Too Tired, Too Sleepy Or Hungover

She never wants someone to remember her as the one who was too tired, too sleepy or even hungover. Last night Miss America 2014 Nina Davulri mentioned being told some people will only meet Miss America once in their life. Nina realized she would be that Miss America for some people. We only meet some people once in […]

Wake-Up Call Wednesday: Normal Gets You Nowhere

This morning I landed in Chicago with below freezing temperatures embracing me, big name PR agencies filling the city, skyscrapers towering and people surrounding me. It’s easy to immediately feel lost and small, especially when a drive through Michigan Avenue will remind you of all the things you can’t afford. I wonder how did some […]

Be. More. Invested.

On the brink of graduation and truly for the last year I’ve noticed a lack of investment in people when it comes to our platonic relationships and potential romances. I’m not naïve or lacking the idea that all types of relationships are two-way. Too often people want you to meet them three-quarters down the road. […]

Cheers to A New Story

Cheers. Cheers to the late nights dancing to the beat and offbeat with friends. Cheers to the tears shared with friends over moments we’ve grown from. Cheers to the dates we smile about and the ones we remember with dread. Cheers to the moments we wanted to quit and the successes we didn’t imagine possible. […]

Background Music

I remember a few years ago I was in California and while wandering Palm Springs I went into this random shop. This guy told me my master astrology reading. He said in 2013 or 2014 I would meet the love of my life and in 2017 I would start my own business. I don’t know […]

Being 20-something via Thought Catalog

“If a brochure did exist, it would probably tell us this: You will make mistakes and do stupid things for as long as you live. What matters is how we use these to make us better people. At the same time, we’re young enough how to right those things that we did wrong—and to decide […]

For the Strivers! (And The Hills Fans)

Last month I received the opportunity of a PR guy and girl’s college career – to fly very last-minute to NYC and help a supervisor with a project. We’d both fly back in less than 24 hours from that call. For The Hills fans, it was a moment we thought only existed for Lauren Conrad […]

What Is a Connection?

I walked to my scooter and contemplated – when feels like the right moment to go after someone romantically. I saw these two guys exchange numbers towards the end of our Pride Student Union open house after talking back and forth throughout the event. I thought about my crush. or as I like to say, […]

Christopher Robin Said to Pooh

Loyalty can be a lonely place. Loyalty to your work, and your friendships, and mainly to yourself leads to confusion. The constant struggle to do what is right towards everyone along with yourself eventually leads to choices. Choices changing the complacent present. Even though you know this choice is correct, the future looks hazy and […]

2013, Which Way?

Every new year, every school semester, I imagine all these goals and resolutions that will come true. I’ll be in better shape. I’ll make moves career wise. I’ll be dating this great significant other. This year though, I don’t have those goals. I feel like I’m on the brink of something big I can’t quite […]
