I Hate Movies: Why La La Land is Actually Pretty Sweet

If you’re wondering, “Why are you writing about La La Land now, it’s been out forever?” then you clearly don’t understand how I watch things. Or how I refuse to watch things that are popular because of hype. I’ll admit to a vast hipster tendency of hating anything “cool” because I’m a jackass. But here’s… Continue reading I Hate Movies: Why La La Land is Actually Pretty Sweet

Day 3: Museums, museums, museums – and broing at the hostel

Yesterday I was entirely ridiculously ambitious and woke up early, ate breakfast, and walked my happy ass to the World War II museum all before 9am. Literally, my ass was happy. I was entirely way too excited to be there. National WWII Museum ¬†There are interactive parts all over the place, 5 different buildings, exhibits… Continue reading Day 3: Museums, museums, museums – and broing at the hostel

Day 2: I wear my flip-flops at night (so I can regret tomorrow)

Upon sabotaging my self with Bourbon Street on my first night and staying in bed watching The Office until 3pm, I took it a little easier on Tuesday. I hydrated and went to Popeye’s because it’s right next to The Quisby¬†(joy) and went for a walk. I found this small park (Colesium Square Park) between… Continue reading Day 2: I wear my flip-flops at night (so I can regret tomorrow)

Lady Doritos and 4 Other Lady Products: Why Marketing Needs to Chill the Fuck Out

Don’t get me wrong, there are some things women need that men do not. Summer’s Eve is a great example. Tampons. Monistat. You know. Things you need when you have a vagina.

So why is it, exactly, that… Continue reading Lady Doritos and 4 Other Lady Products: Why Marketing Needs to Chill the Fuck Out

Writing as Therapy: In Which I’ve Been Watching Too Much Scrubs

I had a rough morning. Everyone does – nobody likes Monday mornings even if they do journal the shit out of them on Instagram or Twitter or Facebook or wherever they choose to shout into the void about their positive outlooks on life. But this morning wasn’t a typical “Mondays Suck” morning. I felt very… Continue reading Writing as Therapy: In Which I’ve Been Watching Too Much Scrubs

“Cat Person”: Let’s Talk About Bad Sex, Baby

  OKAY. I’m only a little super hype about the fact that a short story from The New Yorker has swept through the internet and was actually noticed in the Memetic Hellscape that is 2017. It’s impressive. We should all pat ourselves on the back for reading more than 140-280 characters. Huzzah. And if you… Continue reading “Cat Person”: Let’s Talk About Bad Sex, Baby
