I’ve Been Mistaken for Someone Who is Sunny

For reasons unbeknownst to me, I've been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I didn't think this day would ever come, and if it had, I only assumed it would be because I had poured a lot of my money into some other blogger's ventures. But this didn't cost me a dime! I didn't have… Continue reading I’ve Been Mistaken for Someone Who is Sunny

It’s 1 AM and the Police are Shutting Down a Party

I'd had a personal internalized vendetta against the obnoxious idiots who lived in the apartment below me. A vendetta that included complaining to my roommates and mumbling to myself and not addressing the situation like a responsible adult should. But it's finally happening! And I didn't have to do it! Someone else finally worked up… Continue reading It’s 1 AM and the Police are Shutting Down a Party

It’s 5 AM and My Neighbors Won’t Shut Up

I don't even live on campus, so I don't know why this is, but somehow my downstairs neighbors are the loudest people in my apartment complex. This perplexes me because up until about 2 weeks ago, I didn't even know anyone was living down there. My upstairs neighbors, the stampede of high heel-wearing wild animals… Continue reading It’s 5 AM and My Neighbors Won’t Shut Up

I’m a College Graduate and Everything Feels the Same

College graduation: The pinnacle of undergrad achievement. The ceremony where I would finally get the approximately three seconds of recognition I didn't really deserve. In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, I had been scrambling to finish all of my final essays and counting down the days for the torture to finally end. I… Continue reading I’m a College Graduate and Everything Feels the Same

I Don’t Fear the Dentist, Dad Jokes Are Another Story

I've never been afraid of the dentist. Growing up, whenever someone asked me which I preferred between a trip to the doctor or a trip to the dentist (which happened quite often for some reason) I always told them dentist. They would always prefer the doctor which made no sense to me because doctors give… Continue reading I Don’t Fear the Dentist, Dad Jokes Are Another Story

Losing God in a House of Prayer

I was brought up in a Christian church, so from a young age, my Sundays revolved around a belief in God that I didn’t question. Every summer, I would go away to a religious camp for one week in July. It was there I that felt closest to God, and it was there I discovered… Continue reading Losing God in a House of Prayer

My First (and Last) Attempt at Sports

When I was in fifth grade, I played a season of softball. I had never played any sports before then and I showed no interest in them, either. I enjoyed running, but I hardly had any softball experience. After little deliberation, (because I was a brash, I'm-doing-this-try-and-stop-me kind of kid) I decided softball was going… Continue reading My First (and Last) Attempt at Sports

My First College Party

I had never wanted to attend a college party. Nothing about them sounded like a good time to me. The scent of marijuana wafting through the air, drunk kids puking into bushes outside, girls scream-giggling at anything a dumb frat boy said, heavy bass and poor music assaulting my eardrums, the taste of cheap beer,… Continue reading My First College Party

I Need Creepy Old Man Repellent

It was a foggy October morning, but the weather wasn't unpleasant. I was wearing bright pink socks, which, as a girl who usually wears black from head to toe, was a change. I didn't mind it though. I was feeling kind of pink. Every time I looked down, I was reminded that today might be… Continue reading I Need Creepy Old Man Repellent

Kneeling Outside My Professor’s Office, Cursing at the Gods

I was going to get an 'F' on this essay. This essay that I had poured what was left of my heart and soul into. The very heart and soul that had been fading from my body since the beginning of the semester. College is the worst of parasites. Let me start at the beginning.… Continue reading Kneeling Outside My Professor’s Office, Cursing at the Gods
