Single Syndrome: It’s More Common Than You Think

I’m the kind of girl that sort of laughs (some might call it mocking) at words such as “relationship,” “boyfriend,” “dating,” or “long term” — and I really don’t feel bad about it. It seems rude, and I’m not trying to be. To the girls that can handle being in a relationship or like long-term...

Coco Chanel once said, “I don’t care what you think about me, I don’t think about you at all.” Oh, if only. If only we all could convince our brains to think like this. I truly admire those girls who just don’t care at all. Because although I am completely comfortable with being single, just...

3 Minutes of Hell: The Pregnancy Scare

With the holidays amongst us, I’m constantly surrounded by family, both mine and my boyfriend Nick’s.  It’s not bad.  For the most part, they’re all great people who we love and respect…except for the times when we want to strangle and hurt them.  For some reason, being 22 and in a 2.5 year-long relationship means...
