In My Feelings

Every time I’ve fallen for a guy and it has ended (so, every time…) I’ve felt like I would never, ever get over it. I’ve felt like I would never be able to fully move on. Like I’d think about them every time I heard a song about love—whether the song was happy or sad. […]

Are Labels Keeping Us Apart?

I have more questions than answers when it comes to the male brain. But let’s start small today, class… What’s the deal with “labels”? How does one little word cause so much tension and strife? And, my most important question—is that all that’s keeping us apart? As you’ve gathered by now, I don’t have the […]

Book Review: The Girls

Sooo I’m pretty late to the game on reviewing this one. I read it, loved it, then life got busy. Same old story. Turns out the reminder I needed was a scandal: the author, Emma Cline, was accused of plagiarism by her ex-boyfriend. His claims were deemed false, so it sounds like a jealousy issue…but […]

Let’s Clear it Up: My Clarisonic Review

This post is sponsored by Clarisonic and Her Campus Media. A few weeks ago, I opened the mirrored cabinet in my bathroom. I reached for my acne spot-treatment, accidentally knocking over my age-preventing moisturizer. It felt like some sort of sick joke.

Dad-isms: Advice from My Father

Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. Sure, that’s a line from a 2000’s emo-pop song. But it’s also the truth. I’m 26 years old, but sometimes I feel like I’m 100. I am perpetually exhausted. Not your run-of-the-mill, I-work-a-full-time-job tired. We’re talking hit-by-a-bus, end-of-a-month-long-bender tired. The kind where your body feels like […]

Simple Garlic Shrimp

I’ve loved shrimp since I was a little kid. I actually had the most ridiculously expensive taste. My favorite meal? An appetizer of shrimp cocktail and steamed clams followed by an entrée of either lazy man’s lobster or prime rib, medium rare. You would think I had been raised in a palace with a full […]
