Night Owls Do it Better

At least once a week I see an article or blog post about how to become better at being a morning person. “Don’t hit snooze!” they say. “Open the blinds!” they say. But what if you don’t want to be a morning person? Where’s the encouragement for those of us who give the midnight oil a run for its money? I know we need love too and I’m here to give you some! Here’s why being a night owl is way cooler than being a morning person. Way. Seriously. Continue Reading

Gift Ideas for the Writer in Your Life

I just want to start by saying that this post is in no way an attempt to coax anyone into buying me any of these things. I’m a writer so I’m simply giving you ideas for other writers. *insert smiling with angel halo emoji*

As with all creatively led folks, writers can be a bit complex and difficult to understand. OK maybe that’s just me as a person. Anyway the point is that it may not be easy to think of gifts to get because creatives are seemingly all over the place at times. Don’t worry though, I got you! Here are some things that any writer would appreciate receiving. Continue Reading

Uncomfortable moments are my life. There’s really no way around it and I know I’m not alone. Unless you live in a bubble here are 7 awkward moments you’ve probably experienced.

The store stalker. You’re walking around the grocery store minding your own business shopping just as happy as can be. You spot someone as you pick up a bunch of bananas. Then you keep on going to the cereal aisle and there they are again. This time you smile just to be polite and then head to the frozen foods section. And…yup you guessed it – that same person is there. Do we literally have the same shopping list? Are you following me? Wait – am I following you? Alright I’m confused now guess I’d better just head to the register. Continue Reading

That Time I Was a Cat Owner

“I hate cats.”

I’ve been saying that pretty much forever. I wasn’t allowed to have pets growing up (outside of a boring Beta which died quickly) and since being an adult all I’ve ever had are rabbits. After moving to Georgia I toyed around with the thought of having a dog. More for companionship than anything. Owning a dog comes with a lot of responsibility that I wasn’t totally ready for. So I put the idea out of my mind at least temporarily.

In comes this text from my little cousin… Continue Reading

10 Things More Important than Choosing a Sexual Partner

When I chose to give my virginity away it was a no brainer for me. I had a boyfriend and I was in (puppy) love with him. You couldn’t tell me that I wasn’t going to marry this boy and have all his babies. So naturally I chose him to be my “first.” I was aware of abstinence but no one put pressure on me to wait until marriage or a certain point in my life before having sex.

Of course I’m not with the boy anymore but giving him my virginity isn’t something that I regret. Times have changed a lot and women are able to be free with their bodies and not get ridiculed about it as much (tattoos, piercings, tight clothes, fishnet tights, thongs – you get it). Some young girls and women still feel the pressure of not having sex until marriage or some other pivotal point in their lives. This is especially true for people who come from a religious family. The argument is “there’s more to you than what’s between your legs. Let a man appreciate your totality as a person. Make him respect you.”

I know they mean well. But this can be a bit counteractive, don’t you think? They say she’s SOOO much more than her genitals and body but that’s what keeps getting drilled in her head. Speaking from personal experience, here are some things that are much more difficult to choose than a sexual partner. Continue Reading

Party planning period can be stressful but if you’re trying to surprise someone this rings even more true! Here are some things that helped me pull off her party successfully. Continue Reading

I’ve been candid about how long it took me to furnish my apartment after moving to a new state with pretty much nothing. I’ve been blessed financially but I’m always still searching for a deal before before spending money.

My place isn’t completely decorated but it’s come a long way in the last 6 months and I want to share what I’ve learned. Here are 6 ways that I’ve saved money while getting my place in order. Continue Reading

10 Most Recent Camera Roll Pics

We all know that you can learn a lot about a person by looking through their internet browser history (note to self: update will with specific instructions about this).

Anyway, another method to see into a person is to go through their camera roll. Phones are generally password protected and therefore can carry a lot of insight of a person’s mental. I gave you a glimpse into my thoughts before, but here are my 10 most recent camera photos. Continue Reading
