    A Letter For My Mom 🎈🎁

    So today is my mom’s birthday! And of course I’m sending her a gift, but I also wanted to write something to tell my mom how much I love her. Except it was a little hard, because we haven’t always had the best relationship. So, I googled “famous songs about moms”. It took me one song to know what to write. Here’s why I love my mom: She’s beautiful. Her smile and laugh have always been two of my favorite things in the entire world. My mother lights up every room she walks into and I love her for it. My mom sparkles.  She’s literally one of the strongest people…

    Frustrated? Don’t Lock Your Roomie In The Bathroom 😉

    I threw a temper tantrum yesterday. It was small and semi-concealed and involved me talking to 2 supervisors, HR, and eventually my district manager (sister of a family friend) for a day off. I got ½ a day. Instead of 10 hours Sunday, I work 4. 🙃 At first I thought I was being a spoiled brat, and was super hard on myself; but then I realized I’m exhausted because I’m frustrated and I do a lot. I have a YouTube, a blog, I’m launching a small business, and on top of that I’m now working 45 hours/wk at a job I don’t love. Don’t get me wrong, I love…

    From Poor to Upper Middle Class 💅🏼

    I woke up in Alaska today! 30 hours of travel was absolutely BRUTAL (and I still need a nap) but I freaking woke up in Alaska today! My room is unpacked, I have a dresser and a closet I share with my 70+ year old roommate, and I get to live in Alaska for the next 3 months! ❤️ I am so excited to see who I’ll be when I leave; and I am so excited to live every experience that helps me become that person. I got a tattoo on Saturday that says “Brilliant,” and that just means I get to live a brilliant life. Plus, I do believe…

    Want Success? Plant A Seed Every Day 🌵

    This week, I figured out something that’s kind of important: Do ONE thing at a time. I have so much to do, that I get overwhelmed and end up doing nothing; and yesterday, I stuck to one thing all day and got it done. To be more specific, yesterday I completed ❤️ my casting application for The Bachelor. Of course I was still stressed and overwhelmed about not creating the new store; and today that’s what I woke up stressed about. But know what I’m not stressed about? My Bachelor application. 😁 That envelope is sealed, signed, dated, and ready to go. It just needs a stamp. Plant a seed…

    I Don’t Want A Job, I Want A Baby 🧸

    Just talked to my mom and she dropped that little “B” word again: burden. I do not want a job. In fact, I have NEVER wanted a job. I have literally quit every job I’ve ever had and just last week I turned down a $55k marketing position in Los Angeles to be unemployed in New Jersey. My mom thinks I should apply to Target. Know what I want? A rich husband and babies. I get it, for other women that might not be a reality. For my mother, that is probably not a reality. But me? A tall, lean, well spoken, 26 year old Ivy League graduate who looks…

    We (Millennials) Think We’re Poor, But We’re Really Not 🤯

    Have you seen the recent season of Shameless where Frank competes with homeless people and a black sorority girl for the title of “The Hobo Loco Man”? No? Well you’re missing out! In this (epic) season of one of my favorite shows in the entire world, some savvy digital marketers realize young people love to be poor. We love to be homeless! Maybe it’s the thrill of it? So how else do you get us to buy beer: Have homeless-adjacent people fight to the death to sell it to us? YES! All jokes aside, this season brought a few questions to my mind: 1) Am I really homeless? 2) Did…

    Welcome to Seattle! Failing Out Loud 🚣

    So I’ve been homeless for 3 months. I’ve lived in at least 6 cities, tripled the names in my contact list, and traded my MacBook Air for an iPad with a keyboard because iPads have data and travel is life. My Verizon phone bill is Unlimited Everything and $150 a month. And I can’t tell you the last time I paid rent. Or held a job longer than two weeks. Before this, I can’t tell you the last time I really liked myself. Or was proud of my accomplishments. I can’t tell you the last time I looked at my life and smiled. Now, I get giddy. Literally. I’m fucking…

    Dear Ayesha Curry 🥰

    When I first saw Black Twitter tear Ayesha Curry to shreds, I laughed and laughed and laughed. I remembered Ayesha’s 2015 tweet telling other women to, “keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters” and then I laughed again. Steph not hitting it right or something? Is he not still “the one who matters”? Sounds like Ayesha is finally getting what she deserves to me. But then I thought about it.. Here’s what I want to say to Ayesha Curry: I don’t agree with your Red Table Talk comment. I don’t see why a woman would want to be ogled by men who are not her husband.…

    Why Millennials Suck! 🤖

    So if you talk to people above 30, they think we’re as*holes. Why? Because we’re millennials and “millennials suck”! Here’s a breakdown of why we “suck” so much: We’re lazy. Social media and Postmates have created a reality where we want everything now, and we don’t want to put in any effort to get it. We don’t even have to leave our apartments to see our friends or have a fancy dinner, so why would we get up for anything else? We’re lazy, and I like it. We’ve also mastered efficiency, which older people could benefit from. We’re privileged and extremely entitled. As someone who didn’t come from privilege, I…

    Don’t Be A Jealous B*tch 🐬

    People are not always going to like me. Including blonde birthday girls who try and get me kicked out of bars because their friends like me too much. People are not always going to like you, because of their own insecurities. I won’t stop being charming, or beautiful, or funny. I won’t apologize or give you the spotlight. I’m here, whether you like it or not. And the next time you get angry with a girl for being too nice, ask yourself why you’re being such a jealous b*tch.  I’m sorry you don’t think your friends like you very much. Try *not being a raging ball of sadness. It is…
