Two sources of evil: fuckboys and alcohol.

"Happy New Year, Beth :)" the text(s) read. Does that happen to anyone else? As soon as Christmas or NYE hits, your inbox suddenly becomes flooded with messages from men you haven't spoken to in months? It's like, ah, I know I fucked up, but it's the holidays! Happy Holidays! Let's forget about everything I've ever [...]

Powerful Women Project: Amanda Nelson

The response I received on this post prompted this project: the Powerful Women Project. At times I feel unsure of the choices I make, the life I'm choosing to live at this point, the guys I choose to spend my time with, etc. I'm supposed to have a corporate job with benefits, a steady relationship, an [...]

My Tuesdays are different than your Tuesdays

I roll out of bed at around 4:30am even after a 1:00am clock out at work a short 3.5 hours prior. My phone lies on my nightstand lit up with Nordstrom Rack emails, Tinder messages, and an option to hit "Sleep."

Read this if you’re uncertain about what’s next

So, what's next? A question as a young-twenty something I get ALL of the time. Usually this is pertaining to jobs, sometimes it's after I rant about a stupid guy (happens frequently).
