On being a woman.

It’s been a shit couple of weeks for women, you guys. I mean, more so than usual. Birth control regulations rolled back. Harvey Weinstein. Cam Newton. I got into a Twitter fight with an asshole who a) didn’t understand why we were mad about Cam Newton and b) didn’t understand why saying “wouldn’t it be … Continue reading

262,800 minutes.

It’s after midnight, which means as of right now I’ve been officially unemployed for six months. Half a year. I’d been lying in bed for at least a half hour thinking about that realization before climbing out to fetch my computer and deal with the feelings the same way I’ve ever dealt with anything, by … Continue reading

Age ain’t nothing but a number.

  A friend of mine – one who has gone through her thirties and then some – posted this article on Facebook this morning. I clicked, I began to read, and as I did, my blood pressure rose, my heart started pounding, and I started to freak out a little. Here I am, I thought, … Continue reading

An open letter to Taylor Swift.

Dear Taylor, It seems like every time I’ve turned on the radio for the past few years, my hearing has been assaulted by your music. Most times I can’t change the channel quick enough.

The need to be fine again.

I’ve done a pretty good job of wiping my ex out of my life in the past few years. Phone number & emails deleted. Blocked on gchat. Blocked on Facebook, which is the best thing I could ever have done for my sanity, considering we have so many friends in common & I hated seeing … Continue reading

War on marriage? Give me a break.

I must congratulate President Obama today. Publicly pledging his support for same sex marriage was definitely a risky move. There are plenty of ignorant, prejudiced people in this nation who still believe that this is a country who should restrict the rights of a segment of its citizens, not the country that was founded upon … Continue reading

In search of the Peetas.

It’s no secret that I have a mild obsession with The Hunger Games. I love nearly everything about the series – the characters, the action, the commentary on the state of our country and the media. I absolutely adore Katniss Everdeen. I want to be her – minus the whole having to kill people or … Continue reading
