What Graduation is Not

What Graduation is Not

You have begun the last fifteen Septembers of your life (give or take) at a desk. Until this moment, you’ve been in a relationship with your education. That isn’t to say it’s been an entirely happy, easy, or even a committed relationship. You may have blown it off a couple of times for a wild night out...
Best Friends... Forever? How to Stay in Touch and When to Let Them Go

Best Friends… Forever? How to Stay in Touch and When to Let Them Go

  People love the idea of being friends forever. I spent most of my grade school years sporting jewelry that only said “best,” because another pal had the matching bracelet that said “friends.” The term “BFF” might as well be in the dictionary, if it isn’t already. And let’s be honest – girls start dreaming...
Graduation: YAY With a Side of OMG

Graduation: YAY With a Side of OMG

Graduating can be pretty scary… Actually, it can be very scary. Happy, sad, confused, frustrated, ecstatic, excited, worried — these are just some of the emotions that come with finishing up an undergraduate degree, and let me tell you, it is a roller coaster. I can still picture my frosh week and my very first...
Why Every Girl Needs an A**Hole in Her Life

Why Every Girl Needs an A**Hole in Her Life

A**hole. A word many girls have used to describe guys — whether it be ex-boyfriends, their boyfriend’s best friend, or some random guy that thought he could pick you up with a degrading one-liner at the bar. And most of the time, the nickname suits the person upon whom it has been pinned. Many people...
Knock, Knock: Communication is At the Door

Knock, Knock: Communication is At the Door

Ah, there it is again, that dreaded word: Communication. It’s something that’s so necessary in relationships, yet makes people run screaming at the thought of it. And yes, I’m one of those people… but I swear I’m trying to change my ways, and if you’re like me, then hopefully you’ll want to change it too....
Living Abroad: A To-Do List

Living Abroad: A To-Do List

A year ago, I was living in Scotland. It’s strange to say that and even stranger to think it. I feel pretty sure that I can say I really lived during those six months, but I wish I’d had some sort of manual of dos and don’ts to guide me along the way. The thing is,...
Live Dangerously

Live Dangerously

Yesterday I broke my nose. I broke my nose. I broke my nose. No matter how many times I repeat it to myself, it still seems surreal. I go to college in Southern California, so surfing is a regular thing for me. It was a typical morning; I finished classes for the week and was...
At Twenty-Two

At Twenty-Two

I have always hoped to look back on my life in fifty years and think, “At twenty-two I had it made. I was young and beautiful, thin and sexy, popular and intelligent. I was invited to the best parties, went to the best places, knew the funniest people. At twenty-two, life was perfect.” But the...

Social Media Dangers in a Socially-Focused World

Social Media Dangers in a Socially-Focused World

It goes without saying that social networking has completely overtaken our society. Beginning with the reinvigorated excitement over Facebook, into what sparked the popularity of Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest: you name it, we spend countless hours on it updating, scrolling, and posting to media sites that make us feel “connected.” In its most innocent form, social...
Plenty of Fish in the Sea

Plenty of Fish in the Sea

Plenty of fish in the sea. This phrase is often used when someone is feeling rejected from someone they wish they could be with. Your girlfriend gets dumped and there you go on saying, “There are plenty more fish in the sea.” I personally hate this phrase. I get that we live in a large...
