I was the baby of four children who were way older, so I spent my youth not riding bikes but pretending to read the Catcher in the Rye. This experience has left me with a level of pretension that is hard to match. I was also quiz bowl captain and generally restless, so I've been … Continue reading art I like for certain moods

is it wrong to pursue your friend’s ex?
First off, I want to say that opinions about this of course vary widely and that my take on this probably shouldn't be the one you listen to. I will give you my opinion though, having loved and lost a lot -- both romantically and platonically -- in my short life. To put it simply, … Continue reading is it wrong to pursue your friend’s ex?
my skin story + 2 favorites
Just what’s been working for me lately! Wishful’s Honey Balm moisturizer and Youth to the People’s Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask. You can get them at Sephora and at their respective websites online. P.S. I’m aware I should learn to angle myself in a more flattering way.

12 things i’ve learned and 12 things i haven’t at 24
Holy moly I'm 24! What?? That's hard for me to fathom. This is the age a younger me would have dreamed to be engaged. I would not have ever thought I'd be in undergrad still, but hey, I actually like myself these days...which is pretty cool. I'm lucky to go to bed proud of myself … Continue reading 12 things i’ve learned and 12 things i haven’t at 24

Artwork by Karl Wagner As someone who has been lucky enough to live outside the confines of this home state of mine, I know how Mississippi is perceived by a large part of the population. I mean one time in college I told a guy I lived in Mississippi and he said, "Oh, Mississippi, Tennessee?" … Continue reading why I live in Mississippi
my high school experience: looking back at private Christian school, pt. I
This topic is actually one of my most requested by fellow alumni of my high school. I think that we all remember our respective experiences at <insert school name here> quite differently, almost to an abnormal degree. I also think my particular high school was very unique in several ways, mainly in its being the … Continue reading my high school experience: looking back at private Christian school, pt. I
things i have loved this fall 2020
I actually get a considerable number of questions about makeup/skincare/health in general, which is wild because I’m far from an expert about any of those. I do conduct a lot of research before I buy anything, and I do have eight years of experience trying to turn my face into a different looking face. This … Continue reading things i have loved this fall 2020

the dog who rescued me
"This is your dog," my mom said, emphatically shoving a phone in my face that presented a picture of the scraggliest, oddest-looking kangaroo/deer creature I had ever seen. I'm not sure what caused me to pick up the phone -- whether it were desperation after having searched for a dog to adopt for months, plain … Continue reading the dog who rescued me
is it a toxic relationship or are we just in a rough patch?
This is a question I've found myself asking myself a number of times in my life, whether it be concerning a romantic or platonic relationship. Everyone will find his or herself in this position at least once in life, but I think I've been there so many times because I was very fake for a … Continue reading is it a toxic relationship or are we just in a rough patch?
