men, but I’m not sure I […]

All the Changes

So I’ve got a lot going on in the next few weeks and I’m trying my hardest not to let my anxiety about all the things get carried away. Because I NEVER worry about anything. On May 30 (next Thursday!), my boyfriend is moving in with me! I’m beyond excited, but I’m also really nervous. […]

On My Love of Christmas Romance

I’m going to confess something, dear readers. This is something I’ve only recently confessed to Winey, so you know it’s big. It’s not that I’m afraid that anyone will judge me (okay, maybe just a little bit), but it’s just something that seems so silly. But here goes: Christmas turns me into a huge romantic […]

#25ActsofXmas

I’ve always been the gift-giving type. The more I like you, the more I’ll randomly buy you something, just because it made me think of you. I give gifts to show that I care about someone. I think I do that because that’s a way my family has always shown love. My grandma regularly takes […]

One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories happened when I was in fourth grade. When I was in fourth grade, my friend H and I spent a class period helping in the classroom designed for the mentally and physically disabled students; I think the rest of our class was being read to by our teacher (H […]

Dear Attention Whores

Dear Attention Whores, Stop it. You’re embarrassing yourselves and making me feel uncomfortable. Pointing out that you have boobs is not going to make people like you. Sure, someone who appreciates your boobs may take you home for the night, but that’s about all you’re going to get out of it. Maybe you think that’s […]

Embracing My Inner Alpha

It’s no secret that I can be a hardass bitch (in fact, it’s recently been established that I really am a bitch). I talk too loud when it isn’t always appropriate. I curse like a sailor. I’m a sassy motherfucker. I tell dead baby jokes when there’s a priest behind me (to be fair, I […]

On Growing One Year Older

I turn 29 on Saturday. I’ve never made a super huge deal about birthdays. As a child, having a summer birthday meant that I usually didn’t get to celebrate my birthday in school with  homemade cupcakes and a birthday crown like the other kids, unless we had too many snow days that school year. And […]

Of Being Alone and Loneliness: One is Not The Other

My grandma came to visit me on Saturday for the first time since I got divorced. I’d visited my family in Pennsylvania a few times, but it was her first time seeing my new place (she was quite skeptical about me moving). My grandma worries about me a lot. She doesn’t like where I work […]
