    For Your Mother’s Birthday 🧁

    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…

    From Poor to Black 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 that I share with my 70+ year old roommate, and now I get to live in Alaska for the next 3 months! Yay! ❤️ 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. After 6 months of constant travel, I feel ready to grow into the next phase of my life. Saturday night I…

    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…

    Hannah B + Handmaid’s Tale = The New Alabama #ROLLTIDE 🎓

    I don’t know about you, but I’m the kinda girl who watches The Bachelorette, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and CNN for drama. With that being said, something caught my eye this week: Sweet Bachelorette Hannah B from Sexist Sassy Alabama… I wonder if she knows? #ROLLTIDE This article started out as all the reasons I LOVE Hannah B, which I will list here:  She was the “crazy one” on Colton’s season of The Bachelor and that is #relatableAF. Cassie was normal and boring and I really wasn’t here for it; Cassie’s sister was on the show for 30 seconds and I even liked her better. 😂 Hannah is…

    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…

    I Can Fix All Your Problems 💋

    Here’s the thing: I get way too attached. To boys, ideas, very specific foods. When I like something I hold on forever because it is my everything and I must fight to the death to protect it. I’m a hopeless romantic and I believe in grand gestures, unconditional love, and epic battle scenes. That being said, I’m not really good at dealing with problems. I’m a little dramatic. I was seeing this guy and he said (something along the lines of), “Think big picture babe, not everything is a battle. Give in to win the war.” And that brought a flutter to my little overly romantic heart. Because I’m also…

    Go and Love Yourself 🦋

    I said something today and it broke my heart but I also know I need to accept it because it’s true. I’m used to not being supported. I’m used to it. And saying that out loud sucks because deep down, I know how true that is. It sucks because I’m used to not having literally anyone support me. Not a mom, a dad, a fairy godmother, nothing. That is a fact of my life. I’ve been trying to fight it and I’ve been trying to force people to love me, but I can’t. You can’t make people love you. You can’t make people believe in you. You can’t make people…
