I’ve been in a very strange place as of late. I’m currently more than half way done with the fall semester of my sophomore year at college and I’d been thinking that things have been decent overall, all matters of privilege and opportunities considered. I’m on route to discovering what I want to do with […]Read More The Debilitation of Loneliness
(Just a note: the following post contains spoilers pertaining to the first two seasons of Orange is the New Black) This morning, my friend showed me an interesting article titled Orange is the New Black‘s Irresponsible Portrayal of Men. I quickly realized that the reason this article seemed familiar was because I had seen it […]Read More ‘Orange is the New Black’ Attention Grabbing Head-Line
Sometimes I feel like I live with a tiger in my house. I’ll wake up on days when both of my parents are home at the same time, and before I even go downstairs I can sense that the atmosphere is different. Sometimes shouting can be heard, sometimes stony silence. When I go downstairs, my […]Read More What We Always Tell Them (The Perception of Manhood)
I’m not gonna lie; I’ve been very unproductive with my time lately. School has started but the workload hasn’t kicked off yet, and with my new-found obsession with Adam Scott, I thought, ‘you know what I’m going to do? I’m gonna watch every movie Adam Scott’s been in that’s available on Netflix’. So far I’ve […]Read More Movie Review: Bachelorette
“Oh my god, what is she wearing?” A classmate of mine once muttered something along those lines in the middle of my math classroom. A student had just walked in to talk to our teacher and she was wearing very short shorts (for lack of a better term) that showed off quite a majority of […]Read More Why is Slut-Shaming a Bad Thing?
If you haven’t heard of it yet, Lily Allen’s new song “Hard Out Here” has been garnering a lot of interest as a female-empowerment song as well as a direct call-out to Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”. There are some direct shout-outs to his song/video as well as lines about sexism in general. The song has […]Read More “Hard Out Here” Song Review
Glee can be silly at times, it can be stupid at times, and it can be wrong at times-but even knowing that, I am sometimes still shocked by some of the things the characters say on that show, and get away with. Obviously characters are dynamic and not perfect, so it’s not a reflection of […]Read More LGGT Glee?
To be honest, the first thought that came in my mind when I decided to write this was “Ugh. Like clock-work, here comes my biyearly angst ridden blog post.” And still here I sit, at 1:30 a.m. in my dorm room, typing. And since I have yet to write a proper college post, I owe […]Read More Floating
At the beginning of this summer, my friend and I were interested in doing something we’d never done before. And school ending presented the perfect opportunity to bite the bullet and actually do it. I’d been obsessed with the idea of dyeing my hair, and only dyeing the ends was the perfect alternative for protecting […]Read More Dyeing Curly Hair (CG Method)
This is probably one of the most irrelevant and unrealistic posts I will ever write, but I figured it’d be fun to know and share with others. The secret to always having enough change for something isn’t in the amount of coins you have; it’s in the type of coins you have. Obviously no one is […]Read More How to Always Have Enough Change
