Steps of Binge Watching A New Show

Hello Hello, So I’m not sure how many of you know just how much I love television and movies. And when I’m convinced either by myself or others to start a new show, pacing myself is never an option. And I know many of you out there can relate to binge watching shows. The more […]

A Letter to My High School English Teacher

Dearest English Honors Teacher, Thank you. Thank you for teaching me that English was much more than five paragraphs, a thesis statement and a conclusion. Thank you for teaching me to expand my mind. Thank you for letting me run wild on the pages of my notebook, writing whatever came to mind in no particular […]

When Did We All Grow Up?

Hi Everyone, After spending much needed vacation time with family, I came to one shocking realization: we all grew up. When did this happen? How is this possible?

America Land of the Free?

Hello, Okay, today’s post is going to be a bit more serious because I’ve been seeing things on the news that quite frankly are pissing me off.

You Don’t Have To Grow Up

Hello Hello, So a few months ago┬áI was celebrating my little cousin’s birthday and I told him “Don’t Grow Up. I mean it. Stay a kid forever.” And at that time, that made me so sad. And then today I thought to myself “I don’t want to be an adult anymore.” And that’s when it […]

Dearest Car,

Wow, what a run we’ve had. From impromptu trips to Detroit and Indianapolis to see One Direction, to late night dance parties, to moves, to cross country driving, to several other adventures. We have made some unforgettable memories. I’ve grown accustomed to your ways and the way you’ve always protected me and carried me. You’ve […]
