Inspiring female artists to add to your playlist.

Inspiring female artists to add to your playlist.

To call myself an "artist" would be a massive stretch. Creative? Yes. Artist? Ehh. If you count off-pitch sing-in-the-shower sessions and my innate ability to doodle the f*ck out of a new notebook, then, yes, maybe I am an artist. I can't sing. I simply can't. I want a phenomenal voice, like really bad. But, [...]

VLOG: Should you blog? Yes. Should I vlog? Idk, but here I am.

VLOG: Should you blog? Yes. Should I vlog? Idk, but here I am.

I never imagined myself to be a vlogger. It's like the super kewl and trendy thing to do nowadays, but man, being able to talk through a QWERTY keyboard is much easier than talking to Photo Booth alone in my apartment with Stella. For me, at least. So, when I asked myself if I should [...]

12 anti-Trump things to do today if you just tryna chill~

12 anti-Trump things to do today if you just tryna chill~

"What are your Inauguration plans?" Living in DC, the new home of our president-elect, this question is harder to avoid than most things. I have been trying to come to terms with this election ever since Trump unexpectedly became relevant in the midst of it all. For a while, his campaign felt like a trainwreck [...]

Here’s what I want my funeral to look like

Here’s what I want my funeral to look like

  Inspired by Mindy Kaling's book-because she's just the sh*t. Death. A morbid subject, yet inevitable to all. I have been to countless wakes and funeral in my lifetime, sadly. Distant cousins, grandmothers, an uncle to a friend of a friend who my dad knew on the board of directors for our youth basketball league. I mourned [...]

This is why I blog

This is why I blog

  When I started blogging as a sophomore in college, it was merely a fun side hobby. I wrote short posts, never diving into anything too personal. I didn't want to make my journal public--not because I didn't believe in my writing, but because vulnerability is scary as hell. Putting myself out there only to [...]

No, you cannot use me to cut the line.

No, you cannot use me to cut the line.

I don't hide the fact that I landed a pretty sweet gig after college. It started with a risky move away from home, continuing into brutal understaffed nights as a waitress, then to long days of working in the office prior to my brutal understaffed nights as a waitress until I finally landed into a salaried position at one [...]

That time I went to see Pope Francis by myself.

That time I went to see Pope Francis by myself.

The scariest part of moving away wasn't anything having to do with finances or mental stability. People asked me time and time again if I was scared, and I would always reply with, "No, I'm just excited," which was the honest truth. Oftentimes we avoid jumping into the unknown because we're afraid of what life might [...]

A tale from the “cute bartender.”

A tale from the “cute bartender.”

I have been working in the customer service industry since the day I was legally able to work. Starting out behind a counter at a hair salon, a couple years later transitioning to a cashier at a hockey store, soon after picking up a waitressing gig at college, and to top it off, I've been bartending for [...]
