Why reputation is exactly what I needed to hear

I, and I'm sure you too, know some people who really dislike Taylor Swift. I know, terrible opening sentence.

Please exclude me from your narrative of how I’m supposed to live my life.

And when you’re deciding something to … Continue reading Be someone

Why I can’t write.

I just want to come back, but I can't get it out. Millenials struggle with this all the time: inadequacy. Social media shows us the perfect parts of everyone's lives and makes us feel bad about ourselves. The thing is that's not my problem. My problem is I feel like that life is what y'all … Continue reading Why I can’t write.

Who would I pick if I was The Bachelorette

Yes, I am one of those girls. Do I care what you think about me now knowing that I watch The Bachelorette (and other parts of the franchise)? Nah. I think it's bomb af.
